Meem was born on 6th September 1987 in Richmond, Virginia. The 30-year-old has a degree in B.A from NC State. Apart from the fame, she received as the wife of the quarterback, there is not really much when it comes to her personal life and professional life.

Nonetheless, here we are going to share some information about Ashton Meem's current relationship, her marital life and harsh split with ex-husband Russell Wilson.

In fact, she has gone completely underground and sources claim that she is working at an American Family Insurance Company.

Speaking of her current love life and if she has moved on, it seems that she is having a hard time to do so. Initially, she did not even change her last name on her Twitter page but as of now, her account has been deleted.
No reports have surfaced claiming that she is married to dating a new man so, it is safe to say that she is currently single and having a hard time moving on not only from her ex-husband but also from the life of a star-struck wife to a normal person.
Or she might just be trying to focus on her career and make the best of what she has.
Ashton met Russell back when they were both in high school. Even though they did not study in the same school, their paths crossed anyways. They met a few times on the way and during parties and eventually started dating in 2006.

Eventually, in 2014, Russell Wilson announced that he was filing for divorce which shocked everyone and somehow proved that Meem cheated on him. The divorce was harsh for the couple who were together from a very young age.
Following the divorce, Tate spoke on the rumor and shared that Meem and his now fiance were best friends and it never would happen. He quoted:
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. Anyone who circulated that rumor was just plain irresponsible.
