Terrell Suggs' wife files for divorce, accuses him of infidelity

Terrell Suggs' wife files for divorce, claims Ravens outside linebacker cheated.

Terrell Suggs' wife of two years has filed for divorce, accusing the Ravens outside linebacker of adultery -- an accusation he denies. 

Candace Suggs requests full custody of the couple's two children who are ages 6 and 7, child support and alimony in papers she filed in Baltimore County Circuit Court in late December. Her filing states that the "Defendant has committed adultery during the marriage and the Plaintiff has not forgiven, or condoned the adulterous conduct."

An attorney for Terrell Suggs said that he remained faithful to his wife until they separated nearly a year ago.

"The allegations she makes concerning Mr. Suggs occurred  well after they separated," said attorney Thomas C. Ries. "They were no longer in love and they no longer wanted to be married to one another."

The former Candace Williams has previously accused Terrell Suggs of domestic violence. 

In 2009, before they were married, she filed a request for a protective order claiming he had hit her and spilled bleach on her and their then-1-year-old son. She later requested that the order be rescinded after the couple reconciled.

In late 2012, Candace Suggs accused him of punching her in the neck and dragging her behind his car as he drove away with their two children. At that time, Terrell Suggs was ordered to turn over seven guns, including an AK-47, because of the temporary protective order granted by the Baltimore County Circuit Court.

Less than a month later, the couple married. Candace Suggs again asked for the protective order to be lifted.

Ries said that the couple had signed a confidential pre-nuptial agreement that dictates the terms of the divorce. An attorney for Candace Suggs did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Terrell Suggs filed a response to the request for divorce in court last week in which he asked for joint custody of the children.
