He already lost a Super Bowl ring (thanks to burglars) .. but now ex-Chicago Bears wide receiver Willie Gault is about to lose some more finger jewelry .. 'cause his wife just filed for divorce TMZ Sports has learned.

According to court docs filed in L.A. County Superior Court, Gault's wife -- actress Suzan Brittan -- wants to end the couple's 5-year marriage, citing irreconcilable differences.

Suzan and the 53-year-old former NFL star have no children together.

Suzan wants Willie to pay for her attorney's fees and she also wants spousal support.

As for Willie's 1985 Super Bowl ring we mentioned earlier, he eventually got that back ...after it surfaced at a secondhand jewelry store.  We're guessing the engagement ring he gave Suzan might end up at a similar location.

Why does she need spousal support after only five years of marriage and no children together? As a woman I do not understand the need for this type of request. Did she sacrifice her own education or career to support him through school? No, because they married after he achieved success. Was it really that difficult to be a wife if there were people hired to do the work part of keeping a home together? I don't know if they had housekeepers, personal chefs, or other frivilous help to do their jobs for them, but if they did she deserves nothing. I can understand child support when one parent has a majority of custody, but some of the amounts awarded are just ridiculous.
