Tiki Barber married his mistress yesterday.

The former star running back and Today show correspondent Tweeted that he walked down the aisle with Traci Lynn Johnson, the woman with whom he allegedly cheated on his pregnant wife in 2010.

"Many thanks to the NYC Clerk's office, especially James Mitchell who married me to my love Traci Lynn Johnson!" Barber wrote on his social network account. "Excited for the next chapters..."

Tiki was accused of stepping out on his now-ex-wife with Johnson, 23, who worked as the couple's babysitter, but he addressed those allegations two years ago and claimed "we were only friends when I was still married. I was separated, out of my house so it wasn't until then that we took things to the next level."

Denied the opportunity by all 32 NFL teams to make a comeback, Tiki Barber is "flabbergasted" but apparently content to move on with his life.

"This is the last time I am speaking on this subject in any way, shape or form,'' said Barber's agent, Mark Lepselter, to the New York Post. "You can't worry about the things in life you can't control and Tiki has moved forward accordingly.''

Sports Illustrated's Peter King reported Monday that Barber didn't get a single call over the weekend as teams began finalizing their rosters.

"I hear he's devastated," wrote King, who also talked to Lepselter, who told him: "We are flabbergasted that Tiki has not had an opportunity with any NFL team, especially when rosters were at 90 players this year (during training camp)."

"I certainly thought some team would be intrigued to see what he had left."

Barber's professional life imploded a few years ago when he divorced his pregnant wife and began seeing 23-year-old intern Traci Lynn Johnson (above).

The Today personality then likened himself to Anne Frank, which was lame.

Former New York Giants star turned Today broadcaster Tiki Barber lost quite a few fans when he left his pregnant wife to be with his 23-year-old girlfriend.

A remark he made to L. Jon Wertheim of Sports Illustrated regarding that situation isn't likely to help the ex-running back win any back, we're guessing.

Telling SI that he moved into the attic of his agent, Mark Lepselter, to escape prying eyes, Barber used the following, wholly unnecessary analogy:

"Lep's Jewish, and it was like a reverse Anne Frank thing."

Mmm. A millionaire ex-NFL star and TV personality vs. a teenage Holocaust victim. So similar. What's next, someone likening the lockout to modern day slavery?

Oh, wait.

No harm done, you might say, and you might be right, but still, that's a pretty asinine comment at best, especially from a dude whose image took more of a pounding over wooing Traci Lynn Johnson than his body did in 10 NFL seasons.

Former NFL star Tiki Barber and Traci Lynn Johnson, now his official girlfriend, sat down with Entertainment Tonight to refute rumors about their affair.

Rumors, they say, which are skewed by perception. Or something.

Tiki is accused of leaving pregnant wife Ginny for the 23-year-old Johnson after 11 years together. But the former Today personality says it's not true.

"It's hard, because everything is so skewed by the coverage, and by the perception," the longtime New York Giants running back said on ET.

For her part, Traci Lynn Johnson added, "I just feel that now is the time to just make sure the rumors that were said are revealed as false."

Traci Lynn Johnson and Tiki Barber say they did nothing wrong.

Tiki and Traci say that despite claims that they dated for two years before being busted, they were only friends during his marriage. He says:

"We were only friends when I was still married. I was separated, out of my house so it wasn't until then that we took things to the next level."

Traci adds: "Tiki and I were romantically involved when he was separated, plenty of people who are separated have boyfriends and girlfriends."

Tiki hopes for a normal life for his four kids: "My goal is to not have the kids suffer because of the failings of mine and my soon to be ex-wife."

"I'm just a normal guy who had a job that people cared about, and maybe there is a standard to live up to that but it's a hard one, for anyone."

He didn't live up to Ginny Barber's standards, that's for sure.

Former NFL star Tiki Barber is being sued for divorce by wife Ginny Barber. At the center of the divorce drama? His affair with Traci Lynn Johnson.

After running around town with his young mistress while his pregnant wife spent a week in the hospital, one would have to say Tiki deserves it.

The ex-New York Giants star was slapped with divorce papers over his shameless gallivanting with Traci Lynn Johnson, a 23-year-old NBC intern.

"He couldn't be more heartless," said a friend of his eight-months-pregnant wife, Ginny, whose Manhattan divorce suit cites Barber's "adultery."

"[Ginny] is very heavily pregnant and was last week ordered into the hospital on bed rest," the friend said. "Meanwhile, Tiki has been spotted all over town with his new girlfriend while she was in the hospital."

"He was at the NFL draft and out dining with Traci."

With the mother of his two children on bed rest while pregnant with their third and fourth, Tiki Barber has been parading around with Traci Lynn Johnson. Class act.

Moreover, Tiki is reportedly shacking up with Johnson in a Midtown love nest.

Ducking out of that apartment and into his car, Tiki refused to answer questions and only flashed a grin when asked whether he had spoken with his wife.

On top of the cheating, Ginny Barber is also outraged that Tiki has been low-balling her in out-of-court negotiations over financial support, a friend said.

The family friend said: "It's been an emotional time for her, and she is, of course, worried about the health of her unborn twins. It's a lot to deal with."

Sources say his and Traci's torrid romance was a two-year-long affair beginning long before Ginny, a former fashion publicist, got pregnant with twins last summer.

A source told The N.Y. Post that the Today show has booted Tiki as a correspondent amid fallout from the scandal. NBC and Tiki refused comment.

The wreckage that is Tiki Barber's divorce from pregnant wife Ginny Barber amid his affair with Traci Lynn Johnson continues to unravel and entertain.

According to reports, the mistress was lying to her parents telling them that she was Tiki’s “babysitter” while he spent the night ... at her dorm room.

We know this, naturally, because the father of Traci Lynn Johnson unwittingly bragged to friends that she was a babysitter for the NFL star's two kids.

He has two right now, with two more on the way in a month. Classy. 

Earnest Johnson’s proud boasts made daughter Traci Lynn look good to neighbors at the time ... until the world saw her in quite a new light yesterday.

Tiki Barber girlfriend-mistress Traci Lynn Johnson: Celebrity home-wrecker du jour. Somewhere, Jesse James and Tiger Woods are thanking Tiki for the reprieve.

A source who knew Traci at Mount St. Mary College in upstate Newburgh, N.Y., said that Barber won her heart more than two years ago, lavishing her with gifts.

“On her 21st birthday, he sent her 21 dozen roses to her dorm. He also gave her this diamond and sapphire bracelet,” the source said. “At this point, she had a boyfriend, and told him that she and Tiki were ‘just friends,’ but nobody bought it."

“He gave her and her friends [Giants] jerseys for them to dress up in on Halloween ... He would shower her with designer handbags and expensive clothes.”

So he's basically the anti-Tiger Woods. That dirty cheapskate.

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.
