Houston Texans running back Arian Foster and his wife Romina Lombardo Foster have called it quits after four years of marriage. The action comes just one year after the NFL star fathered a child with another woman.
TMZ confirms Romina filed for divorce on April 22 in Texas "after much thought and soul searching." The couple share two young children together.
"After much thought and soul searching, I have made the difficult decision to end our marriage," Romina said in a statement. "We are both committed to being excellent co-parents. Our children always come first and we will continue to raise them together as a family. We ask that you respect our privacy and our children's privacy during this time."
Arian added: "After 4 years of marriage, it has been nothing but a gift. I'm extremely grateful for the wife, mother and person she was to myself and our children. I will continue to be here and support her wholeheartedly on her next journey as I'm sure she'll do the same for me. We have two beautiful children that are the center and focal point for both of our lives and I'm forever thankful that we crossed paths. At this time please respect the privacy of her, myself and most importantly our children."
Back in January 2014, it was revealed that Arian fathered a child with a woman named Brittany Norwood and was accused of pressuring her to get an abortion. Norwood later gave birth to a baby boy and settled their custody and child support battle out of court.
Details of the settlement never surfaced due to a gag order.
