Bills Mario Williams is suing his ex-fiance, Erin Marzouki for $785,000, the cost of her engagement ring, claiming she was using him for money and never intended on marrying him. Per the Associated Press, Marzouki has counter sued claiming that Williams got cold feet and told her and her family members that he wanted her to keep the ring.
Marzouki’s counter suit states Williams made it “abundantly clear in writing” that he wanted her to keep the ring after their last of many breakups in December. And, she said, Williams also communicated his wishes in text messages to her father and brother.
She alleged, Williams broke up with her several times, including a few days after the proposal, when the two were vacationing with family in the Bahamas. Marzouki said, Williams became upset, broke off the engagement and flew home on a privately chartered plane.
Marzouki said, she returned to Texas and gave Williams back the ring. The two, she said, then reconciled in June at which time Marzouki said she urged Williams to “be serious about marriage.”
In accepting the ring, Marzouki said she warned Williams she never would again return the ring regardless of what happened.
Marzouki characterized Williams as someone who “seemed torn” between entering a long-term commitment.
“It appeared to Marzouki that a part of Williams wanted to be married and start a family,” the documents said, “while another part of Williams wanted to continue to live the life of a wealthy bachelor, who could do whatever he wanted, with whomever he wanted, whenever he wanted.”
Marzouki also stated that the credit card charges referenced were actual items for his homes in Texas and Buffalo which she decorated at his benefit. The two met in 2007 when Marzouki worked for the Texans, Williams team at the time.
