Tiki Barber Sued: You Knew You Were Cheating

7/13/2010 4:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A company that made a deal with famed, retired NFLer Tiki Barber and his wife claims Barber fraudulently passed himself off as "happily married" in order to score some quick cash.

Tricera Revolution, Inc. -- which manufacturers state-of-the-art indoor cycling studios -- alleges in a new lawsuit filed in New York and obtained by TMZ ... it made a deal with Tiki and his wife Ginny, because they were "purportedly a happily-married, celebrity couple who were known to attend indoor cycling classes together."

The company gave the couple stock in return for PR, only to learn later, "...Barber was engaged in an adulterous affair with a twenty-three year old intern, Traci Lynn Johnson and intended to divorce Ginny Barber, with whom he had already fathered two children and who was pregnant at that time with twins."

Short story -- the company claims Barber knew the whole "happily married" thing was a lie when he signed on, and now the promotion is worthless.

Tricera wants to undo the deal and get its stock back from the Barbers.

So sad it has come to this. The first time I saw him (on the talk show, I think) I thought what a fine, well-groomed, well-dressed, articulate man. Beautiful smile. Maybe he will be a good role model for black men (and all men, actually). I later found out he was "happily married" with kids. Now, the total package. Sorry he turned out to be something much, much less.

I was a big fan of Tiki but he disgusts me.

Not a true man.

How immature and thoughtless.

Dont just blame him... If his cheated on wife didnt just see dollar $igns and fame when dating him, you can easily spot that this guy is on the make for ladies and will eventually stray.
...And close your mouth for a chance Tiki. No body wants to see your teeth all the time.

He should lose the deal just for having a stupid first name. Who names their kid after a torch?

Another one...Tiger, Kobe, Gary Coleman, Urkel, and now Tiki. Should have stayed true to the black women, Shabazz was absolutely right. You get what you deserve, and you deserve what you get.

I agree with TheRealJerseyShore. I also believe Jinny thought everything was ok and happy as far as "HER" marriage was concern because she wouldn't have let herself be pregnant again had she knew that her lowlife husband was cheating on her with some blond young woman. And that moronic young thing is as lowlife as Tiki for stealing someone else's husband.

What goes around comes around.

Damn, some people will sue for just about any perceived slight! But yeah, his wife looks like a 10, don't know why he would cheat on her to begin with unless she has the personality of a Lohan.

Barber is a complete fraud. Gawd, he was staying at his VERY young girlfriend's dorm room while his wife was carrying their twins. NBC sacked him for moral reasons. Now this company is doing the same. He's a PIG. I hope he's happy with the VERY young, expensive piece of Ass he has now. Men are so stupid!

Tiki is a poor exuse for a man, as a husband and as a father. What kind of man does that to his pregnant wife who trusted him. If I see him on TV I turn the channel.

Tiki picked a loser chick to connect with. Trashy Traci can't hold a candle to Ginny but Tiki is going to find out what it is like to be shut out of jobs, endorsements, functions all because of his poor choice of mistresses and his failure to respect his wife, children and, at the time, anticipated twin daughters. He is a sorry excuse for a man. Wonder where Trashy Traci has been hiding out. She won't like it when Tiki has no spare cash to buy her things and take her on trips. What NBC gave to Tiki they have also taken away from him. No job so lots of time with the mistress.

This is narcissism at it's best. His sense of entitlement makes him pathetic. All show and no sustenance.
