Terricka Cason Cromartie, while seven months pregnant with their second child, sent her cornerback hubby these heart-stopping texts:
"God forgive me, I don't want to die. What have I done?" and "I cut my wrists. I took those pills."
Cromartie, who was in Miami, frantically called the Randolph Township, N.J., police at 2:43am.
"There's a problem at my house. She's bleeding. She cut her wrists," he told the dispatcher.
When no one answered the bell or phone at the house, cops broke down two doors with an ax and sledgehammer, ran upstairs and found Terricka in bed with her two daughters.
Not a drop of blood in sight.
Terricka confessed she had faked the suicide try because she thought Cromartie — who has 10 kids, including eight with seven other women — was "cheating on her."
"She stated that she had no intention of going through with the act," says a police report on the May 6, 2011 incident. "She said she was exercising her First Amendment right to free speech and could say whatever she wanted."
The jealous wife also admitted sending text messages "to the woman she believes is romantically involved with her husband."
Officers told Terricka she had to undergo a psychiatric evaluation at a local hospital. Terricka objected, saying that a paid driver was coming to take to her to the airport to go to Miami, and that she would be in her sister's wedding that weekend.
She said she had no one to watch her kids, but finally agreed to be hauled off. The state's child-protection agency took temporary care of her daughters, one from a prior relationship and one with Cromartie.
Terricka, 31, tweeted last month that she and the fertile footballer, 28, are expecting twins.
Cromartie rep Fadde Mikhail did not respond to a request for comment.
