“Wouldn’t have made it easy for you” – Andre Agassi’s scathing message to his ex-wife after their short-lived marriage

Apart from his performances, Andre Agassi is also famous for his behavior on the pitch. Unlike his rival Pete Sampras, he was aggressive and expressed his unfiltered emotions during matches. In addition, the American veteran was often involved in arguments with his opponents and referees.

Although people say that a player’s on-pitch temperament and agony over awkward results will not affect his private life. However, that was not the case with the 8-time Grand Slam champion. This was particularly evident during his unstable marriage to Hollywood star Brooke Shields. Speaking of Shields, she once opened up about how difficult her divorce could have been if the elements of her marriage had been different.

Brooke Shields spoke about how her relationship with the eight-time Grand Slam champion fell apart and addressed the ease with which they parted ways. In a 2013 interview, she said: said “I’m divorced. And mine was pretty quick and relatively easy.”

After that she added “But it’s a very interesting thing. Because he said to me: ‘Be glad we don’t have children, otherwise I wouldn’t have made it easy for you.’ And that’s why I’m not here anymore.” Shields rose to fame at the tender age of 12 when he starred in Louis Malle’s film Pretty Baby. She then expanded her reach into modeling, starring in sitcoms such as Suddenly Susan and Lipstick Jungle while having a guest appearance on the famous sitcom FRIENDS.
