Brett Favre’s scandal is universal at this point and no one knows more than his wife what a player Favre is off the football field as well as on. At least, that’s what she learned when they first got together, New York Post reports. Deanna Favre has been through this type of thing before with Brett, but not to the elevated status of the sexting scandal.
If she experienced an untrustworthy relationship with one of the NFL’s major players more than once before, than why would she be shocked?
Brett Favre’s Wife Has Endured His “Plays” On Other Women
Ten years before Deanna married Brett, she wrote in her 2007 autobiography he was abusing alcohol and the drug, Vicodin when he was a player for the Green Bay Packers. This occurred in the mid 1990’s and she admits in the book that she knew “there were other women at those places where Brett and his friends were partying.”
Deanna wrote in her book Don’t Bet Against Me! Beating the Odds Against Breast Cancer and in Life, “Most people assumed I was jealous and simply wanted him to stop going out. But I knew something was dreadfully wrong.”
Brett Favre’s wife recalls a time she heard him on the phone calling another woman. Deanna confronted him on his playboy ways back then. She was going to leave him, but took him back after he begged her to come back and the Packers’ coach told her not to go or Brett would “end up killing himself.”
That was the beginning of their union spiraling out of control. Little did they know this history would be recanted in the future as a scandal presented itself.
In their relationship later on, Brett told Deanna he had an addiction to Vicodin. It was then Favre entered rehab and the two married after that.
Deanna Favre Was an Enabler for Many Years
Deanna adds that she was pregnant through some of those up and down years with Brett Favre. It was because of that, she felt she was an enabler, she wrote in her book. The scandal surrounding Brett Favre and the former New York Jets sideline reporter, Jenn Sterger, has put a spotlight on the history the Vikings player shares with his wife.
Is this scandal a case of history repeating itself for Brett Favre and his wife? Favre is a great player on the field, but does he still resort to playing ‘off’ the field as well?
