Jayson Williams' Wife Seeks Divorce!

The New York Post reports that former NBA player Jayson Williams' wife has filed for divorce claiming physical and emotional abuse, family abandonment, adultery and substance abuse. Tanya Young Williams is also accusing her husband of threatening to kill her and faking to commit suicide among other scandalous accusations.

Williams is infamous for allegedly killing limo driver Costas "Gus" Christofi. He avoided jail time on a charge of aggravated manslaughter, but jurors at the time could not decide on a lesser charge of reckless manslaughter, although he was convicted of trying to cover up the murder. It appears that when many ex-athletes escape jail time, that they can't outrun those inner demons.

It sure does look like his life is going down the shitter. Is his wife leaving cause the money is running out and going to be going to all the lawyers in the next trial? or did he really do what she said, i think she is telling the truth, he didnt seem to have much regards to human life, and money seem to have worked in that case, but it seems like when the family of the deceased got the $2.5 million, they changed their minds and went after him again anyway, i get they didnt get enough moola. Good luck jason, and oh yea, say hello to my little friend..O.J. Simpson....:)
