RGII Is Getting Divorced & Already Has Tattoo Of New Girlfriend’s Full Name
August 17 / Tanya Ray Fox / SportsGrid
Cleveland quarterback Robert Griffin III has had a tumultuous tenure in the NFL since being drafted 2nd overall in 2012. After dealing with severe injury issues that prohibited him from reaching his potential with Washington, he has a chance for a new start this year with the Browns; and as it turns out, he's making drastic changes in his personal life as well.
On Tuesday, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reported that Griffin has been separated from his wife of three years, the former Rebecca Liddicoat, for the past several months. Cabot's source told her that he is now in the process of filing for divorce. The couple got married in July of 2013 and had their daughter, Reese Ann Griffin, in May of 2015.
So obviously this did not turn out to the marriage that Griffin envisioned. It happens; especially with professional athletes. But professional athletes are also known for never staying single too long, so you better believe he had a hot new thing already in the works. He and Estonian-born Florida State heptathlete Grete Sadeiko have been putting out little hints on social media for about a month now, but on Wednesday TMZ released a photo of the two holding hands in their first official display of PDA.
Now this may be their official coming out as a couple, but in turns out that the relationship was already written in ink right on RGIII's arm. That's where he tattooed his 23-year-old girlfriend's entire name. The whole thing. Not just Grete. Her full, given name.
TMZ's sources told them that the the new couple hit up a tattoo parlor in Cleveland last month and that they each got a new tattoo. Sadeiko apparently has photos on her Instagram that show words inked on the inside of her forearm, but both her Instagram and Twitter accounts have now been set to private. Which I have to say is an interesting privacy tactic for a woman who allowed her entire name to be tattooed on her famous, still-married boyfriend's arm.
Seriously, who does that? Was the first name not enough? Did he previously date a girl named Grete and not want them to be confused? Adding in the surname makes it a little too formal for my taste. But to each his own. I just hope for his sake that they don't break up too soon, because he made it a lot harder to get that thing covered up. This is no easy "Wino Forever" fix.
