Russell Wilson, probably many of us are aware of American football quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks in NFL. 29-year-old Wilson is the 2015 Pro Bowl Offensive MVP and Super Bowl Champion (XLVIII), however, unlike his successful career, his love life achieved a firmness after his second marriage.

Wilson was previously married to Ashton Meem, but after a contentious divorce, Russell found himself happy with his second wife Ciara and lives happily with her along with his daughter. Let's know more about the couple's relationship, past affairs, married life, and children.

Russell Wilson And Ashton Meem: Marriage and Controversial Divorce

Let's start from the beginning: The beautiful Ashton Meem was attending the Collegiate School in Richmond when her eyes first laid on the handsome footballer Russell Wilson.

Initially, they were just friends, but eventually, they fell in love with each other and started dating. After completing the High School, Ashton moved to Georgia and attended the University of Georgia, but they were still in contact and continued their long-term relationship.

Just after Ashton completed her graduation from North Carolina State University, Russell proposed the blonde beauty and the couple officially got engaged in 2010.

After a couple of years of their engagement, the couple eventually tied the knot on 14 January 2012, in a lavish wedding ceremony at the Country Club of Virginia.

After Ashton's marriage with Russel, she became an overnight sensation and became recognized as the gorgeous wife of the NFL player, Russell Wilson.

However, after two years of their marital relationship, their relation took an unexpected turn as in April 2014, Wilson filed a divorce against his wife.

The reason behind this was the rumors of Meem's extramarital relationship with the former Seahawks player Golden Tate. So, was the rumor true or the relationship became a victim of false rumors?

The rumor was, in fact, baseless and was even addressed by Golden Tate. He said:

I did not have an affair with Russell Wilson’s wife, nor did I have anything to do with his divorce. That is laughable for anyone who knows us.

His ex-wife, Ashton, is still best friends with my girlfriend. Russell and I were good friends when I was in Seattle, on and off the field? He knows the rumors about me were unfounded, damaging to my reputation, and an attack on my character.

Although the story was ultimately denied, Russell and Ashton got divorced in 2014. A sad ending for one of the promising couples.
