She first got acquainted with Jimbo Fisher in 1987 when Jimbo was a student of Sanford University where he also played college football. During such time, she was regularly seen at Florida State games and often took to her Twitter handle to show support for the Seminoles. After becoming Jimbo Fisher’s girlfriend for over a year, the duo exchanged marital vows on 22nd July 1989.
During the course of the marriage, they welcomed two sons named Trey Fisher and Ethan Fisher. However, after staying married for years, Jimbo Fisher filed for divorce from his wife of over two decades as the union hit rock bottom. Although the couple stated the reason behind the marriage annulment as irreconcilable differences, it was later revealed that Candi Fisher was involved in a number of alleged extramarital affairs with former National Football League player, Taylor Jacobs and former FSU tennis ace, Owen Long.
This was discovered during the legal proceedings when the details of her communications with the aforementioned individuals through calls and text messages were requested by the court. Candi Fisher, however, refrained from providing the required details instead she opted to sign the divorce papers hours later. As a result, all her initial divorce negotiations which included a claim in court record that it cost her $29,655 a month to take care of herself and her family weren’t granted. She additionally stated that food and other routine bills take about $9,218 a month while her personal expenses cost about $12,000 a month including $1,165 for clothes and shoes and $4,000 for travel.
At the end of the legal proceedings, things went Jimbo Fisher’s way as he got to keep their marital home, a $1 million mansion located in Florida City’s Gold Eagle Golf & Country Club. His ex-wife then received from the college head coach $3.4 million in asset distribution and about $4,500 as monthly child support. Her alimony is being kept a secret to date although she is reported to have lost millions of dollars she could have walked away with, if not for the infidelity scandal.
The pair who got separated since May 2015 prior to their legal separation on 10th December of the same year, currently work hand in hand in parenting their sons as their second child Ethan was diagnosed with a life-threatening disorder, Fanconi Anemia at the age of six.
