Nina Thomas, wife of Earl Thomas, files for divorce
The divorce comes seven months after Nina held the athlete at gun point because of an alleged affair
Nina Thomas, wife of NFL player Earl Thomas, has filed for divorce on Saturday, seven months after holding the athlete at gun point for being in bed with two women and his brother.
As reported by TMZ, Nina Thomas submitted paperwork on Nov. 3 which cited adultery and indicated that there’s “no reasonable expectation of reconciliation.”
According to court documents from the April 13 incident, Nina and the former NFL athlete were engaged in a heated argument when police received a call. Nina was discovered chasing her husband around a car with a knife.
According to the documents, Nina logged into his Snapchat account and discovered a video of him and another woman. She was able to locate him from the video and confronted him with his 9mm Beretta pistol.
Nina Thomas, 31, was arrested on a felony charge of burglary of a habitation with the intent of committing aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, according to NY Post.
Last month, Thomas celebrated his wife’s 31st birthday in a Instagram post where he called her “the woman who I can talk to in the middle of the night” and further expressed, “I love you wife.”
The couple shares three children together and Nina intends to limit his access to them until “he takes a parenting course and can show evidence that he is able to care for the children for an extended period of time,” according to the documents.
In August, Thomas was terminated from the Baltimore Ravens for “personal conduct” stemming from an altercation with fellow teammate Chuck Clark during practice and showing up to training camp meetings late.
According to a CBS report following his termination, Thomas was close to signing with the Houston Texans but coach and general manager Bill O’Brien “opted to not” sign the athlete after many Texans players expressed their concerns of bringing Thomas on the team.
Nina and Earl Thomas originally got married in 2016.
