Robert Griffin III and his wife have pulled the plug on their marriage.
The Cleveland Browns quarterback and his college sweetheart Rebecca Liddicoat have been separated for the “past several months” and are in the process of filing for a divorce, according to Cleveland.com.
The couple married on July 6, 2013, and last year saw the birth of their first child, daughter Reese Ann Griffin.
The former Washington QB, however, told his teammates and coaches that they have filed for divorce, and the entire organization has been supportive.
According to TMZ, RG3 “has already scrubbed his Instagram page of all traces of Rebecca.”
Sources said that it’s been a difficult time for Griffin, but that he’s working through it with the help of friends and family.
The two were introduced by a mutual friend at Baylor in 2009 and Griffin proposed in October of 2010 in the school’s fieldhouse, following the Bears’ 47-42 victory over Kansas State.
They were married three years ago at the Denver Four Seasons in Colorado, because Liddicoat is a native of Boulder. Wedding guests included Baylor coach Art Briles, Washington Football Team owner Daniel Snyder, and Washington Football Team teammates Kirk Cousins, London Fletcher, Santana Mossand Pierre Garcon.
Despite what Griffin’s been going through, he’s become the strong, vocal leader that Hue Jackson wanted. He’s managed to compartmentalize his personal and professional lives, and not let the situation negatively impact him on the job.
