Ahmad Rashad, an NBA sportscaster, and his wife of five years, Sale Johnson, are trying to negotiate a divorce settlement after being separated for several months.
Johnson sources she has grown weary of the friendship between Rashad and NBA legend Michael Jordan, as well as golfer Tiger Woods. Woods lives in Jupiter Island nearby the $5 million home in the luxurious Bears Club in Jupiter that Rashad and Johnson share, while Jordan is soon to be living in a newly-built, 37,000-foot establishment within the Bears Club community.
However, sources from Rashad’s camp said that the reason for the divorce is because the love between the two has merely run its course.
Johnson is a former fashion model and ex-wife of New York Jets owner Woody Johnson.
The couple have been together since 2005.
Rashad and Johnson’s property at the Bears Club, a fancy enclave developed by golf legend Jack Nicklaus, is owned solely by Johnson. Rashad also owns a $350,000-house in the nearby Palm Beach Gardens gated community of Frenchman’s Creek.
Rashad, born Robert Earl Moore, converted to Islam in 1972. His last name comes from his mentor in St. Louis, Rashad Khalifa.
Rashad was a wide receiver with the St. Louis Cardinals, which is now the Arizona Cardinals, where he played for two seasons. He then played for the Buffalo Bills from 1974 to 1976 followed by the Minnesota Vikings from 1976 to 1982 where he earned four Pro Bowl selections from 1978 to 1981.
After his football career, he covered NFL and NBA televised contests as a studio anchor and game reporter for NBC and ABC, as well as hosting NBA “Inside Stuff.” He also has hosted the video-clip show Real TV in 2000, the reality show Celebrity Mole, the game show Caesars Challenge along with co-host Dan Doherty, and NBA Access with Ahmad Rashad on the ABC network.
