WASHINGTON — As long as this story keeps getting weirder, it will continue being news.
And it keeps getting weirder.
On Tuesday, reports emerged that Robert Griffin III was in the process of filing for divorce.
On Wednesday, it was revealed that Griffin had evidently already gotten himself into a new relationship. The girl he’s reportedly dating, Florida State heptathlete Grete Sadeiko, made her Twitter account private after the rumors began circulating. Before she did so, there were many tweets that seemed to reference Griffin, and he had liked more than a half-dozen of her tweets.
Wednesday night, details on Griffin’s relationship with his wife, Rebecca Liddicoat, were revealed by TMZ.
TMZ suggests Griffin and Liddicoat separated because of the quarterback’s relationship with Sadeiko, rather than the new relationship coming about as a result of the split. Apparently, Griffin met the heptathlete through Instagram in January, then the relationship became real. At some point “shortly after” that, Griffin and Liddicoat split.
Griffin’s relationship with Sadeiko appears to have intensified since, and pictures of the two athletes together in public have emerged.
What’s more, Liddicoat was reportedly keen on rekindling her relationship with the Cleveland Browns quarterback, until she learned Griffin was filing for divorce.
Then, of course, there’s that whole issue of him getting Sadeiko’s name tattooed on his arm. That would make for an awkward relationship if Griffin and Liddicoat did patch things up.
