Former NFL star's divorce from previous wife not done yet
Well, this is awkward. A month before former NFL star running back Tiki Barber was set to tie the knot fiancée Traci Lynn Johnson in a fancy Hamptons wedding hosted by New York City nightlife impresario Eugene Remm, the proceedings have hit a bit of a snag. It turns out Barber's divorce to his soon-to-be-ex Ginny Cha won't be finalized by then.
The former couple had been arguing about child support and alimony payments, which Barber said he couldn't pay for. In the crosshairs are the couple's four children, including the twins Cha was eight-months pregnant with when the former Giant left her for Johnson, then an intern for the same network Barber was working for—NBC. Since then, it has only gotten worse for Barber—The Today Show, where he had been working, did not renew his contract and his attempt at a comeback was short-lived. That's why it was only early this month that the alimony and child support situation was ironed out, and thus the divorce allowed to proceed. According to sources cited by
The New York Post, Cha will receive less than the $150,000 she asked for when the couple originally split.
Unfortunately for the couple, the earliest the split could officially occur would be some time in the next couple of months, leaving for what the new couple hopes is an "early summer" wedding. For Barber's sake, let's hope those deposits are transferrable.
