6:35 PM PT — Bre Tiesi says she never intentionally meant to request spousal support from Johnny — and claims her lawyers simply made a mistake when filing her divorce petition.
In fact, her attorney, Arthur H. Barens, just sent us a statement admitting the error.
“Our firm wishes to make it clear that [Bre] is not seeking either spousal support or property of any kind from Mr. Manziel, but rather solely the dissolution of their marital relationship”
“Inadvertently, in the original petition a box was marked referencing that Ms. Manziel was seeking spousal support. In fact, an Amended Petition has been filed removing that check-mark and making it clear that nothing either property or support is being sought by Ms. Manziel.”
Johnny Football could become Johnny Spousal Support … at least, that’s what his estranged wife Bre Tiesi is going for.
TMZ Sports has obtained Bre’s divorce petition in which she specifically asks the judge to award her spousal support … despite separating after only a year.
In the docs, Bre says they got married on March 10, 2018, and she lists the date of separation as March 24, 2019 … which is interesting.
We’ve learned … Bre was in Bali on a girls’ trip with friends on the date of the split — and Bre has publicly accused Manziel of “breaking vows.”
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out what she’s implying … that he cheated on her while she was away. In the docs, she cites “irreconcilable differences.”
So, let’s get down to the money …
Obviously, Bre doesn’t have a claim to any of the NFL cash Manziel made BEFORE they were married … but she could be entitled to the money he made during their union.
Remember, Johnny played in the Canadian Football League after he tied the knot — from May 2018 until he was cut and banned from the league in Feb. 2019.
Unclear how much cash Manziel made in the CFL, but that could factor in to a potential settlement and possibly into a spousal support deal.
Tiesi will likely argue she became accustomed to a lavish lifestyle — and she believes Manziel should fork over money so she can continue to live that way.
Will a judge agree? Maybe, maybe not … but this could get very interesting.
Oh, and Bre also wants Johnny to pay her attorney’s fees.
