Who is Ryan Mallett's ex-wife?
Ryan and his ex-wife Tiffany Seeley were married in June 2020, but the pair got divorced just four months later. In a Facebook post at the end of that year, Tiffany shed some light on what led to the rapid deterioration of their relationship.
"2020 has hands down been the worst year for a lot of people not just me," she wrote. "I moved to mountain home and my significant other and I both started new jobs."
"Then came Covid, cheating, and drama around the corner to wake me up from this fairytale I thought I was living," she continued. "For me I realized I hated the person I’d become because I was constantly trying to change things out of my control. Either it’s there or it’s not and if it’s not go find something else that makes YOU happy and things will fall into place."
Seeley currently lives in Arkansas and runs an OnlyFans page.
