NFL star Mario Williams, who is suing his ex-fiancée Erin Marzouki to get back a $785,000 10-carat diamond engagement ring, actually sent her texts saying she could keep it, according to her lawyer.
Mario Jerrel Williams, 28, defensive end for the Buffalo Bills worth over $30 million with a $100 million contract, is suing Erin Marzouki for the return of the ring after their relationship turned sour.
Erin Marzouki, 31, who is counter suing to keep the ring levied accusations through her lawyer that Mario Williams lied in his lawsuit and repeatedly told her to keep the gift.
Her attorney, high profile Texas lawyer Anthony Buzbee, released a series of text messages this week that make it seem as if Mario Williams has in fact urged Erin Marzouki to keep the ring, contrary the allegations filed in his lawsuit, according a report from Ultimate Texans.
In the messages Mario Williams writes: “Keep those material things. It means nothing to me anymore,” later adding: “KEEP IT! Remember me by it.”
Anthony Buzbee described Mario Williams actions as emotionally unstable and said the football player is confused as to whether he wants to be married or single.
The lawyer also introduced into evidence an email written by Mario Williams earlier this year that asks Erin Marzouki to reconcile.
“I just want to verbally discuss and answer things knowing you have closed the door,” Mario Williams wrote.
“I still can’t say one thing bad about you that sticks.”

Despite the new evidence coming to light Mario Williams vehemently denies the allegations, saying that the messages were taken out of context.
“Obviously it’s just a tactic to cover up the point of the whole thing,” Mario Williams told the website.
“It is what it is. I could really care less. All it is (is) allegations and text messages and what not, whatever information blown out of proportion. I mean, it’s completely out of context.”
Yet in another message released by Anthony Buzbee, Mario Williams was allegedly more explicit in his desire to give Erin Marzouki the ring.
“She said she was going to keep the ring n told her fine. I put down using material things as leverage long ago. She is free to be n do as she wants,” Mario Williams wrote.
In his lawsuit Mario Williams claims that Erin Marzouki ended the couple’s engagement after a year because she “never intended to marry and used the relationship as a means to get money and acquire gifts”, according to the court documents.
In response to the charges Erin Marzouki has filed a counter suit to what she calls her ex-fiancé Mario Williams’ “silly” accusations and doesn’t intend to give back the ring because it was given to her as an unconditional gift.
Erin Marzouki says Mario Williams was the one who broke off the engagement because part of him “wanted to be married and start a family, while another part wanted to continue to live the life of a wealthy bachelor who could do whatever he wanted, with whomever he wanted, whenever he wanted”.
Mario Williams’ lawyers have asked the court to obtain the ring from Erin Marzouki until the legal action is resolved.
Mario Williams was the first selection in the 2006 NFL draft by the Texans and played in Houston through the 2011 season.
Although by regular standards the ring is a fortune, it is pocket change to Mario Williams who last year signed one of the most lucrative contracts for a defensive player in NFL history: a six-year, $100 million with the Buffalo Bills with $50 million in cash guaranteed.
Brittni Glass is the woman with whom Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher reportedly spent his final few hours before he went home, shot dead his girlfriend and then took his own life.
Brittni Glass, pictured as she walked to work at an Armani Exchange in Kansas City, enjoyed drinks and dinner with the NFL star before witnesses reportedly saw him enter her apartment building.
The images come as frantic 911 calls made by Jovan Belcher’s mother were also released, revealing the chaotic scene as she begged his girlfriend to “stay with me” after he shot her multiple times.
Just hours before she made the call, Jovan Belcher was awoken by police officers at 2:50 a.m. as he slept outside an apartment block in his car. He told them that he was there to visit his “girlfriend”, yet she was not home, police spokesman Darin Snapp said.
Darin Snapp said Jovan Belcher made a phone call and a short time later, a woman let Jovan Belcher into her building.
While Darin Snapp said police did not question the woman and don’t know who she is, the New York Post identified her as Brittni Glass.
Witnesses have since told police that Jovan Belcher stayed at the apartment until 6:30 a.m., Darin Snapp said.
“I was with him that night, that’s it,” Brittni Glass told the Post.

Brittni Glass said they had been together that night but were not in a relationship and would not say where he slept. Police confirmed that several people came forward to tell them about Jovan Belcher’s visit.
Darin Snapp added: “When he was sleeping she may have come home, and he didn’t realize. He was very cooperative and thanked the officers.”
He went off their radar until about 7:50 a.m., when police were called to Jovan Belcher’s home after he had shot and killed girlfriend Kasandra Perkins.
Her body was found on the floor of the master bathroom with multiple gunshot wounds, according to a police incident report.
In 911 calls released by Kansas City police on Wednesday, Jovan Belcher’s mother, Cheryl Shepherd, begs Kasandra Perkins to stay alive.
“Stay with me, the ambulance is on the way. Stay with me,” she shouts.
She adds to the dispatcher: “She’s still breathing but please hurry. I don’t know how he… They were arguing, please hurry.”
Cheryl Shepherd told dispatchers that Kasandra Perkins was bleeding, “just barely” awake and that it looked as though she was wounded in the back. She said Kasandra Perkins moved when she spoke to her.
When police arrived at the couple’s home at about 7:50 a.m., they found Kasandra Perkins’ body on the floor of the master bathroom with gunshot wounds to her chest, neck and abdomen.
On Wednesday, Cheryl Shepherd told The Associated Press that the days since the shooting have been very difficult – but that she loves her son and the slain girlfriend.
In a brief phone conversation, Cheryl Shepherd, who had been staying with the couple to help out with the baby, said she had a “beautiful relationship” with Kasandra Perkins.
She added that she has been working on funeral arrangements for Jovan Belcher but has not managed to sleep or eat much since the slayings.
Former NFL star Tiki Barber has married his one-time mistress and girlfriend Traci Lynn Johnson in a civil ceremony in New York City eight days after the divorce to his ex-wife became final.
Former New York Giants Tiki Barber, 37, running back wed 23-year-old Traci Lynn Johnson at the Manhattan Marriage Bureau.
“It’s a great day,” said Tiki Barber on the way into the office.
“We’re finally getting married.”
A polarizing figure, Tiki Barber left his wife of 11 years, Ginny, in 2010, even though she was eight months pregnant with twin girls, after beginning an affair with Traci Lynn Johnson.
At the time, Tiki Barber was working for NBC’s Today show with ambitions to be a serious journalist, but lost his job soon afterwards due to indifferent responses to his reporting skills.
The affair with former NBC intern and Maxim pinup girl Traci Lynn Johnson did not help his cause either, as public opinion turned massively against Tiki Barber, who appeared in the XXXV Superbowl in 2000.
Tiki Barber has married Traci Lynn Johnson eight days after the divorce to his ex-wife became final
Taking to Twitter to confirm the news, Tiki Barber said: “Many thanks to the NYC Clerk’s office, especially James Mitchell who married me to my love @TraciLJohnson! Excited for the next chapters.”
Traci Lynn Johnson and Tiki Barber had planned to get married on May 12 in the Hamptons, however, his divorce to his wife of 13-years had not been finalized and the ceremony was postponed.
After the ceremony, Traci Lynn Jonson tweeted: “We’re married @barber_tiki !!!!!!” and posted a variety of pictures from their happy day, including one of both bride and groom wearing their wedding rings.
Tiki Barber has hit the headlines repeatedly over the course of his playing career and in retirement.
During his final playing days at the New York Giants he became critical of the coach Tom Coughlin’s playing style.
In 2007, Tiki Barber questioned the leadership skills of the Giant’s star quarterback, Eli Manning, who has since gone onto to deliver two Superbowl titles to the Giants, both without Barber.
Also, Giants fans angrily booed Tiki Barber when he was inducted into the Giants’ Ring of Honor in October 2010.
Before his clandestine affair with Traci Lynn Johnson became public, Tiki Barber was thought of as a committed family man, already the father of two sons and the expectant father of twin daughters.
He met his wife, Ginny Cha at the University of Virginia when they were both students.
Tiki Barber incurred the wrath of New York’s Jewish community last year when he described his secret affair with Traci Lynn Johnson conducted in his friends attic apartment as being like the tragic story of Anne Frank.
Meeting his bride-to-be at his lawyer, Mark Lepselter, apartment, to hide the tryst from his wife, Tiki Barber made ill advised comments.
“Lep’s Jewish,” said Tiki Barber to Sports Illustrated’s Jon Wertheim reported the New York Post.
“And it was like a reverse Anne Frank thing.”
Tiki Barber told the New York Post last year that Traci Lynn Johnson helped him get through last year, in the aftermath of his firing from Today.
“I have a wonderful girlfriend who lives me and got me through those bad times,” he said.
In attendance yesterday were only close friends of the couple, including Tiki Barber’s twin brother, Ronde, who still plays in the NFL for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Kim Kardashian is in Miami to sound out premises for a new D-A-S-H shop, but she is squeezing in a bit of pleasure into her work schedule.
Kim Kardashian, 31, stepped out for dinner in Miami tonight showing off every inch of her voluptuous figure in a tight bandage dress.
The nude pink ensemble highlighted the reality star’s curves to perfection as she stepped out for dinner at Zuma with her best friend Jonathan Cheban by her side.
Kim Kardashian has been pictured hitting the gym frequently in recent weeks and it appears whatever she is doing is working.
The 31-year-old teamed the dress with matching peep toe heels and a hard clutch bag and had her newly-dyed tresses tumbling down around her shoulders.
Kim Kardashian showed off a fake tan disaster earlier in the day when she stepped out with patched on her hands.
Ahead of her dinner Kim Kardashian tweeted a picture of herself to her Twitter claiming she took it to check on her make-up.

While Kim Kardashian has been spending increasing time with Jonathan Cheban whose sexuality was questioned on her reality TV show, it has been claimed that she is secretly dating NFL star Mark Sanchez.
According to Strawberryicecream.com, Kim Kardashian and Mark Sanchez are hooking up in secret.

The source website also claims that Kim Kardashian and Mark Sanchez are planning a rendezvous for the Super Bowl weekend.
Since splitting from Kris Humphries last year just 72 days after her lavish wedding in August, Kim Kardashian has said to have been in contact with her ex Reggie Bush with some outlets claiming she was dating Tim Teebow.
However, Kim Kardashian , who has yet to be pictured on a “date”, has kept quiet on the rumors.
A spokesperson for Kim Kardashian failed to comment on the story earlier today.
While others might be speculating about her next boyfriend, Kim Kardashian will no doubt be focusing on finalizing her divorce.
Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries are said to be heading for a public divorce trial which could see their friends and family interviewed.
According to HollywoodLife.com, a source close to Kris Humphries said: “There are no divorce settlement talks going on.”
That means that the former couple and friends and family, will have to speak out in court and reports claim the legal wrangling could not only be on TV but may go on for weeks.
