Former NFL quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner, Johnny Manziel, will be back on the market as soon as a California judge signs off on his divorce settlement.
In new legal documents, obtained by The Blast, Manziel’s ex, Bre Tiesi, submitted a judgment package on April 1st, detailing the ex-couples divorce settlement. At this point, it is unclear whether or not Bre will receive spousal support or what properties will need to be divided. Johnny and Bre do not have any children together, and they had a short-term marriage, so the settlement should be fairly straightforward.
Manziel and Tiesi were married in a private ceremony in a California courthouse back in March of 2018. Johnny’s wife filed for divorce the next year; in December of 2019, citing irreconcilable differences. The former couple split in March 2019, and they both publicly addressed the break-up at the time. “This is all very, very personal and very sad,” Johnny said. “I appreciate everyone who has been so supportive of both of us and I would just ask that everyone respect our privacy at this difficult time.”
Tiesi took a different stance while addressing fans on social media about Manziel and his behavior. “Vows were broken f money and f u and every other loser on here,” she wrote.
Last month, Manziel launched his podcast, “Ball Don’t Lie.” The former QB dove into his struggle dealing with the overnight fame he experienced after winning the Heisman Trophy and how that affected his career in the NFL. Johnny said he developed a “dangerous mindset” and “felt invincible” because he won the Heisman with a work hard-play hard perspective. In other words, the more partying he did, the more successful he was on the field. He has learned a lot since changing his mindset.

Johnny tackles topics like his 2012 arrest for disorderly conduct and possession of a fake ID following a brawl in College Station and talks about where he went wrong. “Ready to let the truth be known. I found a way to take the journey I’ve lived and articulate that in a positive way. Something that years ago I would have thought was impossible,” he wrote when introducing the podcast to his fans. “We talk life, lessons, and much more. The ball don’t lie…never has never will.”
Johnny seems to be moving forward with his professional career, as well as his personal life.
