Cindy DeAngelis Grossman | Biography
Cindy DeAngelis Grossman is best recognized as the wife of former American Football running back and Republican politician Herschel Walker.
Who is Cindy DeAngelis Grossman?
Cindy DeAngelis Grossman is the ex-wife of the retired American Football player Herschel Walker. She married her former husband in March 1983 and welcomed a son named Christian Walker sometime in 1999. However, after almost two decades of marriage and a son together, the pair legally divorced in the early 2000s.
Despite such a longtime marriage with a high-profile celebrity, Grossman’s personal information regarding her age and early life is scarce on the internet. She has also not revealed about her current whereabouts, job status, or professional career.
Insight on Grossman’s Abusive Marriage and Divorce
Reportedly, Walker’s mental condition was the primary reason for their separation. He had a disease commonly known as Dissociative Identity Disorder. He has also opened up about his mental health situation in his 2009 book, ‘Breaking Free: My Life With Dissociative Identity Disorder.’
During the dark period of his health, Walker threatened to take Grossman’s life multiple times. In an interview with CNN in 2008, Grossman talked about her horrifying experiences when Walker put a razor to her throat. She said, “He had it to my throat and kept saying he was going to kill me... I think he choked me. I think I passed out.”
She added, “When I came to, there was someone else there [saying] 'Cindy, Cindy, Cindy. Wake up, wake up!”
However, Walker claims that he has no memory of the incidents mentioned by his former wife. Although he took accountability for his actions, he said, “One of the symptoms of DID is blackouts. I do not remember certain events.”
After being a longtime victim of abusive marriage and Walker’s horrifying impulses, Grossman filed for a divorce in 2001. She cited on her divorce petition “physically abusive and extremely threatening behavior.”
