Hall of Famer Namath files for divorce
Posted: Sunday April 04, 1999 01:08 PM
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) -- Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Namath has filed for divorce.
Namath and his 37-year-old wife Tatiana married in 1984 and have a home in Jupiter. They have two children, Olivia, 13, and Jessica, 8.
According to court records, Tatiana Namath is not contesting the divorce, the Sun-Sentinel reported Sunday. Namath's lawyer, James Fox Miller, filed the papers in Broward County circuit court March 19.
Namath, 55, remains one of the most celebrated football figures, even in retirement. During his years with the New York Jets, Namath's playboy image as "Broadway Joe" shook the staid NFL. But for many years now he has reveled in his life as a doting family man.
Namath was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1985 after a 13-year career, 12 with the Jets and the last one with the Los Angeles Rams.
He is best remembered for his guarantee that the Jets, a 17.5-point underdog, would beat the Baltimore Colts in Super Bowl III. The Jets won 16-7, a victory that vindicated the upstart AFL.
