Former NFL star Lawrence Taylor has lost a bid to keep the media out of a dispute between him and the mother of his child.

A judge in New Jersey on Friday denied Taylor's request to bar reporters from future hearings in the child support case involving Taylor and Ebony Washington.

Taylor's attorney James Key argued that Taylor wasn't behind on payments and the dispute was over Taylor's attempt to reduce his payments.

Key cited news coverage that referred to Taylor, a former linebacker, as a "sleazy sack king."

In January, Taylor was sentenced to six years' probation after he admitted paying a 16-year-old runaway for sex.

Taylor led the New York Giants to Super Bowl titles in 1987 and 1991.
