Ashlyn Harris has a lot to say to internet trolls about what was happening behind the scenes when she and Ali Krieger broke up, and she started dating Sophia Bush — and she says there was absolutely no cheating.
The former soccer star says she’s tried to remain silent about the details, but Saturday — due to the rumors of infidelity, she decided to share it all. She says, “Let me be clear: I did not step out on my marriage. I was always faithful in my marriage, if not always totally happy. Like in many partnerships, there was work and therapy and processing done.”
In her Instagram post, Ashlyn added the split was well planned out — “We spent the entire summer working to tackle the separation and divorce steps outlined for us by our therapists, lawyers, and our shared agency.”
Ashlyn says they were betrayed by someone who leaked their breakup news before they intended to go public at the end of Ali’s soccer season.
As we previously reported, Ashlyn started dating Sophia less than a month after filing for divorce from Ali in September. Krieger and Harris married in late 2019 in Miami.
Ali seemed to fuel the rumor about infidelity being the reason for their split when she wrote on Instagram, “Preparing for playoffs while in my Beyoncé Lemonade era” — and, of course, the “Lemonade” album chronicles Bey and Jay-Z‘s relationship issues after she discovered he cheated on her.
While video showed Ashlyn and Sophia seemingly getting flirty during a June event in Cannes — Ashlyn’s new revelation makes it seem like she and Ali were done at that point … just not publicly.
She says she and Ali are now focused on co-parenting their 2 young children.
Ashlyn turned off the comments in her post — in which she details her mental health struggles after getting flooded with cheating accusations and worse. She captioned it with a single black heart.
