Former UM standout and Super Bowl hero Jeremy Shockey has fumbled his marriage — just eight months after tying the knot.
According to Miami-Dade County court records, local resident Shockey cited irreconcilable differences in the short filing against wife Daniela Cortazar.
A source close to Shockey said the former tight end has an iron-clad pre-nupt. Shockey hung up the phone on Gossip Extra when asked about the divorce.
Until his filing, Shockey managed to keep his marriage fairly below the radar.
His marriage license shows Shockey, 32, and Cortazar, 22, were hitched May 14 by a county clerk in Miami Beach.
“He told me the two of them are going to stay friends,” the source said. “One day, you were talking to him and the next day he was married. He may have rushed into this a little too quickly.”
Shockey, who played for the New York Giants and New Orleans Saints in their respective Super Bowl seasons, spent this season looking for a team.
He lives in a $1.5 million condo on West Avenue in Miami Beach, where he spent months trying to convince the public that he wasn’t the snitch who exposed the Saints’ bounty scandal.
Neither lawyers who represent the former lovebirds commented.
Sex in the state
We knew Floridians were pretty frisky, but just how much so has been quantified by the owners of pornhub.com, one of the country’s biggest video sex websites.
Florida, the free site’s statistics show, produced the fourth most traffic in 2012, a whopping 128,516,380 visits.
For a population of just over 19 million, that’s some serious porn watching — on just one of hundreds of sites!
In case you need to know, only New York, California and Texas did better.
Meanwhile, pornhub.com says, each Floridian clicked on 7.8 video clips during his/her 11-minute average visit.
Favorite time to check out the action: between 11 p.m. and midnight.
And the most searched videos from the Sunshine State? Anything with lesbians!
Regionally, users from Miami-Dade and Broward are the randiest, with 37,120,635 visits in 2012.
Next come Tampa-St. Petersburg, Orlando-Melbourne and West Palm Beach.
Floridians give it a rest on Christmas Day, Thanksgiving and Easter Sunday. The holidays generated the least traffic of the year originating from state.
Wise guys do good
There probably haven’t been this many wise guys in South Florida since the filming of Donnie Brasco.
Nearly a dozen actors known for playing mobsters are expected at Miami Beach’s Castle Hotel on Friday morning for the kickoff of an initiative to save small-town, single-screen movie theaters.
Among them: The Sopranos’ Frank Vincent and Vincent Pastore, GoodFellas’ Mike Starr and Debi Mazar, Witness to the Mob’s Tom Sizemore, Carlito’s Way’s Chuck Zito and more.
The crew is in on the creation of a nonprofit by reformed jewel thief and writer Walter Shaw that’ll raise money to buy digital projection equipment for small theaters that can’t afford it.
“In 2013, about 3,000 small-town cinemas will shut down,” said project spokesman Glen Calder.
Why? This is the year when Hollywood goes all digital and stops shipping old-style film reels to older movie theaters.
Either those theaters come up with $100,000 to upgrade, says Calder, or they’ll close.
