Russell Wilson and Ashton Meem’s Divorce: The Whole Story!

Russell Carrington Wilson (born November 29, 1988) is the Denver Broncos quarterback (NFL). He played football and baseball at NC State from 2008 to 2010 before moving to Wisconsin in 2011.

He established the single-season FBS record for passing efficiency (191.8) and led them to the 2012 Rose Bowl. In 2010, he played second base for the Tri-City Dust Devils and Asheville Tourists. His baseball rights are controlled by the Somerset Patriots, the Yankees’ Double-A club.

Russell Wilson and Ashton Meem’s Wedding

Early in the millennium, Ashton Meem and Wilson were first introduced as young adults.

Meem stated in the Richmond Times-2012 Dispatch’s wedding announcement, “We briefly met in high school.” The couple started dating and kept a long-distance relationship while in college. “Then again at a summer party and after that resumed seeing one other.”

To be nearer to Wilson, Meem transferred from the University of Georgia to NC State. Her boyfriend transferred to play football for the University of Wisconsin a year after she finished.

Wilson planned a surprise stay in the Presidential Suite of a posh hotel in Cary, North Carolina, on August 1, 2010. He proposed to Meem there while their dog Penny watched from the sidelines. Wilson explains that although her parents waited outside to congratulate her, “I had arranged for everyone in the foyer to remain silent.”

At the Country Club of Virginia on January 14, 2012, the couple was wed in front of 300 guests. The marriage ceremony coincided with Wilson’s NFL training at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida, thus a honeymoon was postponed.

In 2014, Ashton and Russell Divorced.

Meem and Wilson enjoyed a wonderful honeymoon week. Wilson was chosen by the Seattle Seahawks in the third round of the 2012 NFL Draft, three months after they had gotten married. He inked a $4 million, four-year deal two weeks later.

But in the background, their voyage ultimately ran into some difficulties. Wilson started the divorce process in April 2014. He gave the following comment through Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times:

“I have decided to file for divorce, which was a difficult decision. These are obviously not simple choices. In this trying time, Ashton and I sincerely need your prayers, consideration, and privacy. I won’t be commenting further on this personal topic going ahead.

Was the divorce brought on by Ashton’s affair with Golden Tate, a teammate of Russell’s?
Following the revelation of Wilson and Meem’s split, speculation arose as to the reasons why.

Meem allegedly cheated on her husband with his then-teammate Golden Tate, according to a well-known idea. During the week before the 2014 Super Bowl, Percy Harvin, another former Seahawk, allegedly punched Tate over the incident.

In a lengthy personal essay that was published on The Cauldron, Tate responded to the accusations. He stated:

I did not have an affair with Russell Wilson’s wife, nor did I have anything to do with his divorce. That is laughable for anyone who knows us. His ex-wife, Ashton, is still best friends with my girlfriend. Russell and I were good friends when I was in Seattle, on and off the field — he knows the rumors about me were unfounded, damaging to my reputation, and an attack on my character. Anyone who circulated that rumor was just plain irresponsible.
