MLB All-Star Addison Russell was called out by his wife on Instagram for cheating


Chicago Cubs infielder Addison Russell has some explaining to do.

Russell's 23-year-old wife, Melisa Russell, shared a photo of herself to Instagram Wednesday night accusing her husband of cheating and lying, the Daily Mail reported.

She captioned the photo: "Being free to be able to make your own choices for your own happiness beats being cheated on, lied to, & disrespected any day."

The post has since been deleted.


Here is a screenshot of the post when it was posted. It had roughly 4,000 likes.

The couple have a child together. 

Melisa later tweeted that she wanted her Instagram post to "empowers and inspires other women to 'not take shit' from anyone, regardless of who they are."
