Las Vegas Aces star guard Kelsey Plum and New York Giants tight end Darren Waller filed for divorce in Clark County District Court in Las Vegas on Tuesday.

Plum, 29, and Waller, 31, were married in March 2023 after dating forreportedly one year.

"I'm devastated," Plum wrote on social media. "I walked through fire for that man, but now I see it's time to go. God has given me such an incredible life, and I'm truly so grateful for the profound love from my family and friends. One day I'll share my story, today is not that day."

A two-time WNBA champion with the Aces, Plum began dating Waller while the latter played for the Las Vegas Raiders.

Plum was the first overall pick of the 2017 WNBA draft. She also won a gold medal at the Tokyo Olympics in women's 3x3 basketball.

Waller made the Pro Bowl in 2020 while playing with the Raiders. He reportedly has yet to decide whether to play in the 2024 season or retire from professional football.
