The split between NBA TV analyst and former NFL star Ahmad Rashad, and his multimillionaire socialite wife of eight years is getting downright ugly.
Rashad, 63, is no longer allowed in the fancy Jupiter community of The Bears Club after wife Sale Johnson asked security guards not to let him in unless she approves it, a Club insider tells Gossip Extra.
Sale Johnson, the ex-wife of Johnson & Johnson heir Woody Johnson, owns a $5 million-home at the Club developed by golf legend Jack Nicklaus around a world-class golf course.
According to records, the five-bedroom house is considered to be Rashad and Johnson’s marital home, even if the deed is solely under her name.
Ex-fashion model Johnson’s move came on the day last week when Gossip Extra revealed exclusively that the two were negotiating a settlement despite the fact that the divorce has yet to be filed.
“Sale cut Ahmad off from all the clubs they’re members of, and had the fob that gets him through the guard gate at the Bears Club deactivated,” the source said. “Actually, he got through and went to the clubhouse. But the guards asked him to leave and escorted him out.
“Ahmad and Sale are not on speaking terms right now. Things are being done through lawyers. They barely had a marriage anyway. He’s always gone with the basketball thing.”
Rashad and Johnson were married in 2007. He had just gone through a public split with actress Phylicia Rashad while Sale made a reported $100 million in her divorce from New York Jets part-owner Woody.
A second source, meanwhile, is telling me that Sale is armed with an iron-clad pre-nup that won’t pay Rashad anything once the divorce is final.
His fortune is estimated at about $8 million.
Last week, the New York Post reported that the bad blood between Rashad and Johnson started when Johnson allegedly tried to ban Rashad from seeing buds Michael Jordan, the NBA legend who’s building a home near Johnson’s pad at the Club, and golfer Tiger Woods, who lives in nearby Jupiter Island.
Neither Johnson nor Rashad returned calls for comment.
