Dwayne Haskins’ wife Kalabrya Gondrezick arrested
The wife of Dwayne Haskins has been charged with domestic battery after allegedly knocking out the backup Steelers quarterback’s tooth earlier this month while the couple was in Las Vegas renewing their wedding vows, according to multiple reports.
Kalabrya Gondrezick-Haskins faces a felony charge of battery and domestic violence resulting in bodily harm stemming from the alleged altercation at The Cosmopolitan, according to KTNV.
Gondrezick-Haskins reportedly punched Haskins after they got into an argument over their plans for the evening. Haskins and his friends apparently went to a nightclub without waiting for Gondrezick-Haskins and her friends, who had attended a show earlier in the night.
Haskins, 24, was treated for facial injuries at a local hospital, and officers on the scene reportedly found the missing tooth in the hotel room.
“I want her out of my room,” Haskins told a security officer at The Cosmopolitan following the incident, according to KLAS. “She hit me and cut my lip open.”
Haskins-Gondrezick, a former Michigan State basketball player, told police that the couple married in March and were in the area to renew their vows and celebrate with friends.
Although Haskins-Gondrezick is due in court Aug. 3, the pair seems to have made up.
On Sunday, Haskins shared a photo on Instagram of the couple flashing her apparent wedding ring with the caption, “Couldn’t make you wait forever, for forever. This is forever.”

He uses the nickname and the film’s coming-of-age story as motivation and incorporates it into his personal clothing brand, Kingdom of Pride. His mentor during high school and college was NFL wide receiver Mohamed Sanu, whom he met through Mohamed Jabbie, one of his best friends and Sanu’s nephew. A New Jersey native, Haskins grew up a New York Giants fan.
