NFL player Emmanuel Sanders has been ordered by a judge to stay away from his pregnant wife after she filed for divorce. What caused the sudden split?
Emmanuel Sanders wife Gabrielle has filed for divorce, according to TMZ Sports.
NFL player Emmanuel Sanders and his wife just celebrated their third year of marriage together, but it seems that something has gone horribly wrong in their marriage and Gabriella wants out. The pregnant woman also got a judge to order Sanders to stay away from her.
According to court documents obtained, the exact reason for the split is never identified by Gabriella Sanders.
“The marriage has become insupportable because of discord or conflict of personalities.”
This does not seem like it will be an amicable divorce between the NFL player and his pregnant wife.
The judge has given Gabriella a temporary restraining order, and Sanders is not allowed to return to the couple’s Texas home until further notice.
The judge gave the NFL wide receiver “limited access” to the couple’s 2-year-old son and newborn daughter.
The divorce papers also reveal that Gabriella Sanders is asking for child support and a “disproportionate share” of assets because she is claiming the divorce is Emmanuel’s fault.
Whatever the NFL player did must have been pretty bad for his wife to leave him mid-pregnancy.
The NFL player has yet to comment on the situation publicly.
According to Bleacher Report, Emmanuel Sanders just posted a photo on his Instagram account to announce that his wife Gabriella gave birth to a baby girl named Zoie.
While the couple put on a happy face for the photo and their son, in reality, the two are facing a bitter split.
The Denver Broncos player will not be heading home with his wife and their newborn baby daughter in a few days because of the restraining order against him. It looks like the Texas-native will have to find a new place to call home.
Gabriella must have temporarily allowed the NFL player to see her and his newborn daughter in the hospital.
