Long before his 2016 fairytale wedding to singer Ciara, Russell Wilson married and divorced someone else. The same year Wilson was drafted into the NFL, he married singer and model Ashton Meem. The couple were married for two years before announcing their divorce in 2014, amid speculation of cheating and betrayal.
In a statement to the Seattle Times, Wilson said, “Ashton and I respectfully ask for prayers, understanding and privacy during this difficult time. In the future, I will have no further comment on this personal matter. Although the statement sounded friendly, rumors began to spread that trouble was brewing in the Seattle Seahawks locker room.
His teammate Golden Tate was accused of having an affair with Meem, which he vehemently denied. When Tate then left the Seahawks, it only fueled the fire. Wilson never commented on the chatter, which only seemed to irritate Tate. ” [The infidelity rumors] are a bunch of bulls**t, and it’s sad that [Wilson] let this continue,” Tate told TMZ. Meem has also not publicly addressed the rumors and, to date, has not remarried.
