Well now, there’s been a bit of very hasty reporting by terezowens.com that Ezekiel Elliott’s wife is Leeanne Hurster, when in fact we’re pretty sure that Hurster is Ezekiel Elliot’s girlfriend instead. I am extremely skeptical for a number of reasons, but let’s pretend to take Ezekiel at his word for now. If this young 19 year-old did in fact marry Mr. Elliott at some point in 2014, there is no trace of the marriage online, and in this day and age that is very rare– particularly with a fairly high-profile college athlete.
The real issue arises from one innocuous Instagram photo Ezekiel threw up, captioning “Happy Birthday to my BFF/Wife @lkhurster Hope it’s a great one. Love you and miss you. See you soon love.” Now, most sports fans would assume this macho looking fellow is simply expressing his devotion to his wife, but I have a sneaky suspicion that they are in fact just dating, and that his calling her a “wife” and “best friend forever” is merely a term of endearment, not literal here folks. You see women use these terms all the time between one another and it’s just a way to express a deep bond and friendship.
Either way, Ezekiel Elliot’s “wife” Leeanne Hurster has known him for a long time. He’s also called Leeanne his “wifey,” which seems very out of character if they’re actually married. Again, the term seems very clearly to be one of friendship, and I don’t think he means it literally. There’s also a high school photograph of Ezekiel laying on a couch with another woman sound asleep on his shoulder, and the caption reads “me and my baby.” That is the type of term you use with a significant other. I could be wrong though.
The two of them went to high school together at John Burroughs High School in St. Louis. They’ve also been to a formal occasion (presumably a dance or prom), as they’ve been photographed in a dress and tuxedo. The tuition for John Burroughs High School (a private school) in 2013 was a little over $23,000. That’s some pretty serious high school cash. It turned out to be a nice investment, I suppose.
