Dwayne Haskins’ parents say they won’t be at the funeral as they’ve never met wife Kalabrya, who “met the NFL star at the Vegas casino.”

THE parents of the late NFL player Dwayne Haskins did not attend their son’s funeral on Friday because of issues with his wife. Kalabrya Gondrezick-Haskins.

The former Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback was reportedly involved in an altercation with his wife last year, in which she was accused of punching Haskins at a Las Vegas hotel and casino.

A statement from a spokesman for the Haskins family, released on ESPN, said: “We never met or spoke to the woman, and we didn’t want our son’s funeral service to be the place where we first met her times.”

The 24-year-old Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback died on the morning of April 9 after being hit by a dump truck while reportedly walking on a restricted-access freeway to avoid the lanes of Interstate 595 in Southern Palm Beach, Fla. to cross.

A released 911 call from Haskins’ wife, who was in Pittsburgh at the time, later revealed that Haskins had run out of gas and sought help just before the strike. She called 911 after not hearing from him.

Gondrezick-Haskins published a Explanation Last week, the funeral arrangements for the NFL player were detailed, people thanked for their support and asked for respect and privacy while she mourns.

Haskins’ parents, Dwayne Sr. and Tamara Haskins, were reportedly absent from Friday’s service at Allegheny Center Alliance Church in Pittsburgh.

The family told WUSA9 they will be holding two services for their son instead – one on Saturday in New Jersey and the other on Sunday in Maryland.

Most of the current Steelers team attended Gondrezick-Haskins’ 90-minute service, along with Steelers coach Mike Tomlin and former Ohio State coach Urban Meyer.

Haskins’ widow was one of six speakers at the service and draped herself over the coffin after the emotional funeral, ESPN reported.

The couple had been married since March 2021, but the two have reportedly had a “fleeting” relationship since a physical altercation between the pair last July ended with a felony charge.

The NFL star’s wife was arrested after a domestic violence incident at a hotel casino where the two were reportedly renewing their wedding vows.

Gondrezick-Haskins was arrested on July 3 after allegedly causing “significant injuries” to her husband Dwayne, according to a police report, KTNV reported.

An arrest report said the athlete had a split lip, and police officers said they found a piece of a tooth in the bedroom.

He reportedly told a security guard at the hotel that “she hit me and cut my lip open” and the police report said his mouth looked bruised and “most likely dental work would be needed to fix his teeth”.

Haskins had just signed a one-year contract with the Steelers in January and was training with teammates in the area at the time of his death.

He played college football at Ohio State University and was drafted to the Washington Football Team in 2019.
