The death of Tyre Nichols has shocked fans all around the world. Three days after he was attacked by police during a traffic check, the 29-year-old man tragically passed away. People on the internet are divided as to whether or not Nichols was having an affair with the ex-wife and baby mother of one of the police officers, or whether or not the savage assault happened for any other reason.
The Memphis Police Department claims that on the evening of January 7, while Tyre Nichols was driving home, he was pulled over for reckless driving. He struggled to free himself from the police, but five officers managed to hold him down and beat him. It was captured on body camera as he was kicked, punched in the head, pepper sprayed, tasered, and hit many times with a baton. Nichols died from his wounds on day three following the incident.
In addition to the criminal accusations of second-degree murder and aggravated assault, police officers Justin Smith, Emmitt Martin III, Desmond Mills Jr., Tadarrius Bean, and Demetrius Haley were terminated from their positions.
Many people are still digging into the facts surrounding Tyre Nichols’s death because they suspect racism was involved. There are now others on the internet that attribute the violent attack on Nichols to a grudge the perpetrator may have held against him personally. It has been speculated online that Tyre Nichols had an affair with the ex-wife of one of the police officers.
Tyre Nichols was indeed a FedEx employee, as reported by CBS News. Online commenters have theorised that Nichols dated Demetrius Haley’s ex-wife, who also worked at FedEx, and that the two were having an affair.
Twitter user @sirmaejor tweeted about the same:

Though one online user claimed Nichols dated the ex-girlfriend of a police officer, other users pointed out that she was actually the ex-wife of the officer. The tweet further claimed that Haley had photographed Tyre Nichols and “sent it to his babymama” as Nichols slumped against a car after being assaulted.
One @LisaCampbell102 on Twitter further added to the rumours by tweeting:
“I did some investigating into the #TyreNicols Murder and felt something was off and I was right I’m being told that #TyreNicols Murder was personal (which I felt) and he was sleeping with one of his murders wife “Demetrius Haley” Tyre & the Officer wide worked at FEDEX 2Gather!”
Twitter user @pinkgworlll expressed her anger at the rumours that Nichols was seeing Haley’s ex-wife, and she questioned:
What reputable source are y’all using to spread the information about Tyre Nichols and Demetrius Haley’s ex wife working at fedex and being in a relationship? Because now y’all about to piss me off

Users on the internet are confident that Nichols had a relationship with Haley’s baby’s mother, albeit they are unsure if it was Haley’s ex-wife or ex-girlfriend. The speculation should be taken with a grain of salt because it has not been confirmed by official sources.
