Seahawks QB Russell Wilson files for divorce from wife of two years
Russell Wilson has filed for divorce from his wife of over two years.
Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has filed for divorce from his wife of over two years, the team announced on Wednesday. Wilson and his wife Ashton were married in January 2012, just three months before Wilson was selected in the third round of the NFL Draft.
In somewhat of an odd move, the Seahawks released a statement on Wilson's behalf (teams don't usually release statements about a player's personal life).
"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."
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 transferred to Wisconsin.
