Tiki Barber, Traci Lynn Johnson Marriage Put On Hold Due To Former Giants Star's Messy Divorce

In the words of the immortal Lee Corso, "Not so fast, my friend."

According to the New York Post, Tiki Barber and his fiancee Traci Lynn Johnson were set to marry next spring, but the wedding has been put on hold as a result of Barber's unresolved divorce to his previous wife, Ginny.

“Tiki and Traci cannot get married until the divorce with Ginny is settled, and it’s taking longer than they expected to reach a settlement,” a source told the New York Post.

Johnson, who recently posed in lingerie in Maxim, met Barber while he was working for NBC and she was an intern. While the job didn't work out for Barber, he was let go by NBC in May of 2010, the relationship did, with Barber and Johnson announcing their engagement in August.

But their courtship was not without controversy. Tiki left Ginny, his then wife for 11 years, while she was pregnant with twins. Now, after a thus far unsuccessful NFL comeback attempt, Barber reportedly can't afford to pay what Ginny is demanding in the divorce settlement.

The situation seems messy, which has more or less been par for the course thus far in Barber's post-NFL life, but if he wants to hear wedding bells in the near future, it looks like the former Giant will need to find a new line of work quick.
