Another blow for Tiki

Nothing seems to be going right these days for former Giants RB Tiki Barber. It’s hard to feel sorry for the guy, though, because it seems as though the downward spiral of his career can squarely be placed on his own shoulders.

Barber and his wife are in the middle of a divorce after it was discovered he allegedly was having an affair with a 23-year-old NBC intern – the same network where he worked as a football analyst on Sunday nights and for the Today Show as a correspondent. His wife, at the time he decided to leave her, was deep into her pregnancy.

Now, his jobs are gone, his wife is gone, and he’s being sued by a company that operates indoor cycling studios (come to think of it, this would make a great country song).

The Wall Street Journal has the story. Tricera Revolution Inc., who made an agreement with Barber last October to act as a spokesman for Flywheel Sports, is suing and “claiming his marketability as a celebrity spokesman has been ‘rendered worthless’ by revelations he allegedly engaged in an affair and by the breakup of his marriage.”

The company thought Barber’s relationship with his wife was strong, and it “had hoped to use its association with them to further its goal of attracting 25- to 55-year-old women and their spouses to spinning classes at its studios, the lawsuit said.”

The lawsuit is asking for $1 million in compensatory damages.

Barber said recently in this Fox News story he can’t afford the divorce settlement demanded by his wife.
