*Don’t expect Russell Wilson to give an interview without mentioning his girlfriend Ciara, and vice versa. Are they aiming for power couple status? The Seattle Seahawks quarterback appears in a feature for the latest issue of Rolling Stone in which he claims God meant for him and CiCi to be together.
Although they claim to be abstaining from sex, and he has yet to put a ring on it in an effort to forge ahead with their lifetime of certain bliss, Wilson says God wants him and Ciara to do something “miraculous and special.”
“I knew God had brought me into her life to bless her and for her to bless me and to bless so many people with the impact that she has and I have,” Wilson told Rolling Stone. “He has anointed both of us — he’s calling for us to do something miraculous and special.”
“We connect so well, and we have the same vision,” he shared. “It’s a perfect fit, you know? Is it weird? No. It feels right.”
Wilson married his high school sweetheart, Ashton Meem, in 2012, but they divorced shortly after the Seahawks’ Super Bowl victory in 2014. There have been recent rumors that his ex is stalking and harassing him and Ciara on the low on social media because she’s jealous of their relationship. We can’t substantiate such ramblings from Black Twitter, but we do suggest that you keep an eye out for any hashtags inspired by their not-so-love triangle.
Wilson also tells Rolling Stone that he credits the “healing properties” in a sports drink that he’s an investor in for aiding in his recovery from a head injury he suffered in last season’s NFC Championship Game.
“I banged my head during the Packers game in the playoffs, and the next day I was fine,” Wilson said in the story. “It was the water.”
Wilson is referring to Reliant Recovery Water, a product which he also claims “miraculously” healed an unnamed teammate’s knee injury.
“I know it works,” he said, according to the story. “Soon you’re going to be able to order it straight from Amazon.”
Wilson’s agent Mark Rodgers, who was present at the time of the interview, pumped the breaks on Russell’s claims by saying, “Well, we’re not saying we have real medical proof.”
