Tyreek Hill has had quite the week.
Earlier this week, reports came out the Miami Dolphins wide receiver, 29, is seeking the dissolution of his marriage to Keeta Vaccaro, whom he married in November 2023 during the team’s bye week, according to Broward County court records reviewed by PEOPLE.
“Boy no the heck we didn’t so don’t put that in the air !!! We are happily married and gone stay that way,” Hill wrote alongside a post from the Sun-Sentinel which said he filed the petition for divorce.
PEOPLE has reached out to representatives for Hill for comment.
In November, Hill confirmed that he and Vaccaro had married.
“I did get married to my longtime fiancé,” Hill told reporters in the Dolphins locker room in a clip shared on X. “It was about time. It’s something that we wanted to do over the bye week and we did it. We went through with it. Well I finally went through with it.”
“It feels good man,” he continued. “Everything that’s been happening to me man has been for good reasons.”
According to records obtained by TMZ at the time, Hill and Vaccaro were married in Austin, Texas on Nov. 8.
Tyreek Hill Says He Fired F***ing Bonehead Lawyer Who Filed For His Divorce Without His Approval
Hill said during a Twitch stream on Thursday night that he never gave anyone permission to file a petition for divorce earlier this week, as was reported by multiple outlets.
“I just gotta say that it sucks that . . . yeah, a lot of our stuff is public record,” Hill said. “But behind closed doors, a lot of people got fired, too, for just doing things without a ‘yes.’ . . .
“It sucks that me and my wife gotta go through that. Like yeah, public records says it and right now we’re in a spot of fixing it — I fired the f****ing bonehead that did that mistake. Now it sucks.”
Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk Isn’t Buying Tyreek Hill’s Story
Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk brought up a few key points. First of all, why would Hill have to fire a divorce attorney if he was never seeking a divorce in the first pace?
Here’s what Florio said.
Implicit within Hill’s comments is a concession that, yes, a petition for divorce was filed (despite his prior denial). Also, it sounds as if he gave the green light to the preparation of the paperwork, but not to the filing of it. Lawyers don’t just spontaneously prepare paperwork they haven’t been told to prepare. They do the work that their clients tell them to do, if they hope to get, you know, paid
It’s possible Hill did indeed give the green light for the drafting and the filing of the petition, and that he didn’t realize his wife would find out about it before he wanted her to find out about it. If so, he needed an excuse. Saying the lawyers did it without approval was possibly the best thing he could come up with.
Florio raises valid points. Something about this whole Tyreek Hill saga isn’t quite adding up, and while there’s no point in speculating, the truth may eventually come out.
