ESPN analyst shaded ex-Russell Wilson during NFL draft

Russell Wilson

The New York Post reported that ESPN analyst Emmanuel Acho cast some shadow on the ex-wife of NFL star Russell Wilson, Ashton Meem. Considering the fact that his last name is ‘Meem’, it was almost inevitable that he would be the subject of a meme or two in his life, but this one was quite wild.

Acho to the current two photos, one with Wilson and Meem and another with Ciara Wilson and his wife, who is pregnant with their second child together. Along with the side-by-side images, she wrote: “As we prepare for Day 2 of #NFLDraft, the brides remember to play well. It is not where you start, it is where you end ».

Meem and Wilson were high school boyfriends, according to the Daily Mail . She was by his side during the 2012 NFL draft when he was selected by the Seattle Seahawks. They were married that same year and finally divorced in 2014.

An adventure could have led to Russell Wilson’s divorce

In April 2014, Russell Wilson announced his separation from then-wife Ashton Meem on ESPN . The two remained silent about the circumstances surrounding their breakup. However, there were rumors that Meem had an affair with Golden Tate, another Seattle Seahawk, who denied it many times. In 2015, he wrote a column for The Cauldron to crush the rumors. He said, “I did not have an affair with Russell Wilson’s wife, nor did I have anything to do with his divorce.” He even put the word “no” in italics and bold.

Tate emphasized, “That is ridiculous to anyone who knows us. His ex-wife, Ashton, is still my girlfriend’s best friend. Russell and I were good friends when he was in Seattle, on and off the field, he knows the rumors. on me they were unfounded, they damaged my reputation and an attack on my character. No one who circulated that rumor was simply irresponsible. ”

In Tate’s eyes, Wilson should have ended the rumor of the matter. Instead, he said absolutely nothing. In 2015, Tate criticized Wilson’s silence as “a bunch of bulls ** t”, recounting TMZ “It’s sad that he’s letting this continue.” Wilson hasn’t commented yet, but in 2015 CBS Sports told him , “I’ve been through some heartache. I married the person I was in high school with… that didn’t work, unfortunately. I just trusted that God would do the healing process. He had been through ups and downs.

Russell Wilson is happily married to Ciara

In 2015 Russell Wilson and Ciara went public with their relationship. That year, CBS Sports reported on a talk he gave to The Rock Church, revealing his promise to refrain from having sex. She claimed that God said, “I need you to guide her,” and that’s when Wilson asked Ciara, “What would you do if we took all those extra things off the table and did it the way Jesus did? »She agreed and they continued their relationship, with much shadow from his ex-wife Ashton Meem and his ex-fiancé Future.

Wilson proposed to Ciara in March 2016. Meem did not comment, but International Business Times reported that she changed her Twitter profile picture to a photo with her engagement ring emphasized. Fun fact: She still uses her married name on the platform.

Wilson and Ciara were married in July 2016, leaving celibacy behind and almost immediately conceiving a child. In April 2017, Ciara gave birth to a girl named Sienna. Ciara already had a child from her relationship with Future. In January 2024, the Seahawk announced that they were expecting the “number three” boy in a Peep . On April 14, 2024, Ciara shared a video of her low-key reveal gender celebration. They discovered that they are expecting a child.

The world “met” Meem when a photo of her went viral from that 2012 draft, so hopefully she has developed tough skin from that experience. While Ciara was not next to Wilson when he was drafted, they have made many memories in their new life together.
