Remember when Golden Tate vehemently denied the rumors that he was sleeping with Russell Wilson’s then-wife Ashton Meem? Here are the tweets back from April in case you missed it:

Well, if you thought switching teams (and time zones) capped the rumor, Tate decided to open up that can of worms again by addressing it in a story he wrote for The Cauldron:

I did not have an affair with Russell Wilson’s wife, nor did I have anything to do with his divorce. That is laughable for anyone who knows us. His ex-wife, Ashton, is still best friends with my girlfriend. Russell and I were good friends when I was in Seattle, on and off the field — he knows the rumors about me were unfounded, damaging to my reputation, and an attack on my character. Anyone who circulated that rumor was just plain irresponsible.

It’s totally weird how Golden keeps bringing this up, right? I haven’t heard about this rumor for a while and yet here he is denying again. And don’t forget when everyone was initially speculating about Russell’s divorce, Golden openly denied having an affair with Ashton despite not being questioned about it. Weird stuff.
