Troy and Rhonda Aikman began dating in 1998 (more on that in a minute), and were married on April 8, 2000. Rhonda has a daughter from a previous relationship, and together Troy and Rhonda have two more daughters, born in 2001 and 2002. The couple announced their separation on January 24, 2011.
Before we say anything, I’m giving credit to The Big Lead for finding this and passing it along.
Rhonda Aikman was working as a publicist for the Cowboys when they met in 98. Apparently, she was dating someone else. We’ll let Bart Hubbuch of the NY Post continue the story from there in a series of three tweets:
“Little story: I covered the #Cowboys in ’98 when a certain QB’s soon-to-be-ex-wife was a team PR secretary engaged to a team accountant …”
” … certain QB lured team PR secretary away, she gave ring back to team accountant, who then challenged QB to a fight in the parking lot …”
“… high-ranking team official heard of planned fisticuffs and team accountant was fired. Secretary soon “retired” with a huge new ring …”
When later asked about the validity of this story, Hubbard responded:
“Every word of it true. Saw some of it with my own eyes. The accountant literally wanted to kill the QB in question.”
