That pesky little marriage that Tiki Barber destroyed is sure proving to be a nuisance to his future nuptials with Traci Lynn Johnson.
The New York Post reports Barber and Johnson's pending marriage will have to be put on hold for the time being. The two were reportedly hoping for a May wedding next year, but circumstances with Barber's divorce are holding that up.
A source told The New York Post that "Tiki and Traci cannot get married until the divorce with Ginny is settled, and it’s taking longer than they expected to reach a settlement."
The source also mentioned that the ball was very much rolling with plans being put into motion and invitations being printed.
The report then cites Johnson who states that she has in no way began printing of invitations. The report quotes Johnson who squashes the rumors.
Tiki and I are very excited for the next stage of our lives together, but we have no concrete wedding plans as of yet.
Barber, the former New York Giants running back, has had to endure one of the most public and humbling divorces in sports.
He divorced his wife, Ginny, when she was still pregnant. Leaving his wife of 11 years for a younger Johnson left Barber wide open for public criticism.
After a failed stint as a sports analysts, Barber recently attempted a comeback into the NFL—he is still waiting on any team to call him back.
Now the latest in a string of humiliating events has Barber having to wait until his divorce to Ginny is finalized before he can truly move on with Johnson.
If you want to get a view on how to go from the highest of highs to the lowest of lows, you can take a note or two from Barber.
In a twist of fate, Barber's future hinges on the outcome of his failed past. If ever there were a sports star who would like a time machine, it would be Barber.
