Former UM standout and Super Bowl hero Jeremy Shockey has decided to end his marriage — just eight months after tying the knot.
According to Miami-Dade County court records, local resident Shockey cited irreconcilable differences in the short filing against wife Daniela Cortazar.
A source close to Shockey said the former tight end has an iron-clad prenuptial agreement in place. Shockey hung up the phone on Gossip Extra when asked about the divorce..
His marriage license shows Shockey, 32, and Cortazar, 22, were married on May 14 by a county clerk in Miami Beach.
“He told me the two of them are going to stay friends,” the source said. “One day, you were talking to him and the next day he was married. He may have rushed into this a little too quickly.”
Shockey, who played for the New York Giants and New Orleans Saints in their respective Super Bowl seasons, spent this season looking for a team.
