Tiki says he was separated from his wife when he and the intern took it to the next level.Former NFL Star Tiki Barber made headlines last month when it was reported he left his pregnant wife for a 23 year old intern on The Today Show. Can you imagine how his wife felt at the time? I can’t..
Anyway Tiki and his new girlfriend (who currently lives with him) went on Entertainment Tonight to set the record straight. According to their story, Tiki and his wife had separated before they hooked up. Here’s some excerpts:
Tiki: “We were only friends when I was still married, I was separated, out of my house so it wasn’t until then that we took things to the next level.”
Traci: “Tiki and I were romantically involved when he was separated, and plenty of people who are separated have boyfriends and girlfriends.”
Tiki: “My goal is to not have the kids suffer because of the failings of mine and my soon to be ex-wife. Marriages dissolve. It happens! I’m just a normal guy who had a job that people cared about, and maybe there is a standard to live up to that but it’s a hard one, for anyone.”
