What to know about the Pasco influencer suing Miami Dolphins’ Tyreek Hill

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Tyreek Hill has been accused in a lawsuit of fracturing the leg of Pasco County-based social media influencer Sophie Hall, according to a complaint filed in Broward County.

Hall, a model with more than 2 million Instagram followers, filed the lawsuit last Friday, according the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. The complaint alleges Hill charged at Hall in retaliation after she pushed him back during a practice football play at his Fort Lauderdale home.

“Unfortunately, after getting ‘humiliated’ in front of friends and family when he was knocked backwards during a friendly football lesson by his friend Sophie Hall, Tyreek became enraged, and forcefully and purposefully shoved Ms. Hall, severely fracturing her leg,” the complaint states.

The Tampa Bay Times was not able to reach Hall at multiple numbers listed under her name on Thursday.

Jonathan Gdanski, Hall’s Fort Lauderdale lawyer, said in a phone call Thursday that the seriousness of the allegations in the complaint speak for themselves and that he had no other comment.

Here’s what to know about Hall, the local influencer embroiled in the suit.

Who is Sophie Hall?

Hall, 34, is a social media influencer who posts regularly on TikTok and YouTube, under the usernames “Sophies Selfies.”

Hall’s Instragram bio describes her as an “Americanized Brit.” In her YouTube bio, she is described as a “6′1 250 lbs model and mom.” Indure, a talent management agency based in Miami, represents Hall, according to the agency’s website.

Much of Hall’s content is centered around fashion, modeling and her daily life. She has a recurring segment on her YouTube called “indulge with Sophie” where she cooks in front of the camera. Also linked on Hall’s Twitter account is a link to her OnlyFans account, where subscribers pay a monthly fee to access content.

How is she connected to Tampa Bay?

Hall lives in New Port Richey, according to her public Facebook account. The account states she is originally from Newbury, a town in West Berkshire, England, more than 20 miles south of Oxford.

In the lawsuit filed in Broward County, Hall’s name is listed as “Sophie E. Hall.” Pasco County records for a “Sophie Eloise Hall” date back to at least 2011.

Multiple Instagram photos show Hall out in popular areas of Tampa, like Hyde Park and Midtown.

More on the lawsuit

According to the complaint, in May 2023 Hall bought a ticket for her 10-year-old son to attend “Tyreek Hill Football Camp” at Boca Raton High School. Screenshots included in the lawsuit show Hill messaged Hall on Instagram in a “flirtatious and playful manner” after she purchased the ticket.

Hill, who was engaged to Keeta Vaccaro at the time, allegedly asked Hall to come to the camp a day early and to stay at his Southwest Ranches home, an area in Fort Lauderdale, after the camp was over, according to New York Daily News. The lawsuit states Hill paid for Hall’s travel expenses to get to the home.

On June 28, Hall was at Hills’ home when he asked her to “participate in offensive line drills with him,” according to the complaint. The complaint alleges Hill asked her to do an offense versus defense drill in which Hill charged at her after she’d embarrassed him earlier.

The complaint states Hall sustained a leg fracture that needed surgery and that the injury continues to cause her pain.

A TikTok video from August shows Hall on crutches. In another from around the same time, she shows one of her legs in a brace.

Hall is suing Hill for battery, assault, intentional infliction of emotional distress and negligence. The lawsuit seeks $50,000 in damages.
