Who is Keyshawn Johnson's wife Jennifer Conrad? How NFL star's rocky marriage survived divorce threat
Jennifer Conrad had filed for divorce from the football star in March 2015, just seven months after the couple tied the knot
Keyshawn Johnson had to share some incredibly sad news on Monday, March 15, when he took to social media to announce the death of his first-born daughter Maia. She was his child with ex-wife Shikiri Hightower. The two were married from 1998-2002 and also have a son Keyshawn Johnson Jr together. Keyshawn also has two young children — London and Vance Johnson — with his current wife Jennifer Conrad.
Did you know, Conrad had filed for divorce from the football star in March 2015, just seven months after the couple tied the knot? Well, it's 2021 and Keyshawn and Conrad are still married. Three years after the couple filed for divorce, a judge, in 2019, dismissed the case due to inactivity adding that if Conrad wants to move forward with the divorce, she could re-file her case. The pair reconciled at one point but then Conrad, who has two young children with Johnson, said she was pushing forward with the divorce.
Who is Keyshawn Johnson's wife Jennifer Conrad?
Conrad married Keyshawn in 2014 after being in an affair since college in 2008. The two tied the knot in a four-day oceanfront wedding in Newport Beach, CA in August- with Conrad rocking a pair of Swarovski crystal Louboutin shoes worth $ 6,500. He even sent out the best wedding invitations ever — iPad 4s — each pre-programmed with all of the 411 for their big day. The couple went on to have two children.
Conrad filed a divorce after seven months of their marriage, in March 2015, but the court dismissed the case due to inactivity after three years of the divorce filings. So far there are no rumors about their recent relationship status so it can be assumed that they might be living together and solved all the problems.
The former NFL star became the center of an alleged cheating scandal, when a woman claimed the 45-year-old retired athlete got her pregnant in 2016 and demanded $4,346 child support, according to TMZ. She fought for a paternity test to establish her 4-month-old child’s parentage. But that wasn’t the first controversy Keyshawn had weathered since his retiring from the NFL.
In 2014, he was arrested and charged with a misdemeanor and domestic battery after he and an ex-girlfriend reportedly got in a fistfight in his Calabasas, CA home. He posted $20,000 bail and was set free.
Prior to Conrad, the NFL star was married to Shikiri Hightower since 1998 but later got divorced in 2002. They were University sweethearts. After leaving Keyshawn, Shikiri dated John Mahannah. During the time of their dispute, Keyshawn was linked with Serena Williams and Shikiri to rap promoter Suge Knight.
In 2014, while he was in a relationship with Conrad he had another affair with a newly married model Alicia Tarry. Tarry's husband, Brian Holloway, claimed he went through his wife's Twitter messages and found numerous exchanges between her and Keyshawn, including a request for a graphic nude photo. "Send me a p**** shot," one message said. Conrad is reported to have filed for divorce after this incident came to light. Tarry said she did not have an affair with the NFL star and that the messages were 'illegally obtained.' Keyshawn, who played for the New York Jets, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Dallas Cowboys and Carolina Panthers before retiring in 2007 to become an analyst and enjoy a brief stint on 'Dancing With the Stars', also denied the accusation with a source saying he has 'no idea what the guy's (Tarry's husband) talking about.'
Needless to say, the former NFL player is said to still be trying to repair his marriage with Conrad and get her back.
