Troy Aikman's Two Divorces Led Him to a New, Much Younger Girlfriend

Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman has been divorced twice now, and he's moved on with a much younger girlfriend.

Once upon a time, you couldn't talk about the National Football League and not mention former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman. His life, both on and off the field, always seemed to be part of the discussion. Being the leader of America's Team certainly had its perks, but he could never escape the spotlight, especially when it came to his love life.

Aikman, who won three Super Bowl rings in four seasons in Dallas, never really settled down until after his NFL playing days were over. He dated, of course, including having a relationship with country singer Lorrie Morgan during the height of the Cowboys' dynasty in the mid-1990s. Morgan even said she wanted to marry him but tabloid newspapers "tore" their relationship up.

Despite his current gig calling Monday Night Football on ESPN alongside Joe Buck, life away from the broadcast booth hasn't been sunshine and roses lately for the 57-year-old Aikman. The Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback reportedly got a divorce this year from his wife, Catherine Mooty, marking the second time he's been married and divorced.

For most of Aikman's life, his football team came first. Whether it was in college at Oklahoma and UCLA or winning Super Bowls with the Cowboys under Jimmy Johnson and Tom Landry, throwing touchdowns was always the top priority.

Then, after a life as a bachelor, former Cowboys publicist Rhonda Worthey came along and swept the star football player and Super Bowl MVP off his feet. The couple got married in a private ceremony in April 2000 in Plano, Texas, just before Aikman's final NFL season.

Worthey had a daughter from a previous marriage, plus she and Aikman had two daughters of their own: Jordan Ashley Aikman in 2001 and Alexa Marie Aikman in 2002.

Sadly, Aikman and Worthey divorced in 2011. His ex-wife reportedly received $1.75 million in the divorce settlement.

"This has been a difficult decision for Rhonda and me, but after 10 years of marriage we have decided to separate," Aikman told The Dallas Morning News. "We remain deeply committed to our children and respectfully ask that you honor our family s privacy during this period of adjustment."

Worthey was arrested the following year in August 2012 for public intoxication after police found her drunk in a car in a Texas high school parking lot. She received 30 days of probation for the incident, during which she name-dropped her ex-husband and told cops, "Do you know what this is gonna do to him? Troy?"

It took a few years, but the former first overall pick in 1989 NFL Draft found love again.

Aikman, who earned six Pro Bowl selections before concussions ended his NFL career, was single for over five years before he met Catherine Mooty. Many know her as Capa Mooty and her birth name is Catherine Cecile Person.

Mooty was a fashion retailer who co-founded a mobile boutique called Luxeliner, which is basically a food truck but for clothes and accessories. She was also a single parent with two boys of her own: Luke and Val, who both attend the University of Texas and are Aikman's stepsons.

And get this: Mooty's ex-husband, Jerry Mooty, is the nephew of Cowboys owner Jerry Jones. Talk about a small world, huh?

The sportscaster and Catherine got engaged in June 2017 in Lake Como, Italy and got married later that year in Santa Barbara, Ca., near Los Angeles.

But in July 2023, People Magazine confirmed the two were divorced. The report also claims Aikman was seen in the Italian Riviera with a new girlfriend two months prior. If you peruse Capa's Instagram, her last photo with Aikman was posted in February 2020, but her name is still listed as Capa Aikman. The New York Post reported in June that Aikman and Mooty had been divorced for three years already.

Aikman Goes Public With New Girlfriend, Haley Clark

As for the new mystery girlfriend, it appears Aikman is dating a 34-year-old woman named Haley Clark. She posted a photo of the two of them in June 2023.

Not much is known about Haley other than the fact that she was fired from her previous job at Nordstrom after she was accused of stealing almost $4,000 worth of products in October 2017. She was serving as the director of sales at Trunk Club, which is owned by Nordstrom, in the Dallas area.

Still, that's old news. The couple hard-launched their relationship status with a vacation to Italy this summer and seem to be going strong. It looks like Aikman is happy and still has a great relationship with his children, which is all that matters.
