Romantic relationships can have their fair share of bumps in the road – whether you’re a football player legend, a superstar singer or just a regular person on the street. For some married couples, the bond becomes stronger with time, but other pairs eventually decide to call it a day and look elsewhere to start from scratch. And who’s to say that you won’t find true love just around the corner?

Russell Wilson can certainly relate to this experience, as became clear after he made a life-changing announcement in April 2014. You see, it was back then that the Seattle Seahawks quarterback confirmed he was getting a divorce from his then-wife, Ashton Meem. The football star and Meem might have seemed like the perfect celebrity couple. But it appears that not all had been well in the household – putting an end to their two-year marriage. The following year, however, Wilson found love again. And this time the circumstances were very different.

In fact in 2015, Wilson formed a relationship with music star Ciara, who had also endured a tough period in her personal life. Some two years earlier, the singer had celebrated her engagement to a rapper named Future. Then, a few months later, she welcomed her first baby into the world, naming him Future Zahir Wilburn. But the relationship took a turn for the worse.
