Bronco Emmanuel Sanders's Wife, Gabriella, Calls Him a Cheating Horndog

Update: Last year, the website named Gabriella Sanders, significant other of receiver Emmanuel Sanders, among the "hottest wives and girlfriends" of Denver Broncos players; see our previous coverage below. But beneath the couple's gorgeous and glamorous public image roiled a marriage in deep trouble. This past October, Gabriella filed for divorce, and now, in court documents obtained by TMZ, she accuses Emmanuel of cheating on her multiple times, spending big on his conquests and lying to the Broncos about attending the birth of his child so that he could party instead of practice.

Emmanuel has used his obvious attractiveness and charm to set himself up for a lucrative post-NFL life. He's a frequent presence on local and national sports programs, and this past year, he was featured alongside fellow receiver Demaryius Thomas in a promo that found the pair meeting babies who were conceived by Broncos fans immediately after the team won Super Bowl 50 in 2016.

But the portrait of her husband painted by Gabriella is hardly that of a family man.

An excerpt from her court filing reads: "When he's not playing football on the field, he 'plays the field' with numerous women with whom he is or has committed adultery."

Among the marital "atrocities" the document cites are assertions that Emmanuel spent "thousands upon thousands of dollars on girlfriends and wasting the community estate, even purchasing a vehicle for one of his illicit affairs."

As for her claim that Emmanuel begged out of a November practice session for reasons other than the arrival of his new baby, the Broncos have thus far declined to comment. But NBC Sports notes that "with $6.75 million fully guaranteed for 2017, a team-imposed suspension could void the guarantee and set the stage for a parting of the ways, if the new coaching staff decides to move on."

Such a development is very unlikely. Whether the Broncos' quarterback next season is Trevor Siemian, Paxton Lynch or (cue the rumor mill) Tony Romo, he'll need weapons, and Sanders definitely qualifies. Besides, new coach Vance Joseph is probably not the guy to play the morality card, given that he previously faced sexual-assault accusations during his days as a CU Buffs assistant coach for allegedly climbing into bed with a sleeping woman and rubbing his erect penis against her.

Will such revelations hurt Emmanuel's chances of a television career after his playing days are done? That's doubtful, too. Given the cynicism of TV sports producers, not to mention the macho sexism of many fans, this latest episode might enhance his bankability, not impinge on it.

Original post, 6:23 a.m. June 2, 2016: Yesterday, in writing about the arrest of Jaimee Rando in an alleged domestic-violence incident involving her boyfriend, Denver Broncos receiver Cody Latimer, we included information about her from, a site devoted to the "hottest wives and girlfriends in sports."

No surprise that plenty of other Broncos are featured, along with their significant others.

Moreover, the site appears to stay up to date. Note the inclusion of Paxton Lynch, newly drafted as the Broncos quarterback heir apparent.

Look below to see excerpts from pages dedicated to Lynch and five other current Broncos. The items feature FabWags photos and text excerpts, as well as links that will connect you to a lot of additional info and more pics.
