Another day, another athlete involved in a sordid divorce for the pleasure of the New York tabloids.
Today's episode stars New York Giants wide receiver Amani Toomer and his wife, Yola Dabrowski. They tried, oh they tried, but they were unable to reach an amicable settlement privately, so they are heading to divorce court to air out their grievances in public.
Among the shocking allegations, Toomer alleges that his wife refused to have the big family they talked about and had an incredible four abortions during their 4 years and change marriage, all against his consent (not that she needed it). She also refused to take Amani's name, Toomer.
Amani alleges that Yola refused to have sex with him, wouldn't take her depression medication and makes fun of him when he trips on the turf without being tackled. Yola alleges that Amani forced her to decorate and entertain and go on vacations with him. Oh, and he also supposedly peed on her clothes when she refused sex. You can't make this stuff up.
One thing Michael Strahan, Jason Kidd and Amani Toomer all have in common is that they are high profile, wealthy, attractive athletes. They could have any woman they want. They can pick the most beautiful, the smartest, the most devoted women in the world. But they don't. They pick chickenheads and act surprised when they start clucking. You reap what you sow. And I don't feel one lick of sympathy for them. And neither will the judge, when those alimony checks start flying out of the bank account. Next time, use your powers for good.
