Russell Wilson divorcing wife of two years


Geesh, you win a Super Bowl and now you’re dumping your wife.

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is now a big time NFL quarterback when only two years ago he was just another rookie QB trying to get noticed. Things have changed greatly for Wilson, including his opportunities with the ladies.

We kid, as we don’t know the nature of his relationship with his soon-to-be ex-wife Ashton, but one thing’s for sure – they’re calling it quits after two years… He even had the Seahawks front office release a statement about his non-football related news (weird, just weird):

“I have made the difficult decision to file for divorce,” Wilson 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 matter.”

Per John Breech, CBS Sports: ‘ The couple met in high school, then had a long-distance relationship while Wilson was at North Carolina State and Ashton was at the University of Georgia. They were engaged in August 2010, just five months before Wilson transfered to Wisconsin. ‘
