Gotham Gossipist: Tiki Barber Says He Can't Afford Divorce Settlement

By Kimberly Rae Miller

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- Tiki Barber is facing his most intimidating opponent yet: His estranged wife, Ginny Cha.

Barber wreaked havoc on his home life and short-lived career as a morning news anchor last year, when he allegedly cheated on his pregnant wife with an NBC intern.

What can we say? The intern, Traci Lynn Johnson, was hot. Barber proposed to the now 24-year-old, over the summer.  Her career has  taken quite a turn since she managed to snag one of the Barber twins, as she's no longer serving coffee to on-set celebrities, but instead posing in very little on the cover of Maxim magazine.

Ginny Cha is another story.  When you dump your wife of 11 years while she's pregnant with twins, you can expect a little payback.  And it's pay she wants.

The divorce proceedings between the two have no end in sight. Cha is demanding some serious bank for the four children she had with Barber.

But the NFL running back says he can't afford it.  After all, he did lose that gig on the the Today Show.

According to Page Six, all of this divorce stuff is putting some serious kinks in Traci's dream wedding plans.  The new couple was planning a May wedding at Barber's Hampton's home, and have already started printing invitations.

The only problem: They can't legally tie any knots until the groom is officially divorced.  That may take a while as Cha seems to be in no rush to finalize divorce proceedings.

Don't worry Traci, Tiki may not be able to flip the bill for his four kids, but I'm pretty sure he can afford to reprint the invitations.
