Although not so much is known about their dating history, their relationship became a media concern in December 2014 when it was reported that then 20-year-old Espinal had been a victim of battery and assault at the hands of her own boyfriend. She was a month pregnant at the time of the incident.

In a police report dated December 12, 2014, an argument had broken out between the lovers and Mill reportedly flung Espinal around like a ragdoll, punched her in the face a couple of times, sat on her and repeatedly punched her on the stomach, held her neck to strangle and choke her. In a quick move, the Oklahoma State dismissed Mill from its football team and dissociated itself from the player; who was already facing charges at the time.

After several pieces of evidence were brought against him, Hill finally pleaded guilty to domestic assault and battery by strangulation. The court sentenced him to a three-year probation, an anger-management course, and a year-long program for batterers. The player was also mandated to undergo a domestic-abuse evaluation course.
