Meet Cindy Grossman, the ex-wife of Heisman Trophy winner Herschel Walker. See photos, video and a biography of Cindy below.
In Herschel Walker’s newly released book, Breaking Free, he reveals the struggles he had with Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID), also formerly known as Multiple Personality Disorder, and how he coped with more than a dozen personalities that almost led him to take his own life.
Cindy Grossman, Walker’s ex-wife, was married to the Georgia standout for 16 years before she even knew about Walker’s condition. Walker’s revelation of his disorder in his new book sheds some light on what went on in their marriage. She told Nightline:
“Well, now it makes perfect sense, because each personality has a different interest. There was also a very sweet, lovable [personality]. That’s the one he told me I married. He told me I didn’t marry Herschel and the next thing I knew, he just kind of raged and he got a gun and put it to my temple.”
As a biography, Cindy Grossman (formerly Cindy DeAngelis), was a track star while at Georgia. She met Herschel when he was icing his ankle in a training room. Together they had one son, Christian Alexander Walker.
