Grete Griffin, the wife of former NFL quarterback and current ESPN college football analyst Robert Griffin III, has a message for the women that slide into her husband’s DMs on social media. She posted a video on TikTok where she calls out the “thirsty women” in a funny way.
“Thirsty women in my husbands DM’s not knowing I run his social media,” Grete wrote alongside the clip, in which she mouthes the words to Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi.”
She added, “The joke’s on you,” in the post’s caption, along with the hashtag “thirsty.”
The two were married in 2018 and have two daughters, they are expecting a third child. RGIII also has another daughter from his first marriage with Rebecca Liddicoat.
The Griffins are known to share glimpses of their lives on social media and like any other public figures it hasn’t always gone smoothly.
First, RGIII had to fend off rumors that he and Grete got together while he was still married to Liddicoat. Ironically she and Griffin started talking via DM.
There was the time he posted a photo of Grete on Juneteenth, in an attempt read by some that he was “showing off his white wife.” The commenters were unkind.
In 2021 RGIII announced that he was to release a book titled “Surviving Washington,” which was to detail his experiences, including sexual harassment and medical mismanagement of his injuries, during his time with the Washington Commanders franchise.
In a since-deleted Tweet, Grete Griffin made it clear that the sexual harassment issues involved her husband.
“Let’s clear up a misconception about “Surviving Washington”. In the book, Robert is not talking about other peoples experiences with sexual harassment in Washington. He is talking about his OWN experience with sexual harassment in Washington.”
Earlier this year RGIII, through his agent, said the book will no longer be released.
“Through the process of thinking about writing a book, I’ve learned that this an issue bigger than one person,” Griffin said. “I want to give space to and elevate those who have already come forward, while encouraging those who have not yet to feel empowered to speak. This is a matter that very qualified people are continuing to manage with sensitivity and seriousness, and ultimately, I learned that this book was not the proper forum for this. In time and through a more meaningful method, I hope to address my first-hand experience.”
RGIII was drafted No. 2 overall in the 2012 NFL draft out of Baylor. He was named rookie of the year and earned Pro Bowl honors as a member of the Commanders franchise.
Injuries derailed a promising start to his career as he was never able to show the promise he did as a rookie. He signed with the Cleveland Browns and eventually the Baltimore Ravens, where he was last seen as a backup to Lamar Jackson in 2020.
In 2021 RGIII signed a multiyear deal with ESPN to serve as a college football analyst, a role he is pretty good at. This could easily be his job for the next 20 years.
