Tiki Barber is now coming out with the ‘reason’ why he’s low-balling Ginny Cha in divorce court…cry us a river, buddy:
Tiki Barber is claiming he’s broke and unable to pay the divorce settlement demanded by the mother of his four children after he was axed from the “Today” show.
The troubled former Giants superstar — who ditched his wife of 11 years, Ginny, for 23-year-old blond former NBC intern Traci Lynn Johnson — claims his career is in tatters and that he’s taken a huge financial hit since his estimated $300,000 network contract ended. One source said, “The show didn’t want to be seen to end their deal with Tiki over the divorce, but there was a morality clause [in his contract], which said that any scandals that could affect his standing with viewers could end his deal.”
The furor over the split also prompted Barber to cancel a series of promotional events for his new indoor cycling gym Flywheel, which he has heavily invested in, with two locations opening in Manhattan earlier this year. A different source told us, “Tiki’s career has taken a serious hit because of this scandal. He could have handled everything in a much better way.”
Poor thang. We bet he’s not too broke to buy that lil blonde thang of his extravagent gifts though. Dirty dog.
