Theballerlife.com has learned that New York Knicks star Raymond Felton’s wife, Ariane Raymondo-Felton, is filing for divorce after less than 19 months of marriage.
Beautiful 26-year-old law student Ariane, who married 29-year-old Felton in 2012, filed for divorce Tuesday in Manhattan, Page Six can exclusively reveal. A second source confirmed Felton has personally been served with divorce papers, although the grounds for divorce were not clear Tuesday night.
Brunette Ariane, a Cornell graduate and former paralegal at corporate law firm Willkie Farr & Gallagher, is now a first-year student at Fordham University School of Law.
She reportedly dated Felton for a number of years before the couple tied the knot on July 28, 2012, in Wake Forest, NC.
He reportedly said on their wedding video, “Beautiful as ever, from the first day I met her. I’m going to take care of her. You have my word. I promise you. No matter what it is, I’m always there for you. I love you.”
The NBA star and Ariane shared an apartment on the Upper East Side and have no children. But Felton had fathered a son with another woman before he and Ariane were married.
South Carolina-born Felton signed a three-year, $10 million contract with the Knicks in 2012.
