For a player this young, Ezekiel Elliot’s girlfriend history has brought plenty of attention to it. Let’s dive right in.
Ezekiel Elliot’s girlfriend Halle Woodard
Ezekiel Elliott’s girlfriend Halle Woodard first appeared in a post by Terez Owens. Halle is a nursing student who lives in Dallas. This post also highlighted his new girlfriend “made quite an impression” on his mother. During Zeke’s six-game suspension, Halle met the mom. The post says Halle spends a lot of time with Ezekiel. Halle herself says she tries to surround herself with inspiring people. She says she tries to learn new things. Speaking of new things to learn about…..
Zeke Elliott’s girlfriend does not yet appear on his social media timeline. However, Halle does appear on Ezekiel’s mother’s social media. They celebrated Halle’s birthday together.

Ezekiel Elliot’s girlfriend Tiffany Thompson
Another day, another NFL blemish. This time, Ezekiel Thompson’s ex-girlfriend is claiming he beat her up a bunch of times. Tiffany Thompson has put pictures of the bruises on Twitter to back up the claim. As we’ve seen before, the NFL seems to see a new domestic violence incident every few weeks. In this iteration, Tiffany called the police in Columbus, Ohio after a spat with Elliott.
There was no arrest, but Ezekiel Elliott’s ex-girlfriend Tiffany went straight to social media to write a lengthy post about how women in abusive relationships need to get out. Tiffany said:
“This has been happening to me for months and it finally got out of control to where I was picked up and thrown across the room by my arms. Thrown into walls. Being choked to where I had to gasp for breath.”
She then calls on women in these kinds of relationships to step away from their abusers.
Tiffany has since deleted the posts with the pictures of her bruises. She has also turned her social media private. Thinking out loud, it’s entirely possible that Thompson and Elliot may settle financially quickly. As we’ve seen before, settlements have previously bought settle quickly to ensure things stay quiet in the future. We’re not going to speculate on the future of this matter, but I’ll be curious to see if Elliott addresses it publicly. I’m fairly certain that would only happen if the Dallas Cowboys started to make a huff about it. That’s just how these things go.
Yes,… the suspension
By now, we should probably address it. Yes. The six game suspension. The NFL suspended Elliott on allegations of domestic abuse. But, it’s worth noting no criminal charges were filed. On August 14, both The Daily Mail and The Dallas Star Telegram posted details behind the suspension. According to those reports, Elliott claimed Thompson threatened to ruin his career. On September 1, 2017 TMZ released a post that explained the NFL investigation that surrounded the alleged abuse. In that post, Elliot said they were never in a relationship. He also added that she was never his girlfriend. However according to the investigation Elliott told Thompson that he wanted to marry her and that he loved her. Which account is true? Is neither wholly accurate? At this point, can we ever know?
On September 1, SportsDay also reported that the NFLPA filed a suit against the NFL. The league arbitrator Harold Henderson was also named. The lawsuit is viewable online and also contains the original investigation conducted by the NFL. What does Ezekiel Elliott’s girlfriend think of all this? SB Nation posted a timeline of all the pertinent incidents in the domestic violence case. According to that timeline, there were several instances of violence, but the descriptions apparently appeared confusing because Thompson gave several variations of them.
Ezekiel Elliot’s girlfriend Leanne Hurster
Way back in 2015, there was a bit of very hasty reporting by that Ezekiel Elliott’s wife is Leeanne Hurster. Even then it was clear that at best she was Ezekiel Elliot’s girlfriend, but even that looked like a stretch. 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.
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.
