Seahawks Russell Wilson Heading For Divorce -blogged by @eleven8 – After just writing a blog about "Day 1" women not being appreciated once a man becomes successful, Russell Wilson has proved my point. Wilson and his wife Ashton Meem-Wilson were high school sweethearts in Virginia. Ashton followed Wilson to North Carolina State where they attended college before Wilson completed school in Wisconsin. The couple finally wed in January 2012, before he was drafted to the Seattle Seahawks and before they won the Super Bowl this year. Wilson has been considered a severely underpaid QB and rumor has it the Seahawks are about to pay him what they owe in a major way. So what does a man do when he's about to get paid big time? That's right! Give his wife the boot! Word is Wilson has been seen partying with models and he and his wife haven't really been seen together since he won the Super Bowl. ……..to read the rest log on to BallerAlert.com (clickable link on profile) #Seahawks #RussellWilson #divorce #AshtonMeemWilson #readmore #logon
The Net Worth of an NFL Player’s Ex-Wife
How rich is Ashton Meem? As of early-2018, sources inform us of a net worth that is at $4 million, earned through success in her numerous endeavors working in various fields, but also increased significantly through her marriage to and divorce from Russell Wilson. As she continues her efforts, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.
Life Before Marriage
Ashton attended Collegiate School located in Richmond, and during her time there would meet Russell Wilson. They became close friends and would stay together through various schools as they continued their education. After matriculating, she attended the University of Georgia and graduated with a degree in advertising, then furthering her studies at North Carolina State University with a degree in communications in 2010.
She then began her career in business as a part of the Lewis Media Partner, serving as the company’s secretary. She then worked as a part of Morton Consulting LLC for several years as an account executive, before joining American Family Insurance as an advertising assistant.
A Long Friendship and Short Marriage – Marriage and Divorce
Meem was in a relationship for a long time with Wilson, having been together throughout their high school and college days. In 2010, the couple became engaged, and they tied the knot two years later with the wedding held at the Country Club of Virginia. Just a few months after marriage, her husband was selected by the Seattle Seahawks during the NFL draft, but Ashton was already in the spotlight prior to the draft due to her association with the high profile football player. She also made her way to an appearance as a part of a show on ESPN.
However, just two years after their marriage, Russell suddenly filed for divorce from his wife, apparently due in part to rumors spreading that she started having a relationship with former Seattle Seahawks player Golden Tate a claim she later denied, as did Tate, saying that he had nothing to do with the divorce. Despite the rumors and news around their marriage as well as their divorce, they mentioned in interviews that they remain good friends. She later said that Wilson knows that the rumors damaging her reputation aren’t true
After the Marriage
Ashton has not been known to be in any new relationship since divorcing Russell Wilson. He on the other hand started a relationship with singer Ciara, and they eventually announced their engagement, not taken lightly by Ashton as she went on to allegedly throw some words onto Ciara’s engagement ring picture on social media.
