James Harrison’s on/off girlfriend is Beth Tibbott, mother of their children and a leading character in quite the controversial stories we heard about a couple of years ago. Do you remember those? It involved domestic assault and a pit bull biting her and her son, but wouldn’t you like to know more about her? Check out her story, Beth’s photo is on one of our fabulous links and video provided after the jump.
Beth Tibbott’s boyfriend is the 32-year-old linebacker for the Pittsburgh Steelers, born in Akron, Ohio. He went to Coventry High School where he graduated in 1998. Later he went to Kent State and was drafted by the Steelers in 2002. The following year he signed with the Baltimore Ravens and came back to Pittsburgh in 2004. We all remember when the news about his arrest came in 2008, right? His girlfriend and mother of their two sons accused him of hitting her, but who is she?
32 year old Tibbott, from Ohio, was born on March 10, 1978. She works in the real state business. In 2000 she enrolled in Mount Aloysius College, got her Bachelor’s Degree in Behavioral Science in 2002 and in 2007 she received her Juris Doctorate degree from the Duquesne University School of Law.
She became the proud mother of her son James Harrison III in 2007 and two years later her little boy Henry was born. On Saturday, March 7th, 2008 Tibbott made a 911 phone call requesting help after her boyfriend slammed the bathroom door where she was hiding and allegedly hit her in the face while she was making the 911 call on her phone. He was charged with assault and criminal mischief charges, but on April 3rd the charges were dropped after he went to anger management classes and counseling.
In May 2009 we heard once again the very sad news concerning Beth and her eldest son James III, it all happened when Tibbott was with her son, her 4 year old pit bull Patron was playing in the back yard of their house in Franklin Park when all of the sudden Patron was biting James on his leg and he started to cry. Beth and a friend who was there, Lisa Ripi, ran towards him to get the dog off of the 18 month old toddler. Beth manged to take the baby away but got bitten by the dog as well as her friend. After help arrived to their house James, Beth and her friend were rushed to the hospital where they were treated with multiple cuts.
These days Tibbott is highly involved in the James Harrison Family Foundation, in fact she is Chief Executive Officer. Additionally, she is an attorney at Tibbott & Richardson, P.C, but also a caring mother and loving girlfriend.
