Former football star and Georgia Republican political candidate Herschel Walker has been going through some things lately. Sometimes life throws us curve balls and we don’t know whether to catch it or throw it back at times. Same goes for celebrities. Walker revealed in his 2008 memoir, “Breaking Free,” that he had been diagnosed with dissociative identity disorder; formerly known as multiple personality disorder. Moreover, he described his 12 “alters” — distinct identities that helped him cope with the trauma of being bullied as a child. He wrote of rage and “out-of-control behavior”; he played Russian roulette with a loaded gun.

“As everyone knows, I had a real battle with mental health, even wrote a book about it,” Mr. Walker, the Republican candidate for Senate in Georgia, said in a television ad released at the height of the abortion controversy. “And by the grace of God, I’ve overcome it.”

“I know nothing about an abortion,” he continued. “I knew it was a lie and I said it was a lie—and I just move on…it’s sad that people say October surprise, but you’re destroying families.”

Meanwhile, the former NFL player has been trending after a woman who said Walker paid for her abortion in 2009 is the mother of one of his children, according to a new report. The kicker is that Walker claimed to be clueless about who the woman was. Well, she upped the anti by claiming that she and Walker know each other very well. So much so that she conceived a child by him years later after the abortion. Walker, who has expressed support for a national abortion ban without exceptions, called the allegation a “flat-out lie”, threatened a lawsuit against the news outlet who reported it.

Undoubtedly Walker added: “If that had happened, I would have said there’s nothing to be ashamed of there. People have done that – but I know nothing about it.”
