Russel Wilson Divorce

Russell Wilson Divorce

Russell Wilson is known for his extreme speed during the game, people often consider his impressive speed a compensation for his relatively short height I.e. 5’11. But All things aside, Russell Wilson certainly made a name for himself in the National football league and is one of the highest paid NFL players.

Russell has been married twice. His first wife was his high school sweetheart Ashton Meem.

Ashton is an year older than Russell. She was studying at St. Catherine’s High School, 5 miles away from Richmond where Russell was that time at Collegiate School. He was very interested in sports and used to play football, baseball, and basketball. They met at that time briefly. Later, somehow destiny played a role and they met again. It was after this that the two started dating each other. Ashton had said in an interview: “We met briefly in high school. Then again at a summer party and after that started seeing each other.”

Later, Ashton left for higher education and the couple continued their long-distance relationship. After completing her education, the duo got engaged in August 2010 and Got married in 2012 at the Country Club of Virginia. In the same year Russell was going through rounds of drafts in the NFL.

Although they seemed happy but their relationship could not last long and in after two years of marriage, in April 2014, Russell announced that he is filing for divorce from Ashton. He said: “Clearly, decisions like these don’t come easy. Ashton and I respectfully ask for prayers, understanding and privacy during this difficult time. Moving forward, I will have no further comment on this personal matter.”

According to reports, the reason Russell filed for the divorce was due to rumours of Ashton allegedly having an affair with Golden Tate, Seahawks wide receiver. Tate adamantly denied these rumors, and even addressed them in a column he wrote for the cauldron.

After the divorce, Meem quietly faded in the background only surfacing once to create a little ripple of controversy when she allegedly threw shade at Ciara's engagement ring on Twitter. While Russell moved on and started dating popular American R&B singer Ciara. After months of dating, the couple got engaged on March 11, 2016, followed by their wedding on July 6, 2016, at the Peckforton Castle in Cheshire, England. The couple also had a baby girl, Sienna Princess Wilson (born on April 28,2017).
