Cindy Deangelis Grossman is famous as the former wife of Herschel Walker. Her spouse is a multi-talented athlete who has built a great career in several fields. Cindy is also a former athlete just like her husband.
The ex-couple was happily married for several years until Walker’s mental illness became the culprit in breaking their marriage. The former couple has a son.
Today we will try our best to trace out some unexplored facts about Cindy. What is she doing these days? Also know, is Grossman remarried to anyone after her divorce from Herschel?
In the meantime, also take a look at her family background and age!
When did Cindy Deangelis Grossman Married Herschel Walker?
The couple exchanged their vows in March 1983. They walked down the aisle in front of their family members and close friends. The two dated for a long time before their nuptials.
Cindy Grossman’s husband later bought a new apartment in Verona, N.J and the newlywed moved right in. They also bought a new Mercedes at the time.
How Did Cindy and Herschel First Meet?
Initially, the pair first met two years before their wedding. Both of them first glanced at one another whilst being treated for an injury in the athletic training room. Upon meeting, they started dating right away. At the time Cindy’s dad knew the lovebirds will definitely marry. He said in an interview with UPI,
“I haven’t spoken to Herschel and Cindy about this, but I knew they intended to get married. I have met him many, many times and it has always been the same impression. He is a very exemplary gentleman. My wife feels the same way as I do.”
Grossman and Herschel’s sister Veronica used to run track at Georgia. It was Veronica who first introduced Cindy to her brother. Cindy told to Chicago Tribune about Walker’s shyness,
“I remember how he acted when we met. I thought he was really weird. He had never dated a girl in his life. They`d ask him out, and he wouldn`t go. And he`d never asked anyone out himself.”
“He used to come over to my room and just sit there for two hours, doodling on a piece of paper, not saying a word.”
The two athletes subsequently began their lovey-dovey along with handling their professional goals side by side.
During the tenure of their marriage, the duo was quite supportive of each other. When the former NBA superstar underwent shoulder surgery he said there was no one, not a single teammate with him in the hospital except his wife.
Cindy Deangelis Grossman and Herschel Walker share a Son
They welcomed their child, a son named Christian Walker on 30th September 1999. However, shortly after the birth of their child, the couple went their separate ways.
At the time of their separation, their son Christian was just a toddler. We’re sure the divorce might’ve been the most difficult for him, but thankfully his upbringing didn’t falter.
How Their Marriage Ended in Divorce? Was Herschel Walker’s mental issue the Reason?
Yes, Walker’s dissociative identity disorder (D.I.D.) was one of the major reasons that the two went their separate ways. No one knew about his rare illness until the footballer sought professional help while playing for Russian Roulette in 1998.
Cindy DeAngelis Grossman’s husband opened up his years-long fight with the disease in his book called Breaking Free: My Life with Dissociative Identity Disorder, released in 2008.
Herschel also revealed he has forgotten some major moments of his life such as winning the Heisman Trophy in 1982, the highlight of his epic collegiate football career, and many other accomplishments.
On the other hand, it was also a quite hard time for his wife Grossman. She told different sides of her spouse to ABC News,
“It’s hard to explain, but even his physical countenance would change. … There was also a very sweet, lovable [personality]. That’s the one he told me I married. He told me I didn’t marry Herschel.”
Cindy explained some dark moments,
“We were talking and the next thing I knew, he just kind of raged and he got a gun and put it to my temple.”
Walker held a gun to his wife Grossman’s head a lot of times. On another occasion, the footballer threatened to kill Cindy and his therapist in a therapy session. He also threatened her with knives several times.
Grossman knew about his identity disorder after 16-years of marriage and it was quite late for the duo to continue their marriage. The two eventually separated.
Since Walker’s D.I.D. left him unable to give some care to their little boy, the NBA star couldn’t fight for custody of their kid.
As a result, Cindy solely won it. As of now, Christian shares a good relationship with both of his parents. He frequently shares their pictures on his social media handles.
Their Son Christian is a Cheerleader
The young boy has a good career in cheerleading. He grabbed attention after his acclaimed performance during the 2016 World Championship of All-Star Cheerleading. He also helped Spirit of Texas Royalty to win the major title at the time.
