As one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL today, Russell Wilson has been in the spotlight of the media for quite some time. He’s only been in the league for two years, but he is one of the biggest names in the game, even having won a Super Bowl with the Seattle Seahawks this past season.
Not everything is perfect for the QB, as his love life just got a bit more complicated on Wednesday afternoon.
According to reports, Wilson has filed for divorce from his wife, Ashton. The two married in January of 2012 and had been together for a little over two years. This seems a bit odd as the two were known to accompany each other at children’s hospitals and visit sick kids looking for a smile.

Wilson is also very religious, raising the question of infidelity in the relationship. We could sit here and speculate all day long, but the bottom line is that this is a devastating blow in his life plan and it’s not something easy to get over.
This comes as a shock to everyone who knew anything about the couple because they seemed so happy together. Hopefully the star quarterback can put this behind him and move on.
Since being drafted in 2012, Wilson has started every game, accounting for 6,475 yards and 52 touchdowns. Those stats can’t mend a broken heart, however.
