Ryan Shazier’s wife, Michelle, leaked a batch of text messages between him and his alleged mistress this week.
Back in 2017, Ryan suffered a career-ending spinal cord injury as a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers. Michelle stuck by him throughout the entire recovery process.
The pair was thought to be very happily married. Unfortunately, that illusion was shattered this week when Michelle took to social media to leak texts between Ryan and his alleged mistress.
In a crazy sports week that has seen the real reason Erik Spoelstra and his wife are divorcing come out, Arch Manning’s Texas transfer options dwindle to two schools, and Travis Kelce’s ex flirt up a storm with Jalen Hurts, it would take a lot to steal the headlines. But Michelle successfully did.
Fans had some strong takes to the drama:

In a message to TMZ, Ryan said that he and Michelle were actually separated at the time the messages were exchanged.
“Michelle and I have been living apart and are currently separated. As we work through what comes next for our family, I ask for privacy and prayers.”

Michelle has yet to offer any follow-ups.
It will be interesting to see where this sordid saga goes from here.
Will Ryan and Michelle ultimately get on the same page for the sake of the Shazier family as a whole? Time will tell.
