NY Knicks star Raymond Felton and Ariane Felton

NY Knicks star guard Raymond Felton's LSLH wife, Ariane Raymondo-Felton, is filing for divorce less than 19 months after the couple wed. Felton's game has suffered all season due to his personal problems at home. In fact, his season has been so bad that Coach Woodson is considering trading him.

On their wedding day Felton, 29, was so smitten with Ariane's light skin and long hair that he said, “Beautiful as ever, from the first day I met her. I’m going to take care of her. You have my word. I promise you. No matter what it is, I’m always there for you. I love you.”

The short duration of their marriage indicates that either the Dopamine has faded or she was never in Love with him, and was just biding her time until she catalogued and inventoried all of his assets.
