BSO- Louisville trustee Jonathan Blue is going through a nasty divorce with his wife Tracy Blue. It has gotten so nasty that Mr. Blue believes that Mrs. Blue had an affair with former Louisville and current Texas head coach Charlie Strong.
He wants a judge to help him prove it. Strong is a “critical witness” to Tracy Blue’s “repeated behavior and activities that are inconsistent with being a role model and responsible caretaker” for the couple’s two teen daughters, according to a motion filed Feb. 19 in Oldham Family Court by Jonathan Blue’s attorney, Ann Oldfather.
Oldfather requests Strong produce his cell phones — “for the purpose of downloading all text messages” – his phone bills from 2012 to present, and all correspondence exchanged between Strong and Tracy Blue and with anyone else about her.
In addition, Oldfather requests “the Movado watch given” to Strong by Tracy Blue and all clothing and jewelry she gave to him. The motion also requests Strong’s calendars from 2012 to present and all records of his air travel, including tickets and flight confirmations.
One movie quote comes to mind when I think about this situation...
"The painting was a gift, Todd."
But seriously though, isn't "trustee" just a fancy word for "booster"? Pretty sure the majority of this guy's job is to keep the major players in Louisville athletics happy. Well, it just so happens that the only way for this guy to keep Charlie Strong happy was for him to offer up the extramarital services of his life partner. Hey, you gotta do what you gotta do, but you can't turn around and throw it in his face after the fact. That infidelity was a gift, Jonathan. Those sexts were sent in confidence. They weren't supposed to be brought up years later. This guy just completely compromised the trust required for the trustee position by airing out the shady recruitment practices of his own athletic department. For shame Jonathan, for shame. You brought your wife into the institutionalized prostitution business and now you are going to try to sell her short after you guys have separated? You want to use the fact that she slept with someone else for leverage in splitting your assets? Your wife WAS your best asset and you both prospered greatly from a more accomplished football program when Charlie Strong was splitting her down the middle. Now that I think about it, your hot (and apparently rather slutty) significant other was probably the reason you got hired in the first place. She did her job by keeping the head football coach satisfied. Charlie Strong did his job by getting Louisville to a BCS Bowl Game. The only person that didn't fulfill their obligation to the university is the guy that just jeopardized the well being of the two adulterers that actually did. If you didn't want getting cheated on to be part of your job description then you should have chosen a different line of work Jonathan, but I think it's a little unfair to be bringing it up now.
P.S. Can't believe Charlie Strong broke Rule #1. I guess his 'Core Values' were more of a team thing than a family thing...
