Johnny Manziel Divorce
Calls Off Spousal Support Request
… It Was a Mistake!

6:35 PM PT — Bre Tiesi says she never intentionally meant to request spousal support from Johnny — and claims her lawyers simply made a mistake when filing her divorce petition.
In fact, her attorney, Arthur H. Barens, just sent us a statement admitting the error.
“Our firm wishes to make it clear that [Bre] is not seeking either spousal support or property of any kind from Mr. Manziel, but rather solely the dissolution of their marital relationship”
“Inadvertently, in the original petition a box was marked referencing that Ms. Manziel was seeking spousal support. In fact, an Amended Petition has been filed removing that check-mark and making it clear that nothing either property or support is being sought by Ms. Manziel.”
TMZ Sports has obtained Bre’s divorce petition in which she specifically asks the judge to award her spousal support … despite separating after only a year.
379 days to be exact.
In the docs, Bre says they got married on March 10, 2018, and she lists the date of separation as March 24, 2019 … which is interesting.
We’ve learned … Bre was in Bali on a girls’ trip with friends on the date of the split — and Bre has publicly accused Manziel of “breaking vows.”
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out what she’s implying … that he cheated on her while she was away. In the docs, she cites “irreconcilable differences.”
So, let’s get down to the money …
Obviously, Bre doesn’t have a claim to any of the NFL cash Manziel made BEFORE they were married … but she could be entitled to the money he made during their union.
Unclear how much cash Manziel made in the CFL, but that could factor in to a potential settlement and possibly into a spousal support deal.
Tiesi will likely argue she became accustomed to a lavish lifestyle — and she believes Manziel should fork over money so she can continue to live that way.
Will a judge agree? Maybe, maybe not … but this could get very interesting.
Oh, and Bre also wants Johnny to pay her attorney’s fees.
Stay tuned …
