A former professional football player, Hershel Walker is now a Republican Senate candidate in Georgia. He has a long history of abuse and has been accused of domestic violence by several women.
According to NBC News, Walker once held a gun to his ex-wife’s head and threatened to blow her brains out. This was reported by his ex-wife, Cindy Grossman, in 2002.
Hershel Walker and Daisha Walker
Hershel Walker, a former NFL star and current US Senate nominee from Georgia, is facing multiple allegations of abuse and menacing behavior. He’s also accused of using his dissociative identity disorder (DID) designation to justify “lying, cheating and ultimately destroying families.”
Herschel Walker and Daisha Walker have two children together: Christian, born in 2012; and an undisclosed daughter. The former Georgia state senator is adamant that he has been a good father to all of his children, and says he pays court-ordered child support.
The Daily Beast reported on Tuesday that a woman claims Walker tried to convince her to have two abortions in 2009 and 2011, paying for the first. She alleged that he told her it wasn’t the “right time” for them to have a child.
The Daily Beast shared a text exchange between Walker and the woman. In one message, the woman reportedly asked Walker if he had any siblings outside of his four children with his four wives. She also invited him to a baseball game in 2021.
Hershel Walker and Cindy Grossman
Hershel Walker and Cindy Grossman are a married couple that has a son named Christian. Despite their divorce, they are still in love and try to stay together to keep the family happy.
According to The Sun, Hershel Walker met Cindy Grossman while he was studying at the University of Georgia in the early 1980s. They became close friends and began dating soon after.
In their 2002 divorce proceedings, Grossman described violent outbursts from her ex-husband. One incident involved him pointing a pistol at her head, and another involved him threatening to kill her if she did not return his calls.
Walker is currently running for US Senate and has made controversial comments about his former wife in a campaign ad. The ad includes footage from Walker’s early football career and spins to an interview with Grossman.
Hershel Walker and Julie Blanchard
Hershel Walker has a wife named Julie Blanchard. Despite her being married to a famous sportsperson, she has managed to keep most of her personal life away from the media and public.
She is a well-known figure in the field of art and has made a name for herself through her creative works. She mainly creates portraits of people and places that have a special meaning to her.
According to reports, she also enjoys traveling and has a passion for learning new cultures. She is very friendly and makes people around her feel comfortable and happy.
Blanchard, who was Walker’s longtime business manager, initially questioned the prospect of running for Senate and worried that his public speaking engagements would dry up. But after the campaign raised money and she learned that it would not hurt his earning potential, she became a fierce advocate for the cause, two of the sources told The Daily Beast.
Hershel Walker and Children
Hershel Walker has four children: three sons and a daughter. He has publicly criticized absentee fathers, particularly in Black families, and has spoken out about his relationship with his son Christian.
After The Daily Beast reported Tuesday that he had a 10-year-old child whose mother sued him to get child support, Walker admitted Thursday he has two more children the public does not know about. He has a 13-year-old son by one woman and an adult daughter by another.
He has not been active in their lives, according to The Daily Beast. He has sent them Christmas and birthday gifts, but he hasn’t been involved in their day-to-day life.
His campaign said it was “uncomfortable” with the revelations, but didn’t comment on how many children he has. They also pointed to a custody battle over his own two children as proof that he was acting in a double standard.
