NHL player Evander Kane was shut down in his attempt to dismiss his ex-girlfriend’s lawsuit over an alleged promise he made to pay her millions if she terminated a pregnancy.

According to court documents obtained by Radar, a federal judge denied a motion brought by the San Jose Sharks’ player in his legal battle with a woman named Hope Parker.

Back in 2018, Hope sued Evander accusing him of backing out of a deal to pay her $2.3 million if she aborted their pregnancy. Hope dated Evander from 2016 until June 2018. She claims they had sex and he knew she wasn’t on birth control because it “upset her system.”

She got pregnant with Evander but agreed to abort it. A short time after she got pregnant again by him but initially refused to go through with another procedure.

In her suit, she claims Evander put “unrelenting pressure” on her to abort, telling her it “would ruin his life.” She had the procedure after Evander’s pleas. Hope says it caused her great physical and mental harm.

She told Evander she would not going to the doctor. After weeks of back and forth, he agreed to pay her $2-$3 million if she aborted their kid. Hope says she went agreed to the deal and went to the doctor.

In her suit, she says the entire time Evander kept promising her he would be paying her the millions. The case was moving forward but then it all stalled when Evander filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy earlier this year. In his petition he listed $10.2 million in assets and $26.6 million in liabilities.

The current professional hockey player has made over $50 million in his career. Hope rushed to federal court demanding any judgment from her lawsuit not be wiped clean in the bankruptcy. Evander felt otherwise.

His lawyer wrote, “The Complaint presents a self-serving and disputed account of an intensely personal series of events that occurred within the context of a private sexual relationship between two consenting adults. Cutting through the dramatic and upsetting narrative, however, the complaint presents nothing more than a purported breach of an invalid and unenforceable contract, if anything.”

This week, the federal judge came back and shut down Evander’s attempt to dismiss the case. The court ordered the lawsuit will move forward and the San Jose Sharks player will have to sit for a deposition in the matter.
