Mario Williams and his now former fiancee, Erin Marzouki, have been seeing a mediator lately (albeit unsuccessfully) in regards to a lawsuit that Williams filed seeking to recover the engagement ring he bought Marzouki that was valued at $785,000. During the case, though, it looks like Marzouki has brought some serious issues regarding Williams to the table that may surprise a lot of folks.
“Texas law says that if the man breaks off the engagement, the woman keeps the ring,” Buzbee said. “Mr. Williams experienced dramatic mood swings throughout the engagement. It was during one of his low points that he broke off the engagement for the last time this past December. It was only after Ms. Marzouki refused to take him back that he became angry and filed this frivolous case. He should have not filed a case out of anger. Ms. Marzouki will not be bullied. In the court system, no matter how rich you are, everyone is treated equally.”
The statement Buzzbee released about ‘dramatic mood swings’ is what’s concerning.
On Friday, he released a three-page series of text messages sent to Marzouki’s phone in which Williams wrote on Nov. 11, “I took 3 hydrocodones this morning and no one knows” and “I’m going to take 2 more on the plane and fade away.” He also texted “No money in the world should leave me with suicidal thoughts.”
In the text message conversation, Marzouki seems to be begging Williams to get help, at one point saying “The way you are handling it us (sic) incredibly self destructive.”
the messages from her also read: “Why don’t you talk to someone? Clearly you’re not happy & if your takin (sic) pills that’s bad,”
Williams apologized to her via text in the conversation, saying that he was furious and shouldn’t have texted her “in this state”
If the text messages are indeed true, Williams’ engagement ring is the least of his concern. If he is having suicidal and emotionally unstable thoughts, he needs to seek help.
Issues like that go beyond football.
