The saga of Robert Griffin III and his new girlfriend, FSU track athlete Grete Sadeiko, whose name he already has tattooed on his arm, transfixed the sports world on Wednesday. All of this came just one day after news emerged that RG3 was divorcing Rebecca Liddicoat, his wife of three years.

TMZ has done some follow-up reporting. Citing “sources close to the estranged couple,” they say that RG3 and Sadeiko met on Instagram in January, “the social media relationship turned real,” and Griffin’s wife was upset when she found out about it in April.

Further according to TMZ’s sourcing, RG3 and his wife had been separated since around then, but Liddicoat, who held out hope for saving the marriage, was “blindsided” when the Browns quarterback filed for divorce earlier this week.
