Bills' defensive lineman Mario Williams dispute against ex-fiance Erin Marzouki took a particularly dark turn earlier today, and it was all over the $785,000 engagement ring.
Williams is suing Marzouki for the recovery of that ring, which she believes is an award for putting up with his alleged mood swings. Also, Texas law states that if the man breaks off an engagement—which Marzouki's attorney, Tony Buzbee, says he did—the woman gets to keep the engagement ring. So yeah, getting back that ring is going to be a bit of a hassle.
Buzbee also took things to support Marzouki's "mood swing" defense by releasing the text messages Williams sent to her:
“I took 3 hydrocodones this morning and no one knows,” Williams allegedly said. “I’m going to take 2 more on the plane and fade away.” Williams also allegedly said: “No money in the world should leave me with suicidal thoughts.”
Was it really that necessary to release something so personal to the pubic? There's not really an excuse for classlessness no matter how expensive that ring is.
