On the court, P.J. Washington is a killer for the Charlotte Hornets. The 23-year-old is a solid rotation piece with averages of 11.8 points, 5.7 rebounds, and 2.3 assists per game on 45.4% shooting.
When it comes to the dating scene, however, the guy doesn't have a perfect track record.
At one point in time, P.J. was married to a woman named Brittany Renner, who filed for divorce in 2021 after the birth of their child.
Some of the details of their split are still a mystery, but she was able to net a child support payment of $200,000 a month, and even bragged about it on social media.
"The worst people to deal with are the athletes," said Renner in a viral video. "None of them use condoms. So if y'all really wanna come up off a check off a man, you can just f*ck an athlete, they're really dumb."
Recently, Renner actually spoke about her relationship with Washington and actually took some accountability for her role in the split. Of course, that doesn't mean she let P.J. off the hook entirely.
"I kinda knew what I was already signing up for being with someone younger. As much as I could laugh and look at all the red flags, there was a lot of things on my end too. Number one was believing in untapped potential that never materialized. It never happened. He's young, too, another red flag. And then I'm like 'he's impressionable' so I was like [I can fix him]."
It's unfortunate what happened between P.J. and his ex-wife, but it's not unheard of for top-level athletes.
Often, living a life of luxury and wealth can cloud judgment in relationships and lead people to commit to each other way too soon.
In this case, Renner was also able to secure the bag as a result. But it's fair to say that both she and P.J. learned a few lessons along the way as well.
