Michel has been there for her man, and the couple is facing some unfair treatment? Michel took to her instagram to defend her hubby about being rumored to be cut and ultimatley haxed from the New Orleans all through twitter!
And angry Michel said on instagram
I am so disappointed in the Saints organization & the way they are treating my husband. I understand this is a brutal business but when u have a good guy who works hard & does a lot for the community u would think they would show a little more respect. To verbalize to him that they will release him so at least he can choose the team he wants to spend his last few years in the NFL on & then take it back without a word & try to trade him is f**ked up … I no I have no control over this & God is gonna work it out but in the mean time I’m gon vent & talk s**t. Lol! WhoDat Nation get ready for a ride because the seeds yall front office is planting its not gon be a good look for yall. See the way my God is set up he gets the last say & can get u back better than the Compton Curse out I wanna give these muthaf**kas! #YesICurseAndPraiseGod #OnlyGodCanJudgeMe #IputHisChargeRPicsUpBecauseTheSaintsAintShitForWhatTheyDoin”
