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.
Prior to this, we had already posted about Ezekiel Elliott’s girlfriend Leeanne Hurster. We’d even wondered aloud if they were married. Clearly they were not, and clearly Mr. Elliott has got some problems on his plate. Those problems may very well run into NFL scrutiny as the rookie is now under control of the shield. Ezekiel Elliott’s ex-girlfriend will very likely not be returning to the relationship. A guy working for Elliott’s agency told TMZ that he could assure them the allegations were not true.
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.
