Another Day Another Athlete Caught Out There, Chicago Cubs Shortstop Blasted By Wife
These athletes stay effin up. Melisa Russell, the wife of Chicago Cubs shortstop Addison Russell is declaring her independence and blasting him as a disrespectful cheater. Melisa, who has one chid with Addison and helps him care for another child from a previous relationship, posted on Instagram:
Being free to be able to make your own choices for your own happiness beats being cheated on, lied to, & disrespected any day. #herestonewbeginnings #onlygetsbetterfromhere
Melisa and Addison married last June, less than a year after he was called up from the minors to play for the Cubs.
While Melisa didn’t go into full detail about what exactly happened, according to Larry Brown Sports, a friend of hers left an Instagram message alleging that Addison had put paws on his wife… in front of the kids!!!
Melisa turned comments off on the Instagram post but she further explained her message on Twitter.
Russell did not play in the Cubs Wednesday night game against the Marlins and has not commented about his wife’s messages publicly. His Twitter photo is a snapshot of him and Melisa and his bio reads “Father, Husband, ball player for the Chicago Cubs.”
