Rumors were afloat that the couple had split since Ashton was allegedly having an affair with Golden Tate, Seahawks wide receiver. Tate at that time issued a statement that he has been unnecessarily dragged into a personal domestic problem of the couple. He again addressed the issue with his girlfriend Elise Pollard. He was surprised that Russell had gone ahead with the divorce without even asking him or talking to him once.
Taking about his failed marriage, Russell said:
“I married the person I was with in high school… that didn’t work out, unfortunately. I just trusted God would do the healing process. I’d gone through some ups and downs.”
