Ashton Meem and Russell Wilson's relationship
Ashton and Russell were high school sweethearts. Russell decided to take their relationship a step higher by proposing to Meem in 2010. The proposal caught media attention because Russell went down on one knee and proposed with one of the famous rocks in jewellery history. Ashton Meem's engagement ring was an 8-carat rock.
Ashton Meem's wedding
The beauty tied the knot on 14th January 2012 at the Country Club of Virginia. Coincidentally, this was the same year Russell was drafted into the NFL. Although there are searches about Ashton Meem's draft, it was not hers but instead that of her then-boyfriend Russell. After the wedding, they decided to move in together to begin their marriage phase.
Although most people expected a happy ever after for the two, unfortunately, things did not work out. They reportedly stayed in different houses before coming clean to the public and announcing their divorce in April 2014.
Many rumors were flying around about their breakup. Most people believed the cause was an alleged affair between Meem and Russell's colleague Golden Tate. However, both parties vehemently denied the allegations, and the high school sweethearts never gave a reason for their divorce.
Two years after the divorce, Russell walked down the aisle to tie the knot to the R&B superstar Ciara. However, his ex-wife appeared to have gone under the grid. However, she resurfaced and went ahead to change her Twitter profile to a picture of her engagement rock.
Her action did not sit well with some people because Wilson had moved on and married Ciara. Again, he had proposed to Ciara with what seemed with a lower 5-carat diamond rock. However, David Harris, a high-end jeweller, revealed that Ciara's rock was more valuable and worth roughly between $2 and $2.5 million based on another he had sold.
