Miami Dolphins wide receiver Tyreek Hill denied that he filed for divorce 76 days after getting married — but easily searchable court records prove otherwise.
A petition for the dissolution of marriage appeared on the Broward County (Florida) clerk’s website on Jan. 22, with Hill listed as the petitioner, and his wife Keeta Vaccaro as the respondent.
However, the speedy wideout has said on X/Twitter that the two are still happily married.
A summons was issued to Vaccaro on Tuesday.
Vaccaro, the sister of former New Orleans Saints and Tennessee Titans safety Kenny Vaccaro, is an entrepreneur who met Hill back in 2020. Her relationship with the eight-time Pro Bowl wide receiver was one of the larger storylines of the Hard Knocks television series on MAX. One of her shining moments came when Hill sustained an ankle injury against the Titans back in December. At halftime, she texted him saying, “you better get your ass back in the game.”
Hill returned to the game, having four catches for 61 yards. Miami lost the game 28-27.
Hill has had legal issues in regards to his relationships with women in the past. He was recently hit with two paternity suits by women who are claiming to have had his children. He also was arrested for choking his then-girlfriend in college back in 2015 while she was pregnant with their child — he pleaded guilty and received three years probation and faced allegations of child abuse in 2019. (His lawyer denied the allegations and no charges were filed.) This is the first time Hill has filed for divorce from any of his partners, despite the refusal of the filing.
Earlier this month, Hill’s Florida home caught fire when two children were playing with a lighter. The damages from the blaze to his South Florida home are estimated to be $2.3 million.
