Buffalo Bills player Mario Williams texted about suicide, narcotics use in November

  1. Rob Cypher
    Buffalo Bills pass-rusher Mario Williams mentioned committing suicide and taking narcotics -- and his ex-fiancee found the threat credible enough to plan an intervention -- the Houston Chronicle has reported.

    The eyebrow-raising allegations were made by Erin Marzouki's attorney, Tony Buzbee, who released texts purportedly sent by Williams to Marzouki in November, when Williams was playing some of his best football for the Bills.

    Williams is suing Marzouki for the return of a 10.04-carat diamond engagement ring estimated to be worth $785,000. A mediation hearing was held today, but the parties were unable to reach an agreement.

    And the saga got uglier for Williams today.

    Buzbee released ominous texts Williams allegedly sent Nov. 11, the day the Bills suffered a heartbreaking loss to the New England Patriots in Foxborough, Mass.

    "I took 3 hydrocodones this morning and no one knows," the Chronicle reported Williams as texting to Marzouki. "I'm going to take 2 more on the plane and fade away."

    Another text read: "No money in the world should leave me with suicidal thoughts."

    Marzouki reportedly didn't take Williams' texts as a joke.

    "You told me you're having suicidal thoughts," Marzouki wrote to Williams, according to the Chronicle. "Clearly me & you don't need to talk after every mean thing you said to be, but I'm going to tell DD to call you or something BC you went above and beyond saying suicidal thoughts, taking pills. Someone that you trust needs to intervene."

    Neither the Bills nor Williams' agent, Ben Dogra, immediately responded to requests seeking comment.

    Hydrocodone...this is being used against him in court as a possible way to kill himself...wow

    Sounds like he was being a little dramatic there...5 hydrocodone pills (probably Vicodin ES [7.5 hydro/325 APAP] at best) isn't going to do much to a guy who nearly weighs 300 lbs and probably already takes them on a daily basis, IMO.

    its not a criminal case, its a civil suit as far as i know and her attorneys are just throwing mud, he is suing her for a huge ring he gave her to get married and she wouldn't give it back after she dumped him.

    sounded more like to me he was trying to say he was so depressed he was popping pills and he was thinking about suicide.

    drug abuse could get him some serious time suspended from the NFL and lose a lot of money for the time he cant play, thats the biggest thing he'd be worried about, each week a player misses he loses like a 16th of his salary (16 games in a regular season) in addition to making bonus incentives much harder to reach because of missed play time.

    this whole thing started when his ex fiance broke things off and would give back the huge expensive diamond ring he gave her. my guess is those texts are old enough he wouldn't fail a test and could say he wanted sympathy from her and said that stuff, plus those players get injured enough many could have pain prescriptions from a legit doctor.

    Mario had some big expectations to live up to when he was signed by Buffalo to a contract of 96 Million over 6 years in 2012. I don't want to jump to conclusions but his game play would be indicative of someone high on something. Dude has been a dud.

    Mario Williams says texts to ex were blown out of proportion

    Bills defensive end Mario Williams is embroiled in a lawsuit with his ex-fiancée, attempting to force her to return a $785,000 engagement ring.

    As part of that lawsuit, his ex-fiancée has released text messages in which Williams discusses taking prescription painkillers and having thoughts of suicide.

    But Williams says that’s nothing for anyone to worry about.

    “I could really care less. I mean, all it is is allegations, text messages or what not, whatever information blown out of proportion. I mean it’s completely out of context,” Williams said of the released text messages, via WGR.

    Williams says that when he mentioned “suicidal thoughts” in a text message, he was “just venting.” Asked about the suicides of Junior Seau and Jovan Belcher, Williams was quick to answer, “Dude, I’m nowhere near that position.”

    Williams also said he only uses painkillers as directed by the team’s medical staff.

    “Anything I take is 100 percent prescribed, given from here,” Williams said, referring to the doctors at the Bills’ facility.

    Blown out of proportion or not, these are the kinds of embarrassing stories that tend to come out when people get involved in litigation with their exes. That’s why it’s wise to take it slowly with romantic relationships, and wiser still to buy a more sensible engagement ring, and save the $785,000 jewelry for the 50th anniversary.

    That is exactly how I understood it.

    Just a thought: much as I love technology, the resulting lack of privacy--especially for public figures--really irks me. Granted, he should have known better than to text anything he didn't want to end up in a tabloid (or unfortunately even legitimate media), but who can live a "perfect" life in a fishbowl? (whatever "perfect" even is...)

    Kinda makes me happy to just be one of the masses, living under the radar...

    Hmmm...so which came first, the hydrocodone or the prescription? :p

    I dunno. I think fame just gets to people. Especially sport stars as they're under so much pressure to perform apart from the usual stress arising from a life of fame. Dodge reporters, protect self and kin from stalkers and other crazy people, attend this and that function, do this and that television or radio shows, read this and that sensation about yourself, stave of hordes of fans when you go for a bite and so on. I suspect some end up having these perfectly calculated routes to practise, mall and home in order to avoid public scrutiny. Like a prison almost. Only bigger. I'd take some pills too, just to break the mundane routine.

    As for the ring? I'm not sure if the law agrees but she should return the ring. It's custom and only right since she broke it off, not him. An engagement ring is not a gift, it's a promissory symbol of a commitment to marry. That he was willing to spend than kind of cash on a ring begs comprehension. Next time wait until you're married. She saw you coming alright. I bet there were no suicide plans. She only needed a reason to scram with a ring worth nearly $800K. Don't the USA have laws against revealing private information?

    holy crap, I didn't even see the part about this "suicide threat" consisting of 5 pills, what a whiny looser!

    Football and other contact sports, does terrible things to people. The number of drunken hit and runs, rapes, animal fighting, spousal abuse cases, that have happened in Buffalo alone in the past few years is just ridiculous. I understand that there ARE good sports players that don't hurt other people, but the number of trainwrecks coming out of those industries is frightening.

    I really wonder what anyone getting romantically involved with a sports "star" is possibly thinking, other then "CHA-CHING!"

    there is an espn "30 for 30" episode about how all those players end up broke after making tens of millions of dollars.

    a lot of it has to do with the mentality of many of the athletes many come from working class or poverty and when they are 22 coming out of college and are a multi millionare over night many feel like they need to bring along all their friends who are still in the old neighborhood along for the ride in addition to their families. than many of the friends and family feel they have money from the person coming to them and knowingly or not exploit the athlete for money.

    of corse throwing in all the women who are trying to either marry or get pregnant purposely just for a free meal ticket on the gravy train.

    when the athlete begins to realize they are being used by they loved ones its not that surprising how fucked up in the head they can get.

    also many start spending insane amounts of money on the stupidest things and the fact that as an nfl player their window to make money and stay healthy is about an average of 3 years and than those huge checks stop coming and now that shark tank built into the mantle which costs ten grand a month to maintain starts to seem pointless in hindsight. one of the guys interviewed said that he had a huge shark and fish tank which costed 10 or 20 thousand dollars a month to feed and maintain.
