Swirl Gone Wrong: NFLer Embroiled In Nasty Split From Ex-Wife
Robert Griffin III has lashed out at his ex-wife for complaining to the judge that he hasn’t paid what he owes her in their acrimonious divorce.
The NFL free agent – who just welcomed a baby with new fiance Grete Sadeiko – said in court papers that his former spouse needed to hold her horses when it came expecting the money he owes her as part of their divorce.
Last month, Griffin’s spurned ex Rebecca Liddicoat filed court docs complaining to the judge that it was improper to OK their divorce deal because Griffin still owed her a ton of money. The judge based their divorce deal on a premarital agreement that the pair signed before they married in 2013, and Liddicoat said Griffin was supposed to pay her 50 percent of the fair market value of their Montgomery, Tx mansion – which the pair purchased last year for $2.2 million – but she said he still hasn’t coughed up one red cent.
But Griffin fired back July 10, and said that he’s waiting on an appraiser to put a dollar amount on the home’s worth. The former Washington Redskins player said the appraiser has been very busy, and the complexity of the home’s appraisal means that they’ve been put on a waiting list. But he said he has every intention of paying Liddicoat her share of the home’s value, but said she has to be patient.
The unemployed mom of one said that Griffin has been tight fisted with her in the past, cutting off her credit cards even though she needs $36,000 a month to maintain herself, their toddler daughter Reese, and two homes in Texas and Virginia.
College sweethearts Griffin and Liddicoat were married for three years. Griffin filed for divorce last year, claiming that the marriage had been irretrievably broken, and there was no chance that they’d ever get back together.
A judge has yet to rule on whether to force Griffin to pay up ASAP.
