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.
