I know all the details aren’t in on what happened with the tragic shooting of ex-Tennessee Titans star Steve McNair. And some deets may never be known because they are only known by two deceased people. But I don’t think it’s too early to ask: what was this man thinking?
Picking up a then 19-year-old waitress at Dave & Busters? Providing her a 2007 Escalade? Spending an inordinate amount of time with her? This while you have a wife and three kids at home?
Who knows? Maybe Steve and his wife Mechelle were getting a divorce and did not live in Beaver Cleaverland like we first thought when we heard of his death. Their home was reportedly on the market for $3 million. And who knows? Maybe Steve led Sahel Kazemi, 20, to believe that the two would be together after his divorce became final. At least the latter is what a member of Sahel’s family claims.
But had divorce papers even been filed? Not in Nashville, according to reports.I’m not saying a woman should snoop, but ladies if a man tells you he is getting a divorce, ask to see the papers. Or better yet, ask which city or county they are filed in and go to the courthouse and pull them yourself. These things are public record. If he gets offended that you would ask for proof then that’s on him. In the end he’ll realize that you’re one smart cookie to not take everyone’s word.
Sahel, whose mother was killed in their native Iran, is already being painted as a naive young woman by her family, who says she would never even hurt a bug so there is no way she killed Steve and turned the gun on herself. If not her then who is culprit? Sahel’s ex-boyfriend? The wife of the ex-NFL star? Seems doubtful considering the police aren’t searching for suspects.
Steve’s widow Mechelle McNair, the mother of three of Steve’s four sons and reportedly distraught, hasn’t been heard from. I’m sure she could shed plenty of light on this situation because the wife is never the last to know. Just ask South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford’s wife Jenny. It’s interesting that police didn’t even put in the affidavit that Steve was in the car when his lover was arrested for DUI the other night. I don’t know if that’s customary or if the cops were protecting their hometown hero from a scandal.
Well, there’s no protecting him now. The scandal is at full brew. Autopsy results are due this afternoon so we should know a lot more soon. What we may never know is what was Steve McNair thinking?
