Tiki Barber - Blindsided by Divorce Papers

4/27/2010 7:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0427_tiki_barber_EX_Getty_01What a difference a month makes to former NFL star Tiki Barber, because according to a source, Barber was floored that his pregnant wife filed for divorce yesterday -- 30 days ahead of their game plan.

The source close to Tiki tells us the retired NY Giants running back thought he and Ginny Barber had called timeout ... meaning neither "would file divorce papers until after their babies were born." Ginny is eight months pregnant with twins.

It's unclear why the month matters so much to Tiki ... especially since he and Ginny have been separated since reports of his alleged affair came out weeks ago.

this whole Tiki divorce thing is not surprising at all. When he retired one could sense his resentment because he stated numerous times that the only reason he was retiring was because he said his wife was going to divorce him if he continued to play because she feared another concussion and serious injury. it was only a matter of time. and who cares when she filed the papers? I doubt a divorce will be final by the time she pops out the twins.

good for her for not going with the game plan that he & his lawyer probably wanted-which would have been better for his image as a celebrity



the divorce won't be final until after the birth but she is showing the world that his affair was a deal breaker-her being pregnant or not-and that there is no reason to delay the filing for image sake

All athletes are prone to cheating. Anyway, wasn't his wife Virginia Cha, a one-time announcer in the NY area?

98% of black athletes cheat on their wives...the exceptions are people like Tony Dungy.

What a since of entitlement Pro athletes feel they have these days. I used to adore you on Tiki Tuesdays on Fox and Friends - thought you were a natural. Now I just think you are a disqusting stupid stupid man who thinks with his ....well not his head. What is worse is you probably are proud of your choices. Getting kinda lonely at the top.

If she takes most of his money do you think his young girlfriend will stay with him-doubt it. This is one sorry excuse for a real man-you can dress him up on the outside, but he has no honor. The kids are better off without him in the home-he's no role model. Hope his brother has more sense. Sorry mom. Bet his childrens book sales are down-what a loser. She can do so much better-hope she finds a nice man in a few yrs to share her and her kids life with.
Sorry for bad grammar I was typing quickly.

Look, I'm a woman and not a huge Tiki fan either.



I just think it's silly for you all to rush to Ginny's side. Why assume she's so innocent? Have you read about how she moved her parents all up into their house? You really don't know either of these people or their marriage.
