Russell Wilson's wife Ashton Wilson (Divorce Announced)

UPDATE 08/25/2014: It's four months later, and we still have absolutely no concrete idea what happened with Russell Wilson's wife Ashton Wilson and why the seemingly happy first family of football in the Pacific Northwest threw in the towel.

Rumors have been flying alleging that a certain departed free agent wide receiver got in between the marriage, but after Golden Tate took to Twitter to deny the rumors no one was accusing him of,... I guess we're supposed to determine those rumors untrue. There are also rumors that the infamous fight on the eve of the Super Bowl took place when Percy Harvin attacked Golden Tate for this alleged affair - but again, those rumors appear unsubstantiated at best, and totally false in all likelihood.

Wilson has handled the situation with grace, by first apologizing to a Seattle Times columnist for the report, and them remaining nothing but positive and level headed on all things marriage divorce and his ex-wife Ashton Meem Wilson.

So what's next for Russell Wilson? We thought we'd be seeing stories about Russell Wilson's girlfriend pop up during the offseason, but to date there's been nothing. With the spotlight shining bright on Seattle's favorite son, we'll keep an eye out for the next woman up.

UPDATE 04/23/2014: In a shocking turn of events, Russell Wilson and wife Ashton Wilson are headed for divorce after just 2 years of marriage.

In an announcement released by the Seahawks, the Super Bowl Champion QB Wilson said "I have made the difficult decision to file for divorce. Clearly, decisions like these don't come easy."

The couple has been together since their high school days and traveled through college and the early days of the NFL together. The Wilson's immediately entrenched themselves in the Seattle community with regular charity work and community endeavors.

We'll keep an eye out for more details as they emerge.

Every year that ESPN broadcasts the NFL draft, it's a safe bet that we're going to see the occasional wife or girlfriend in the green room.
However, after night 2 of the NFL draft, even we were taken aback by the amount of camera time that ESPN dedicated to Wisconsin Quarterback Russell Wilson's wife Ashton Wilson (formerly Ashton Meem).

Russell and Ashton Wilson were married January 14, 2012 at the Country Club of Virginia. They first met in high school, and struck up a long distance relationship after reacquainting at a party the next summer. Ashton Meem left to the University of Georgia before transferring to NC State to be with Russell. After she graduated from NC State, Russell transferred to Wisconsin to raise his draft stock, and make him the Seahawks 3rd round draft pick.

After Ashton graduated NC State, she began a career in the insurance industry in North Carolina. The couple will now be relocating to the Pacific Northwest shortly where I'm sure there are plenty of cubicle gigs available if she so chooses.

01/21/2014: Since arriving in Seattle, Russell and Ashton Wilson have quickly immersed themselves into the community fabric. Ashton is no longer working in the exciting insurance industry, rather striking up a successful new career as an event planner. Both Ashton and Russell are regular visitors to local hospitals cheering up kids with a surprise hello from their hometown QB (honestly, I think most of these kids handle it better than I could at age 32 if my hometown QB Tom Brady came to visit me).

Ashton is eager to tweet support of seemingly all things Americana: supporting the troops, visiting sick kids, loving football, and puppies. In the new age of the NFL this couple has the potential to redefine the family face of the league (probably currently occupied by Drew Brees and his wife Brittany Brees) With Seattle in a great position to win the Super Bowl in two weeks, we have no question that we'll be seeing more of everyone's favorite young family, and very likely on the field celebrating while blue, green and white confetti falls.

    why don't you people marry your own race instead of going after white girls.

  12. 6160

    fuck you haters ! handle your business man.

  13. Kitty

    I am SO happy for the both of you. I have seen your true love and am thrilled to see the wedding pics! Let these haters hate. I know and have seen the strength in both of you individually, but especially together as a couple. All my love and respect-Kitty

  14. Richard

    Um Earl@ it the other way around these girl chase the Athletes and it a smart move on their part when you think about it. This goes all the way back to prep school.

  15. steve

    well he sure didn't marry her for her looks!

  16. LKH

    Wow. I know that hateful, sick and envious people exist in this world but when I see it in a forum like this it makes me feel so fortunate to have the husband, friends and family that I have. I pray for you. What a horribly sad life you must wake up to every morning. Russell Wilson seems like an intelligent and focused guy who has a great future ahead of him. Best of luck to Russell and his lovely bride.

    P.S. I can't believe this site allows people to spew this kind of hatred towards athletes and their loved ones. It's just disgusting.

  17. CC

    Hey Earl,
    we go after your women because the girls of your race don't want people like you.

  18. Doctor Evil

    Russell I know you love Ashston.Best wishes toward you and your wife.Go HAWKS!!!

  19. Bruce

    I just another black man slut! She has the lips of horse and you know what she use them for!!!

  20. Rell

    Your own race? Lol Wilson is mixed his mother is white

  21. JoJo

    Jesus took a major beating. And he warned that anyone who stood in His name could expect to take one too. But, I suspect Russell already knows this. He is a class act, a major talent and an excellent role model.

    What God has brought together, let no man seek to destroy. I wish the couple a long healthy marriage filled with lots of little baby Russells. (FutureQBs lol)

    Keep in mind beauty is skin deep but ugly is to the bone. His wife makes him happy. She is likely his equal in every way. Good hearted and sincere. She loves him and he loves her. That's awesome. God teaches us that the greatest thing there us is love.

  22. thebirdsareback

    Half these sick fucks wouldn't say shit if Russel was in the room with them. As a matter of fact, the only way these idiots can get there disgusting thoughts out are through forums that allow anonymity. Pussies! id crush you if you talked like that around me. Now for mr. wilson and his lovely wife, what a great story. I hope they live a happy life, just dont ever win the superbowl against my RAVENS. Peace

  23. Eric

    My favorite football player and my favorite athlete period. You two make a great couple. I someday would love to meet you both. I live in St Louis. I wish you nothing but love and success !! To Russ and Ashton ,I give you my best !!

    Why everybody busting on his wife's looks?

    True, she aint no supermodel but she aint ugly, neither. Plus, not all black guys like big round fat asses on their women. Russell is just like me --- we prefer the thin white girls with the tight & tiny little butts because we know how good dat ass is gonna look late at night bouncing on our dicks by candlelight, nigga!

  28. Lisa Bennett

    Truly a gorgeous couple inside and out! I wish them a long, happy marriage and life!

    Go Seahawks!

    P.S. You Haters out there spewing nonsense about "marrying your own race" have exposed your parents' preference for marrying their own relatives.

  29. pete

    Mr & Mrs. Wilson.
    I don't know you. but I know something about mixed relationship and the children that comes from them,and I love each one the same being African-American my blood line is mixed as well but the conversation about race last about the same length as it takes to say hi,also we are a family that stands not behind them but side by side,and dare anyone to say something stupid we will have a answer for the but we don't have to defend them they do a dam go job of it themselves.
    We believe that you love who you love,not who somebody else says you should as your wife said live in the moments of right know,don't let lose who you both are just be who you are the rest will take care of its self,and as far as how wife looks as long as you love her to hell with the rest,good luck in life two the both of you.

    At least he isn't as shallow as most of the players that need fake boobs. Those are the ones that marry for money and do the chasing. These two have been together since high school. No one new he would make it to the pros then.

    Why do successful have to settle for white women... the only time white women want black man is when they got money. Fuck them white women...

    Good Luck Ashton and Russell you are a great couple and I wish you the best of luck. Pay no attention to the Idiots.

  34. Jodi Winks

    So I just wanted to say that I admire both you and your wife Russell. It's always great to see you week after week visiting your fans who love and need a boost. Russell I wasn't a football fan at all UNTIL you played for the Badgers. That energy that you create on that football field is electric. The fact that you do whatever it takes to make the play is well from within you but sent from the Almighty. Thank you for being a great role model and not being ashamed of your faith. Stay classy and PLEASE don't read the hater's post. They're jealous.
    Thank you Russell and Ashton.

  35. Seriou

    I believe any person who date outside their race has a mental disorder and suffer with identity crisis and low self esteem. Subconsciously, they believe "other" than what they are is better . It's sad. Also, I believe there is a war on black women. Call it the Michele Obama effect, but white women are being promoted with white women. Look at the television how many white women are hooked up on sitcoms , talk shows, sports, included with white women. Go broncos Peyton knows who he is and is nit ashame of it. Oh by the way. I am black and proud. Male. I love me some black women.

  36. Seriou

    Yeah a lot if white women are hooked up with black men on sitcoms, talk shows, etc

  37. Serious

    The whit men are okay with the white women dating these black men because most of the time the woman outlive the man so the money come back to the white race . All about the almighty dollar

  38. Yolanda

    Not that it matters but for information purpose his mother is black and so is his father.

  39. Tdog

    Just out of curiousity, I looked at the majority of the African American athletes wives/girlfriends on the Seahawks and in some major sports period and I could not help to notice that the majority of them are romantically linked to either white women, black women who are so light that they look white, or women who would be classified as other. Yes. I believe that you should love who you love but I cannot help but to think that there is something going on as to why once African American men get famous or have money, etc, for some reason, they do not look to African American women, especially ones that may be darker toned, as beautiful. It is definitely a quesitons that has been on my mind for a while. If love really was blind, why don't we see white athletes with African American women? What do you think would be said if the majority of famous white athletes would have an African American woman, especially one of a dark hue, on their arm? I just don't think it would be so acceptable. I can't help to think that a lot of African American men just have such low self-esteem problems that they just don't feel successful unless they have someone white or so close to white on their arms. This is not to say that that is true in all cases but it is in most. It's kinda sad.

  40. doc

    The fact that she is white is disappointing to black females like myself but it is reassuring that she knew him before his millions not after. Russell Wilson's parents are both black by the way. This just points to a bigger matter in sports/black community - self hate. In order to have the American "dream" you have to have a nonblack spouse. Why? It does not help that sport teams/agents tell these young impressionable players that in order to get the million dollar endorsement you would be better serve to have a "educated" woman by your side then a ghetto women. Being a doc myself, all black women are not ghetto and we are educated. Stats show that 80% black men marry black women and 72.8 % black male athletes marry black women. Do not believe the media that is further promoting hate. Better if she was a sister but congrats.

  41. SamantaIvy

    What make you people THINK Wilson is 1/2 white? He is 100% Black African-American. Wow...ignorance is bliss.

    His wife isn't pretty at all and she looks much older than she really is. If she makes him happy then be it.

  42. usla mom

    I see nothing wrong with different races getting together. I just feel so bad for black men because they're going to spend their entire lives trying not to feel inferior to white men. They get the fame, money, and status but still feel inadequate until they get them a non- black woman. They have thrown us under the bus and now they want to say we're the reason why they've strayed. But the main person to blame for the interracial explosion is the white man. The white man does not have the ability (size does matter with ww) to satisfy these over sexed women of theirs. White women are so freaky and every time they see a black man they get wet just thinking about one of those Mandingos giving it to them.

  43. Blkisbeautiful

    I was torn with the Superbowl because I love the Manning boys but I thought that Russell was cute and was glad of #40 with the Seahawks. He is deaf & my brother is deaf & was a tremendous athlete in High School. However, I was curious to find out Russell's girlfriend & found he was married. Color is coming into a new light because my son is a college student & an athlete & I found that white girls were attracted to him in high school & college. I love genuine people but it has dug deep to my heart. I want a girl to love him for him not his athletic ability. But I believe also found that for black girls... He had to be cool, hip & with game but he is who he is. I would rather him date someone that resembles his moma... "a strong, black, beautiful queen." The same characteristics his grandmothers posess & be proud of it. I am seeing more black men choosing white woman. Not white men choosing black woman. I just hope it's all genuine because if its not... It won't last. Russell, I pray your lasts.

    A white woman with a poor self image makes him feel successful and not inferior to responsible white men.

    She's waiting to get paid. Just has that look all over her.

  47. Not Impressed

    I really don't have much against those who date & marry out of their race just as long as they are classy about it. Don't go around putting down your race trying to justify why you are with someone out of your race. Just keep it classy and don't put others down. God isn't against it so I can't be either. Wilson's lady was with him from the beginning(even though she looks kinda of greedy but maybe that's me)so they have something to really build a solid marriage on. Unless she dropped back into his life when she knew he was getting drafted in the NFL. In any case it their problem all the best to them. Not all of these black athletes are married to white women and other races. Some people need to get a grip. Seriously.

  48. Not Impressed

    I'll bet guys like Mark Sanchez, Chris, Riley Cooper, Eric Decker, Trent Edwards even has beens like David Carr & Kyle Boller could easily bed & discard these white chicks fooling around with with these black athletes. I'll bet Wilson's & Tate's women are probably lusting after Colin Kaepernick. Just a thought. These black guys come off like a bunch of Othello's waiting to go insane when their white women get tired of them.

  49. Mer

    What if he was gay and dating a WHITE man?!?
    WHO CARES???? Are you going home with them at the end of the day??? Didn't think so.

  50. Sleuth

    The Seahawks announced via Twitter that Russell filed for Divorce. That's sad to hear and I hope they settle things amicably.

  51. Jarmicheal Wiggins

    Black women are ridiculous. They give Black men nothing but grief and games and then when we get some wits and are awakened to our value with other women(not just White but Mexican too)then they get all butthurt. Bitch, y'all had your chance! Seriously. Learn how to treat a man. There's a ton of fine Black women out there...but in looks only. Their attitude is unbearable.

    he's ugly to the bone, with his fake smile and fake Jesus banter.

    She turned out to be a real gold. Digger and cheater. I feel bad for Russell Wilson.He is the perfect buying you have a . Young religious daughter who an handle the lime light.

  54. susan

    everyone is blameing the breakup on tate. what about Ashton?. She was the one that is married!

  55. susan

    Everyone is blaming the divorce on Tate? What about Aston? She is the one that is married! Or should I say divorced. And if Wilson party's a little that doesn't mean he's a bad Christion. How many of us helps young people be happy ?

  56. Misselle

    You people talking about what you think you know about God are uneducated about The Bible. God does not want us to mix with other races. It is written. God is for the Hebrews and their descendants who are the children of Jacob who God later renamed Israel. The Bible tells us that these people were all shades of brown. Jesus Christ was dark brown and we are His children. People who don't read The Bible don't know. I do and I know The Truth. That marriage was not God-blessed and was forbidden. It wasn't supposed to last!
