Arizona Cardinals safety Adrian Wilson caught a lot of heat when fans saw him dating Khloe Kardashian best friend Malika Haqq on “Khloe and Lamar,” because last they’d checked, he was a married man.
With a little help from Khloe, Malika decided to end her relationship with Adrian because she ultimately felt like she was keeping him away from his family.
Well, Adrian is speaking with Essence Magazine about his feelings on being portrayed as a cheater on the show and reveals that he just renewed his vows to his Wife earlier this month.
Adrian decided to reconcile with his wife, Alicia, and give her the “wedding of her dreams” in Maui on March 11th. The couple renewed their vows in front of 60 of their friends and family during a beach ceremony–with 2 gown changes from Alicia.
Adrian Wilson on accusations he “cheated” with Malika on “Khloe and Lamar”:
“We were separated for six months. That’s what everybody doesn’t understand. We were separated for a while. Getting back together was something that we had to talk about for a very long time. We talked some times all night long and into the next morning — talking about what needed to change. We realized they weren’t really big things; they were just things we needed to work on as a couple.”
Adrian Wilson on whether or not his experience dating Malika had any affect on his reconciliation with his wife Alicia:
“I don’t think there’s anything like true love. I’ve known my wife since middle school. I don’t think there’s anything stronger than knowing the other person the way we know each other. My wife did her thing; I did my thing. We were apart. Whatever. It was never really about any other person, it was about us individually.”
Adrian Wilson on how he felt he was portrayed on “Khloe and Lamar” and the negative backlash he received:
“The whole episode attacked my character, and it was shown in a way that reflected the opposite of who I really am. But that’s cool; that’s what they do. Am I mad? Sure. But at the end of the day, that’s not what is most important to me. It’s no longer on my mind. I told my wife all about it and about everything that happened before the show even aired. She was well-prepared for everything — for the backlash and all that stuff.”
Malika & Adrian
Well I’m going to keep it real, I’m #TeamAlicia, because I knew her personally, and she is sweet as pie.
