You may have already heard the name of Herschel Walker, the multi-talented athlete who has built a great career in several fields. He previously married Cindy Deangelis Grossman, a former athlete. The ex-couple happily married for several years until Walker’s D.I.D. became the culprit in breaking their marriage.
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? The former couple has a son.
In the meantime, also take a look at her family background and age!
When did Cindy Deangelis Grossman Get Married to 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. They also had a new Mercedes at the time.
How Did Cindy and Herschel First Meet?
Grossman and Herschel’s sister Veronica used to run a track at Georgia. In the meantime, Veronica also 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.”
Two athletes subsequently began their lovey-dovey, handling their professional goals side by side. The duo was too supportive of each other. Back in the 1980s, the 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 Has a Son With Walker
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.
Christian was a toddler at the time.
How Their Marriage Ended in Divorce? Was Herschel Walker’s D.I.D 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 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 which 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.
