Beleaguered NFL star Antonio Brown proposed to Chelsie Kyriss despite a series of disputes between the two, per Brown's Instagram story:
Brown and Kyriss have an incredibly rocky history. But they reportedly got back together at some point during Super Bowl weekend.
The former All-Pro receiver had a rather well-documented run-in with Hollywood police in which he yelled obscenities at both Kyriss and his children while also throwing a bag of candy things in her direction.
Less than two weeks later, Kyriss filed for sole custody of the three children she had with Brown. She also requested that his time with the kids be supervised.
Brown has continued to see a therapist in the offseason as part of a court order stemming from the police incident. And he has been very vocal on social media with respect to his past actions. He apologized to his former Pittsburgh Steelers and coaches during an appearance on 93.7 The Fan in February:
“I apologize to those guys for the distractions, the unwanted attention I probably caused those guys. I'm forever grateful & indebted to the Steelers organization. Mike Tomlin, Kevin Colbert, Ben Roethlisberger. A lot of beautiful moments. A lot of positive things.”
“These guys gave me an opportunity when I was 21 years and I’m forever grateful to those guys,” said Brown.
While Brown seems to have made amends with Kyriss and his family, there is a long road back to the NFL. Even if the opportunity exists anymore.
Brown is one of the most talented receivers in football. But sexual assault allegations and reckless behavior have essentially tied a black mark to his name.
If Brown does not get another shot at football, hopefully he can find the means to be a better husband and father to his children.
