Poking fun at haters. Patrick Mahomes’ wife, Brittany Mahomes (née Matthews), isn’t afraid to fire back at trolls when it comes to their relationship and family.
During an Instagram Story Q&A on Sunday, April 16, one user accused the former soccer player, 27, of being a “gold digger.” In response, she hilariously joked back, “I wish I dug and found gold.”
Brittany and Patrick, 27, have been together since 2012 and tied the knot after a nearly two-year-long engagement in March 2022. The couple became parents with the birth of their daughter, Sterling Sky, now 2, in February 2021, and later welcomed their son, Patrick “Bronze” Lavon Mahomes III, 4 months, in November 2022.
While answering more fan responses, the Texas native addressed other questions about her and the Kansas City Chiefs quarterback’s relationship, including one which read, “How do you deal with all the women trying to get after your husband?” Noting that it’s “really sad” to see “how disrespectful some women are,” Brittany said she simply brushes off her husband’s female attention.
They are a waist [sic] of my time & not going to disturb my peace,” she wrote on Sunday, before adding, “BUT I did use to have a very had time and get extremely annoyed. But I am now to a point where I could care less!”
The high school sweethearts got engaged after more than eight years together in September 2020, the same day Patrick received his first Super Bowl ring. #RingSZN,” the athlete captioned pics from his and Brittany’s proposal via Instagram, which took place in a VIP Box at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri. Patrick decorated the location with dozens of flowers and candles, as well as an illuminated “Will You Marry Me?” sign.
Brittany has previously clapped back at criticism regarding herself and the football player. In October 2021, the businesswoman complained via Twitter after the Chiefs lost a game to the Buffalo Bills, writing, “Refs are never in our favor. Never.” Though her comment garnered some angry attention from fans, she later doubled down on her words by adding, “I said what I said. Y’all so mad.”
