Detroit Lions wide receiver Golden Tate says he DID NOT have sexual relations with Russell Wilson‘s wife … despite rumors to the contrary … and he claims the Seahawks QB knows it.
Of course, Wilson and his wife Ashton split up back in April — and there were rumblings that it all had to do with an alleged affair involving one of Russell’s Seattle Seahawks teammates.
Golden — who played with Seattle at the time –signed with Detroit a short time later … fueling the rumors.
But now Tate is denying everything in a statement posted on TheCauldron — writing:
“I did not have an affair with Russell Wilson’s wife, nor did I have anything to do with his divorce.”
“That is laughable for anyone who knows us. His ex-wife, Ashton, is still best friends with my girlfriend.”
“Russell and I were good friends when I was in Seattle, on and off the field — he knows the rumors about me were unfounded, damaging to my reputation, and an attack on my character.”
In fact, Golden’s GF posted a pic with Ashton just 4 months ago (pic below).
