NFL star Earl Thomas gets diamond pendant birthday gift from wife, days after she put loaded gun to his head
NFL star Earl Thomas appears to be in good stead with his wife, despite her recent arrest for allegedly placing a loaded gun to his head.
MEA WorldWide (MEAWW) previously reported that Thomas had been threatened at gunpoint by his wife Nina Heisser after she tracked him to a hotel where he was cheating on her using Snapchat.
She was booked on charges of burglary of a residence with the intent to commit aggravated assault with a deadly weapon -- family violence, for the incident. Court records showed she was also served an emergency order that meant she would be required to stay at least 200 yards away from her husband and his mistress at all times.
However, despite the altercation, the Baltimore Ravens free safety seems to still be in good terms with Heisser, as is evidenced by a recent post on his Instagram page.
Thomas celebrated his 31st birthday this past Thursday, May 7, and celebrated the occasion by posting all the wishes and presents he had gotten through the day. In one of the posts, he gave a shoutout to his wife for a diamond pendant she had gifted him.
The pendant featured a picture of Thomas with his grandfather Pastor Earl Thomas, who passed away in 2018, and of whom he has spoken of very highly in the past.
Thomas and Heisser had gotten into a big fight after she found him naked in bed with other women on April 13 at an Airbnb in Austin, Texas, that he had booked.
The Austin Police Department had to be called to the residence at around 3:41 am on a disturbance and had found "a black female wearing an orange sweater with a knife in her hand" chasing a "shirtless black male with a pistol in his hand around a vehicle."
During questioning, Heisser confessed she had tracked him to the location after he had left their home earlier that day with his brother Seth Thomas following an argument over his drinking.
She said she had called up two other women to confront him after she logged into his Snapchat account and found a video of him with another woman. She admitted she grabbed a pistol, a 9mm Berreta, intending to "scare him."
When they arrived at the Airbnb, the group found Thomas and Seth "naked in bed with other women," prompting Heisser to pull out her gun and put it to his head. One of the other women in the room managed to capture the incident on her phone, with the video showing her pointing the weapon "from less than a foot away."
Heisser said "she took out the magazine thinking that the gun could not fire." While police noted she was "unaware that the gun had a round in the chamber," they did point out that it can "clearly be seen that Nina's finger was on the trigger and the safety is disengaged."
Thomas had previously addressed the incident in a video he uploaded on his Instagram page before the report was published and said this was "not how I wanted my birthday breakfast to start out."
"I mean, it’s really not anybody’s business," he shared. "It pisses me off that it got out, but it’s the world we live in today. But instead of talking about us, just keep us in your prayers. Stuff like this happens."
"You try to live the best life you possibly can, but sometimes it don’t go as planned. Just pray for us as we go through this stuff. We’re back talking. I’m seeing my kids. Just keep us in your prayers."
