Poor Chris Cooley. In a matter of 30 days his life has become a complete mess. He lost his NFL job in August when the Redskins cut him and now, according to the Washington Post, he’s getting a divorce from his ex-Redskins cheerleader wife, Christy. Once known as the godfather of NFL social media, Cooley is jobless and hasn’t used his Twitter account @thecooleyzone since March.
Now 30, Cooley is just a broken down ex-NFLer who will owe his ex-wife a chunk of money for their four-year marriage. He didn’t have a pre-nup.
The divorce, filed Aug. 29 in Loudoun County, has been in the works for months: The couple separated in January and, despite having no pre-nup, we’re told, have already hammered out a settlement deal.
“Both Christy and Chris worked hard to be reasonable with each other so they could settle this matter without litigation,” said her lawyer, Lindsay Hendrix. “They are both to be credited for reaching a resolution that permits their private lives to remain private.”
From what we can see of Christy’s Facebook account, it seems she isn’t having trouble rebounding from the divorce. Just 27, she has plenty of good years left to find another NFLer.
