The 2019-20 NFL season had Antonio Brown‘s name constantly in the news, and for all the wrong reasons. While the All-Pro wide receiver’s relationship with the Oakland Raiders franchise led up to an extremely public break-up, and things were even more ugly when he was let go by the New England Patriots, his off-the-field relationship with girlfriend Chelsie Kyriss initially remained strong.
After Brown was accused of rape by Britney Taylor, a former trainer for the wide receiver who filed a federal lawsuit in the Southern District of Florida, signs of trouble between him and his longtime girlfriend started to make headlines.
On January 13, TMZ reported the cops were called to Brown’s home in Florida around 10 a.m. after a dispute with Kyriss became violent. The former NFL star told police that he had evicted Kyriss from his home, and only allowed her on the property to pick up their children for school
Chelsie, 30, has three children with Brown and two older children, Kellen and Brooklyn Green, from before she started dating Brown. Brown also has two children from a previous relationship.
Brown told police that Kyriss tried to steal one of his cars on Monday, and yelled “B****, you don’t drive Bentleys. This is not your life,” according to TMZ. The 31-year-old wide-receiver started screaming at the officers about how they don’t know how to do their job, and screamed at Kyriss to “have a bag of d**ks.”
Here’s what you need to know about Antonio Brown’s ex-girlfriend, Chelsie Kyriss…
1. Antonio and Chelsie Have Been On and Off For Years
Chelsie has been with Brown through all the crazy ups and downs of his controversial career, including his reality TV stints on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars and a brief appearance on The Masked Singer. While he played with the Pittsburgh Steelers, she befriended many of the team’s wives and girlfriends, including quarterback Ben Roethlisberger’s wife, Ashley.
She traveled to Oakland and then to New England with their children in tow during the NFL’s 2019-20 season alone.
2. She Has Three Boys with Antonio
Chelsie and Antonio have three incredibly adorable children together, and they both constantly share photos of their pride and joy on Instagram. They welcomed Autonomy in 2014, Ali the following year, and she gave birth to their youngest son, Apollo, on August 1, 2017. Brown dated Instagram model Jena Frumes before reuniting with Chelsie, who was pregnant with Apollo during their break, and they were officially back together prior to the birth of their newest baby boy.
Chelsie’s kids with Brown all have the initials AB, Antonio Brown Jr, Autonomy Brown, and Apollo Brown, and they all have their own Instagram accounts. To celebrate Chelsie’s 30th birthday, Brown took their family on a boat trip through Lake Tahoe, and for Brown’s 31st birthday, they all traveled to Paris.

Because why not have matching cars, when Brown purchased Chelsie a silver Porsche, she posted a picture on Instagram with the caption, “Twin turbos!” The couple also recently took a trip to Hawaii over the summer, riding around the Big Island on mopeds and hanging out in floaties in the pool.
Life isn’t always big presents and vacation for Chelsie and Antonio. In January, Chelsie accused the NFL player of domestic violence, putting a negative spotlight on the already controversial player, whose relationship with the Steelers’ player was deteriorating at the time. The fight reportedly took place in Hollywood, Florida, however, no arrest was ever made.
4. Chelsie Supported Brown’s ‘Boomin Business’ Despite Relationship Setbacks
Kyriss supported her baby daddy, despite him not always being in headlines for the best reasons. However, things became personal in June 2018. He wrote on Instagram:

The couple reconciled afterward, and things appears to be going well for now. Chelsie recently accompanied Brown during his appearance in Hollywood on Late Night with Jimmy Kimmel, and she used Brown’s famous tagline to caption a selfie of her and her man: “Boomin” with a heart emoji.
