Tiki Barber Has Affair with Traci Lynn Johnson, Dumps Pregnant Wife Ginny Barber

by at . Comments

In his worst career move since retiring one year before the New York Giants won the Super Bowl, Today Show correspondent and former NFL star Tiki Barber has dumped Ginny Barber, his wife, for former NBC intern Traci Lynn Johnson, reports say.

Tracy Lynn Johnson is just 23. They have two sons already and Ginny Barber is eight months pregnant with twins. A twin himself, you'd think Tiki would respect that.

Then again, maybe Ronde Barber is really the one cheating. Think about it.

Ginny found out about the scandalous relationship late last year. Johnson, a model-thin bombshell, was photographed sitting next to Tiki at a Washington, D.C., screening of a documentary on Senegal that he hosted for the Travel Channel.

Sources say Johnson, who also worked on the 30 Rock set, accompanied Tiki to film in Senegal when Ginny was three months pregnant. Their affair is particularly stunning in light of Barber's long-standing disdain for his philandering father.

Barber's confidants were shocked at his conduct. One said:

"We were shocked to find out that he could walk out on his wife of 11 years while she's pregnant with twins. He was with this girl in Senegal while Ginny was three months pregnant. And we believe she was also with him at the Olympics in Vancouver."

Barber, who is believed to have relocated to an Upper West Side bachelor paid, released a statement yesterday in response to the Post story announcing the split:

"After 11 years of marriage, Ginny and I have decided to separate," Barber said. "This decision was a painful one, but we are moving forward amicably and will continue to work together to raise our children with the love and dedication they have known."

Tiki had no additional comment. Ginny is a former fashion publicist and full-time mom to the couple's two sons, A.J., 7, and Chason, 6. She also declined comment.

Man, first Tiger Woods. Then Jesse James. And now this. Now many more celebrity cheating scandals can we take? Too bad Tiki's not following them to sex rehab.


My son graduated high school with her and she had a crush on him.He said that she couldnt get any guys and nobody would give her the time of day.

what is it in america these days about white females and negros? are all white american women little more than cheap whores?


You can tell that most of the people attacking the blonde are blacks that are upset that he is "betraying" his race...c'mon, even his pan-faced wife is a mess, and he chose THAT over black women! I suppose of course that the overwhelming majority of single black women wouldn't be attracted to him anyways, right? HAHAHA!


To the people objecting to the race of the women in Tiki's life those gals chose Tiki. He can hardly be blamed for that.

do any of us have any right to comment on Tiki or Tiger or Jesse James or anyone who cheats for that matter? If it doesnt involve our marriages or our lives in any way, who are we to judge? These people are human, and though their behavior may be inexcusable, its not our place to pass judgement. Jump off the soapbox and quit being so high and mighty. We've all done stuff we are not proud of, some more extreme than others. These men and their families have to deal with it and passing judgement on them doesnt help at all.


well i guess this settles it tikki is a no good dirt bag just like his father. he traded down his wife who is pregnant with twins for a pale acne prone cheap hooker who cakes makeup on. you have to question not only his integrity but that of the cheap hooker whom he has chosen to cavort with. she will most likey get hers when he trades her in like a used car for a much younger tighter model. may she see how it feels to be the scorned one.what are they both doing. her parents must be so proud of how her conduct reflects on their lousy parenting skills


It's seems allmost natural now days that a secuessful black man would pick a young blonde over what got him to where he is today. What is he going to do when the blonde gets old.


Ok, I've been sold on to the crimmy argument and I'm a guy. I can't really sit with this one either. But it may be that the pregnancy was a tactic to keep him home. And has anyone noticed that celebrity relationships in their eleventh hour tend to wind up with twin before the crash. Sometimes the twins hold them together. But the truest poetic justice Tiki could get is if women - out of some sort of new age just-in-time sorority - offer themselves to fall on the sword and just announce themselves as Tiki's side pieces so as to jettison his newfound romance before it even starts. Would that be some new-media-age shit?
