Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and his wife Ashton have filed for divorce. The two were married in January 2012.
The Seahawks released a statement from Wilson on the issue: “I have made the difficult decision to file for divorce. Clearly, decisions like these don’t come easy. Ashton and I respectfully ask for prayers, understanding and privacy during this difficult time. Moving forward, I will have no further comment on this personal matter.”
Wilson and the former Ashton Meem were married in Richmond, Virginia in January 2012, just a few months before Wilson was selected by the Seahawks in the third round of the 2012 NFL Draft
