Maybe The Fifth Time Will Be The Charm? Ahmad Rashad & Wife Headed For Divorce

Well, it seems like Ahmad Rashad just isn’t the marrying type.

According to Gossip Extra, the longtime sportscaster and his wife, Sale Johnson, are on their way to divorce court. This marriage marks the fourth for Rashad and second for Johnson. She was once married to Johnson & Johnson billionaire and Jets Owner, Woody Johnson. The two were married in 2005.

According to the report, the couple has actually been living apart for quite some time now.  The two haven’t filed for for divorce yet but instead are working out the financial difference before they begin making the divorce process official.

Johnson gained quite a bit of money from her divorce from Woody Johnson; it’s estimated that she received more than $100 million in the settlement.  When word first got out that Johnson and Rashad were married, people joked that Johnson was now Rashad’s “sugar mama.”

Sale’s camp is allegedly leaking the information. They say the reason for the split is Rashad’s friendships with athletes Michael Jordan and Tiger Woods. As we all know, Woods has a very murky history with the ladies while Jordan has supposedly been dragging him to a restaurant called Rachel’s quite often for…”dinner.”

From Rashad’s camp, the rumor is that they’re just not in love anymore.

Hopefully, this won’t turn into an even bigger public mess, but when camps are somewhat openly putting the information out there, we might hear more about this relationship than we thought we’d ever want to know.

We’ll be keeping an eye out on this one.

    He needs to grow-up, it’s the man in the mirror that has the problem.

    At least he will marry you! You just never know what goes on behind closed doors. He’s a handsome man, someone will marry his; she’s probably just wating on the divorce to be final.

  • Natasha T

    This woman looks like she’s about 20 years older than Ahmad. Plus he used to be married to Phylicia Rashad, and she’s still looks great for 64.

  • Stans4Forreals

    If she’s gonna leave him she better move quick.. She’s coming up on that 10 year mark… He can make a really good argument to null any prenup at that point…

  • NeaJ

    He left Claire Huxtable for that? Shame!!

    • Stans4Forreals

  • espressobean

    He was married to Phylecia Rashad. They were a pretty hot couple back in their day. I didn’t know that he had so many other marriages as well.

    • olivia

      Nothing worse than and old, washed up ex-playboy with multiple marriages under his belt.

      No worries tho, somebody out there is willing to be wife #5.

  • guest

    Oh well, him and that lady made a very odd pairing.
