It has been a very public battle that has star Houton Texans' player Arian Foster against a 20 year old college student Brittany Norwood.
She claims to be pregnant with Foster's unborn child.
The attorney representing Norwood tells FOX 26 news she is now negotiating a settlement with Foster.
Does this mean the Houston Texans' running back can put this all behind him?
Chris Tritico is the FOX 26 legal analystand he says, "the simple fact of the matter is if this is Arian's baby then the courts will require him to take care of it."
But at 17 weeks pregnant how do we know it's Foster's unborn child? Norwood has claimed tests have been done and they show Foster is 99.9% the father of the child.
But Tritico has another sceanrio for this settlement that's being worked on behind closed doors and out of the view of the public.
"It could be money now...my gut guess is if he says it's my baby I'm going to take care of it and pay the child support. That's the settlement I'm seeing and certainly there could be a cash payment Arian's got money," says Tritico.
And with more money comes more problems...just ask the former wife of former football Houston Oilers star Warren Moon.
Felicia Moon says, "I think he's made a good decision in saying let's get the attorneys to take care of this."
Felicia Moon has seen lots of controversy with her former football star husband...But she says just like Warren Moon did - Arian Foster will survive this bump in the road. However, she says his biggest hurdle is dealing with home after allegations of infidelity.
Moon says, "I also think this is a good time for his wife and family to make some decisions and now they can have some closure...and decided and say if I'm going to stay in this marriage."
A marriage that has seen some ups and downs while all being aired out very publicly in the courts and on social media.
