So flash back to Wednesday night, Cubs game is in full swing at Wrigley Field. If you didn’t know who Addison Russell was, he is a shortstop for the Chicago Cubs. He married his longtime Gf in Jan 2016 and have a son together. Addison does have an another child from a previous relationship.
Well, last night during the Cubs vs Marlins his wife Melisa posted a photo on her Instagram that had social media going crazy!
Check it out for yourself!
Seems to me like there is trouble in paradise for these 2. But just when you thought that was it.
AY DIOS MIO!
This woman is the BFF of Melisa Russell, those are some strong allegations towards the Cubs beloved SS. Hitting a woman is never okay, but also airing out your dirty laundry on social media is never a good idea. Honestly, I feel like her friend didn’t need to post this on social media, it’s a bit childish for my taste.
Once it’s on the web, it’s there forever!
Melisa didn’t stop there, Nope!

By mid-morning Thursday many media & sports media outlets were running the story. It was also known that MLB will be investigating abuse allegations against SS Addison Russell.
Addison released a statement Thursday afternoon, he didn’t play in Thursday night’s game. No other info was given as of Friday morning. Addison is available to play tonight but is not in the lineup.
“Any allegation I have abused my wife is false and hurtful,” Russell said in a statement, via Big League Stew. “For the well-being of my family, I’ll have no further comment.”
The Chicago Cubs released a statement as well, read below
We shall see what comes about the investigation. These were serious allegations this friend of Melisa’s posted about and I hope isn’t true. I will update once more details come about.
Sound off in the comments guys!
