Woe is me for Tiki.
First he leaves the New York Giants and they win the Super Bowl the year after. Then he has a little fight with Eli Manning and his leadership skills on the field were questioned. And after all that, he gets an amazing job as an anchor on the Today Show, but is asked to leave after a bit of scandal.
Who knew you could be ‘let go’ for hooking up with a hot blond intern at your job and leaving your wife (who was eight months pregnant) for her?
But the sad story only continues! Barber is now claiming that he does not have enough money to pay for his divorce settlement. Barber has four children with his soon-to-be ex-wife, Ginny. On his salary of $300,000 a year that he had with NBC, he claims he can’t support her as he could have before he lost his job.
According to The New York Post:
The buddy confirmed that Tiki, who had been working as a NBC’s “Today Show” correspondent, has “parted ways with NBC” on the heels of the scandal. That job paid him an estimated $300,000 annually.
Ginny’s rep said the claim of a $150,000- per-month alimony demand “is categorically untrue. That number is completely and utterly ridiculous.” The rep added, “She does not even have a nanny.”
The Post exclusively revealed in April how Barber dumped his wife of 11 years for 23-year-old former NBC intern Traci Lynn Johnson.
Now he and Ginny — who delivered twin girls last month — have struggled in divorce court to reach a settlement. Some sources said Tiki is trying to “low-ball her” and has cried poverty because of the loss of his “Today” gig.
In response, Tiki’s agent Mark Lepselter said, “It’s very sad, and it would be better if they settled this as amicably as possible.”
