Elijah Dukes' Divorce Proceedings, Shockingly, Are Getting Nasty

As you probably might expect, the wife of "troubled" Devil Rays outfielder Elijah Dukes is filing for divorce. (This tends to happen when you send your wife's cell phones photos of guns.) She has come up with some not-really-all-that-surprising accusations.


Apparently, Dukes smokes weed every day — which, frankly, might not necessarily be a bad thing — and is doing steroids.

NiShea Dukes, testifying in divorce proceedings, accused her baseball-player husband of smoking marijuana daily and using steroids. Although steroids use remained in question at the end of the 2 1/2 -hour hearing Monday morning, Devil Rays outfielder Elijah Dukes did admit under oath that he smokes marijuana. Judge Kevin Carey ordered Dukes to take random drug tests for marijuana.


We find it amusing that Dukes is accused of using illegal drugs, having a chronic drinking problem and threatening to kill his wife ... and yet the fact that he might have used steroids is the most damning charge that could have been levied at him. You dead, dawg.
