Giants star Amani Toomer is splitting with his wife, claiming she not only reneged on a pact to have kids with the veteran wide receiver but went so far as to abort four pregnancies, according to bombshell court papers.

Toomer has sued to annul his marriage to Dr. Yola Dabrowski, who won't get a dime if a judge upholds Toomer's argument that she committed "fraud" when they wed. She is seeking a divorce.

The divorce trial is set to begin tomorrow in Hudson County, N.J., Family Court.

Toomer, 32, alleges his wife refused to have the "big family" they had discussed before getting hitched in a Las Vegas civil ceremony in October 2002.

Toomer, who missed much of last season with a knee injury, is in the middle of a $20 million, five-year contract with the Giants.

Saying "all he ever wanted was for [Yola] to love and respect him," Toomer's filings also include claims that his wife:

  • Quit marriage counseling after just two sessions, because she was "tired of lying to therapists."
  • Does not like watching his games, and often ridicules instead of praises his play. She "even had the audacity to poke fun . . . when he made a catch [and] stumbled without being tackled," he alleges. And, she "always chose to travel [on vacations] separate" from him, opting to be alone and meet other people, making Toomer feel "abandoned and unloved."
  • "Has begun smoking" although Toomer "has asthma and it is unhealthy for his profession to be near a smoker."
  • "Basically abandoned" their Toomer Foundation, a charity they set up to help needy kids.
