Tyna Karageorge, 45, filed the suit Friday in Cook County (Ill.) Circuit Court, where she alleges Urlacher conspired with a Chicago Tribune reporter to portray her as a bad Mother, unfit and a killer.
Karageorge said she hasn’t had custody of her and Urlacher’s son, Kennedy, since shortly after Dec. 29, 2016, when her husband, Ryan Karageorge, died.
She said the couple were having an argument in their home when Ryan Karageorge pulled a gun from her purse and shot himself in the head. His death was ruled a suicide, but Kennedy was taken from the Karageorge home and placed with his father after Urlacher won temporary custody.
The Chicago Tribune ran a report in January 2017 that said the investigation into Ryan Karageorge’s death was still open.
