National Football League (NFL) superstar Tyreek Hill broke an influencer's leg by charging at her with "crushing force" during a backyard football lesson, Daily Mail reported citing an exclusively obtained lawsuit.

British-born influencer Sophie Hall claims that five-time All-Pro Hill felt humiliated after she allegedly knocked him backwards during practice drills at his $7 million Florida mansion.

The 29-year-old athlete retaliated by rushing at Hall and knocking her to the ground, leaving her with an injury for which she had to get reconstructive surgery and months of physiotherapy.

The 35-year-old model with more than two million social media followers is suing the scandal-plagued Miami Dolphins wide receiver for battery, assault and negligence.

"Tyreek Hill, a National Football League superstar, perennial Pro Bowler, First Team All-Pro and world-class athlete nicknamed the 'Cheetah' for his incredible combination of strength and speed, makes his living humiliating and outperforming his competition on the football field," her complaint states.

"Unfortunately, after getting 'humiliated' in front of friends and family when he was knocked backwards during a friendly football lesson by his friend Sophie Hall, Tyreek became enraged and forcefully and purposefully shoved Ms Hall, severely fracturing her leg."

In 2023, Hill had a successful season with 1,799 receiving yards and 13 touchdowns.

However, he faced a major backlash, after he was caught on CCTV allegedly slapping a marina worker, and became embroiled in paternity suits after his former team lost in the American Football Conference (AFC) Wild Card Game.

The Dolphins nor Hill have commented on Hall's allegations.
