Tiki Barber left his wife who was pregnant with TWINS last April…for 23-year-old NBC intern Traci Lynn Johnson. After Barber left his pregnant wife and their kids, he lost his job as a correspondent for NBC.
NBC fired the former NFL star and “Today” correspondent because of a morals clause. Barber was earning over $300,000 per year for his on air position with the network. Was Tracy Johnson worth it?
The former New York Giants player and “Today” correspondent is coming out of retirement. Barber he announced he wants to go back to the NFL, probably for money reasons, because Tiki’s career has gone down the toilet after NBC let him go.
The 36-year-old Barber hasn’t played in the NFL since 2006 but he’s made plenty of headlines due to his bad behavior. It takes a pretty big jerk to leave a pregnant wife….but to leave a pregnant wife of TWINS, plus kids for an intern just out of college? Double EW!
As of last summer, Barber claimed he was broke and could not pay his divorce settlement with his ex-wife. What a great guy.
