Former NFL quarterback Johnny Manziel shared an emotional Instagram post Saturday dedicated to his estranged wife — more than a month after the couple had split up.
Manziel, who has since deleted all of his pictures off his Instagram account, apologized to Bre Tiesi in the post. It was the same day as Tiesi’s birthday.
“HBD B. There would be no life for me without you having come into mine. Through everything we’ve overcome I just want to say I’m sorry. For not being there more and doing what I can to make you truly happy. You deserve it all and then some. Love ya for life,” he wrote.
A Twitter user took a screenshot of the message before Manziel scrubbed his account.
Manziel confirmed to TMZ Sports in March he and Tiesi had split.
“This is all very, very personal and very sad,” he said. “I appreciate everyone who has been so supportive of both of us and I would just ask that everyone respect our privacy at this difficult time.”
Tiesi and Manziel wed in March 2018. The Instagram model made headlines recently after she denied she cheated during a half-marathon following reports that she may not have run the full race. She used social media to address rumors of the split after responding to a fan’s comment on Instagram, People reported.
“Vows were broken,” Tiesi told a commenter.
Manziel was released from the Canadian Football League earlier this year and had an abbreviated stint with the Memphis Express of the failed Alliance of American Football. He told the “Dan Patrick Show” he’s hoping to get another opportunity to prove himself in the NFL.
