Loleini Tonga, Domestic Dispute at Center of Chris Henry Homicide Investigation

by at . Comments

After a troubled history with the law (five arrests in an 18-month span a few years ago), NFL star Chris Henry seemed to be coming back from the brink.

The football player credited his success in turning his life around to fiancée Loleini Tonga and their kids: Seini, 3, Chris Jr., 2, and DeMarcus, 10 months.

But now, after Henry passed away Thursday from injuries he sustained after a domestic dispute with Loleini Tonga, that relationship is in the crosshairs.

Homicide detectives have been assigned to the case, according to Charlotte-Mecklenburg police, after Henry fell out of a pickup truck earlier this week.

He suffered life-threatening injuries Tuesday and died early Wednesday.

The more details emerge, the more tragic the story becomes.

In the last conscious moments of Chris Henry's life, the Cincinnati Bengals member begged Tonga to stop so they could talk or he'd kill himself, a witness said.

Police say a domestic dispute jump-started the turn of events that led to fatal injuries Henry sustained after falling from the moving pickup. Henry was on medical leave visiting Loleini Tonga's family when the fight began Wednesday.

Neighbor Lee Hard, was on a ladder cutting back some trees when he saw the yellow pickup "zooming" up the Tongas' gravel driveway a few yards away.

Hardy said a shirtless black man (Chris Henry) clung to the top and side of the truck while standing in the bed, begging Loleini Tonga to stop the vehicle.

"He was banging on the top, on the doors, screaming, 'We need to talk,'" Hardy said. "He yelled, 'If you take off, I'm going to jump off and kill myself.'"

She stopped, hesitating at the end of the driveway, but then took off. Emergency dispatchers soon got a 911 call from a woman driving behind them.

It is not known how or why Chris Henry fell from the truck, but the fall ultimately claimed his life at 26. Also unclear is why Loleini Tonga and he argued that day.

TMZ may have shed some light on that, however. Just one day before he died, Henry met with a rep from a North Carolina wedding planning company.

That company claims the Cincinnati Bengals player was "annoyed" and "aggravated" Tuesday night at the cost of putting together his wedding to Tonga.

Henry became upset when he saw the bill and "with an attitude" asked Loleini, "How much we paying for all this?" The two then "bickered" over details.

Eventually Henry walked outside so Loleini could work out the details and fill out paperwork, which she later mentioned (seemingly happily) on MySpace.

You sound like a hot ass mess and stupid! First of all he only dated kayla's sister in high school for two years he knew that she was a lesbian that she was using him and once he found that out he started use her ass too! Kayla's sister also used the relationship to keep with social apperences anyway. They were never together after that! And they don't have a child together either! So fuck her,kayla, and lolieni's bitch asses they all are nothing but hoes and I know everyone of them personally too. Especially kayla's skank ass sister that hoe is a damn stripper at a club in houston, tx and suck mens dicks for a living! Those ho's ain't about shit and are never going to be shit!

It is always sad to hear of the passing of someone so young and full of life. It does not matter if he was famous or not, he was a father, son and a human being. No one will ever really know what happened except Chris, the young lady driving the truck and GOD. If she in anyway caused this young man's death she will answer to a greater power than man. I would just like to let Chris Henry's family know how sorry I am for their lost. I just read about a fourth child of Henry's but I know God will watch over all his children. May God bless and keep you Chris Henry and RIP you have done your job here on earth.

and let me add. if i was in love with a man which i am... and we are due to get married. and he jumps in the back of my truck and i am so-called "in fear for my life" and he had a broken arm there is no way that i would be speeding on a curvy road even while he is beggin me to stop so we could talk.

Let me tell you all something i knew chris... he was dating my sister since high school and continued once he made it into the nfl. they have a child together named denayla henry. and chris was a very good person. he had a big heart. i know that he did not jump. he lived with us for a period of 5 years and no one knows him better than i (we)did not even loleini. let me tell you guys something. on a serious note. if you are jumping out of a moving object what is your first reaction due to reflexes. take cover for your head right. block your dome. he had no marks/bruises on arms or forearm. HE WAS THROWN OUT OF THE BACK OF THAT TRUCK. my sister stuck through his hard times troubled times and good times. until this bitch loleini came along. now my niece has to grow up not even gettin the chance to know her father. i love chris and always will. he would have never let his life go because of some girl. or wedding.

Bitch let me tell u something you are a fucking lier!! I know your bitchass sister personally and know that her sorry ass never dated Chris since high school!! Chris only dated her for 2 years in high school and then broke up with her! He only wanted the bitch for sex! Krystal's ass never continued to to dated Chris after high school and once he made it to the nfl bitch!! And everyone around Chris knows that so called child of hers wasn't even by Chris you silly ho! Also Chris never lived with you are your family bitch!! If he was still allegedly was still dating Krystal after high school until he made it until the nfl then why was he in a relationship with my sister? So my point is that he never dated Krystal from high school until he made it as an nfl player and that your using Chris's fame so that u and Krystal can be notice but no one cares about u or her sorry ass! Also Krystal never was there for Chris through his hard times, troubled times, or through his good times bitch my sister was the one who did that!! So stop lieing bitch because nobody cares about you or your bitch ass sister!! I will always love you Chris!!! Fuck Krystal Denae, Kayla Gaines, & Loleini Tonga!! They are all fake ass bitches!! Chris only deserved my sister not Krystal or Loleini fake asses!!

@ Kayla

First of let me tell you something you are a damn lier about how long Chris had supposedly been with your sister! I know your sister personally and I knew Chris personally and know that Chris had only been with her in high school and then he broke up with her after graduating! She was never with him after that nor had a child by him! I know this because I'm from his hometown in louisiana originally and moved from there after high school and Chris was my best friend and was like a brother to me! He told me that they were never together after high school and she was never around either! Also he dated a very close friend of mine who I also call my bestfriend and whose like a sister to me for several years and was engaged to her and had a daughter wIth her until lolieni's ugly ass broke them up! So you need to stop lying about your sister so called relationship with Chris from high school years until Chris got into the league because that didn't happen and you know it! Get a life and a damn clue bitch!

@kayla first of all I know your sister personally and know that you are lying about how long that she and Chris were together! I'm Chris's ex fiancée and the mother of our daughter before he allegedly got lolieni ugly ass. Chris and I had been together since our college days until loleini's ugly ass broke us up! Chris broke up with your sister after they graduated from high school and she was not there for him all the time like you claim she was! And she was just as crazy like lolieni bitch ass is! So you need to stop taking on your sister's battles for her and grow up! And another thing is he never lived with y'all either at any giving time nor did he have a child with her at all! I will always love Chris and I know that he would have never killed himself over leini's ugly ass or over a supposed wedding to her when he wasn't even engaged to the ugly bitch in the first place!

Rest in peace dear brother, Chris Henry.

There is obviously a whole lot more to this story...and, I'm not sure if we will ever know the whole truth. Has anyone heard about insurance $ or if she already had control or access to his finances? I'm surprised his family or agent haven't said anything about this. I just think its been a little too quiet. Yes, it was an accident, but I agree with everyone else, why didn't she just stop the truck! She could have taken off walking or running. She knew he had a temper. Is she that much of a brat???? If what TMZ is reporting is true, I don't blame him for questioning the $ being spent on a wedding. Especially since he was likely footing the entire bill.

If Chris was not black she would be sitting in jail or atleast given a ticket.
