An amateur photographer snapped this picture of Tikki barber and Traci Lynn Johnson at Newark Airport in December 2008 as Tiki headed to a Dallas-Giants game.
According to the NEWYORKPOST,
“A source who knew Traci Johnson at Mount St. Mary College in upstate Newburgh said that Barber won her heart more than two years ago — and that the former star running back isn’t shy about lavishing her with gifts. “On her 21st birthday, he sent her 21 dozen roses to her dorm. He also gave her a diamond and sapphire bracelet,” the source said. “At this point, she had a boyfriend, and told him that she and Tiki were ‘just friends,’ but nobody bought it. “He gave her and her friends [Giants] jerseys for them to dress up in on Halloween . . . He would shower her with designer handbags and expensive clothes.”
The source said “he came to the school, and she introduced him to her friends. “At first, we thought he was a nice, sweet guy. Really warm and friendly. “But once we realized what was going on, we were disgusted. We never expected him to be so disrespectful to his wife. “One night, he sneaked into her dorm and stayed over the night,” the source said. “The next day, Traci didn’t want to let him out of her room to use the bathroom because she was worried someone would see him and catch them. “Traci said that she didn’t expect him to leave his wife, and that [Ginny] was so pretty.” Another former college classmate of Johnson said, “She was not shy about their relationship. She also used to tote around the little white dog that he bought for her,” that source said.”
