Seahawks Russell Wilson Wife Ashton Divorce: Cheating Golden Tate Caused Breakup? [RUMORS]

By Drew Jacobs on May 03, 2014 10:55 AM EDT

The Seahawks Russell Wilson has been having a pretty rough few weeks. Not only did his wife, Ashton, file for divorce, but now rumors are flying that her alleged cheating with Golden Tate may have caused their untimely breakup.

Despite having been married just two years earlier, Russell Wilson and wife Ashton Wilson have decided to call it quits. The Seahawks released an official statement concerning their marital woes (via Yahoo):

"I have made the difficult decision to file for divorce. Clearly, decisions like these don't come easy. Ashton and I respectfully ask for prayers, understanding and privacy during this difficult time. Moving forward, I will have no further comment on this personal matter."

To make matters worse, former teammate Golden Tate has been accused of having sex with Russell's woman. Though he now plays for the Lions in Detroit, this has done little to silence the scandalous rumors.

Perhaps that is why Golden took to Twitter, to bash all of the gossip tabloid's vicious claims. According to Tate, the gang are still friends (via Cover 32):

"Btw the ignorant minority of people, bloggers and whoever else spreading ridiculous rumors should cut it out. It's absurd the stories that. Are being made up from whatever source. In fact Elise and Ashton are still incredible friends, as well as Russ and I. I strongly advise the ignorant folks blowing this situation up and spreading this rumors to shut the hell up. Go watch the NBA playoffs. Finally, I don't understand why it's anyone's business what happens in one's personal life. It's irrelevant to his performance on the field."

What do you think about the latest rumors? Is there any chance that Golden actually slept with Russell's wife? If not, why did he make such a crazy Twitter declaration?
