When the Chargers cut Chris Chambers earlier this week, the wide receiver intimated, without giving any details, that it had more to do with off-field issues than a desire to give more playing time to Malcolm Floyd and Legedu Naanee.
Now some details have come to light about the messy situation that Chambers, now a member of the Chiefs, was dealing with in his personal life. Chambers filed for divorce from his wife this summer, a few months after his soon-to-be ex-wife Christina told San Diego police that she was being harassed by a woman named Stacey Saunders. Chambers admitted in court documents that he had a romantic relationship with Saunders and then filed for a restraining order against her.
The San Diego Union-Tribune has the details of Chambers’s allegations against Saunders.
“Beginning in April, Ms. Saunders became aware that our affair, now
broken off, was known to my wife,” Chambers wrote. “Since then she has launched an incessant attack verbally on me, and now my
wife, her mother and sister. All calls, text messages and e-mails are
abusive, vulgar and irrational. They have begun to mention intimate
details of my life such as my son, home address, and family member
The restraining order was never issued because neither Chambers nor Saunders appeared at a hearing on the matter in late June, and Chris Chambers filed for divorce a week later.
Christina Chambers declined to comment when reached by the paper, citing ongoing legal proceedings, while Chris Chambers did not return a call.
