Libby Offutt: Commitment without vows
Being a Scorpio suits her in terms of her long and rather confusing relationship that was the limelight of the hour. She was believed to have been in a relationship during the 1990s, however, nothing was officially announced.
She was in a relationship with retired American football player Randy Moss. Randy is popular for representing teams like “San Francisco 49ers” in the National Football League (NFL).
The relationship started quite early as Libby was still a high school student when she first met Randy. They were the interracial relationship gossip of the DuPont high school.
The interracial relationship was still a matter of criticism by then. Libby was not just pointed out, taunted and cornered, but was bullied and threatened because of her relationship with Randy.
The case worsened when she got pregnant.
She was in her senior year when she gave birth to her first child, a beautiful daughter, on March 6, 1994. She named her daughter Sydney Nikale Moss. Despite the happiness brought by the newborn, situations were not exactly in favor of Libby.
Randy received the “Kennedy Award” for the West Virginia football player of the year in the same year. He was in prime time of his career when the baby entered his life.
Libby and her parents practically raised Sydney as Randy was always on travel. Sydney was also passionate about sports. She was even appointed as assistant coach to the St. Thomas University Florida, Women’s basketball team.
While Libby was staying put with all the cornering she faced due to this relationship, Randy could not bear with the tormenting racial comments from their colleagues. His response to one of them ended up in a fight, for which he was penalized.
It was the year of 1995 when as a punishment for the use of fist, Randy spent three nights in jail. He got bail but had to leave his scholarship and bid goodbye to his dream of playing football for “Notre Dame Fighting Irish”.
He was ordered to serve the 27 days remaining punishment within the following 18 months. This was not enough to break the bond.
The couple got closer and fought together in hard times. Libby supported Randy all she could but sometimes all is not enough.
This must have been hard for a young, unemployed, and lonely mother as Randy was busy in his career and travels. Libby was the one with kids at home.
Time and again, her frustrations led her to drug abuse. At those hard times, her parents were the only people she could turn into.
Libby Offutt: Mother of five
The forty-five-year-old blonde has a total of five children with Randy. Her first child is a daughter and the second child is a son: Sydney Nikale Moss and Thaddeus Moss. They have an age difference of about four years.
The third child is a boy called Montigo (Tigo) born on June 28, 2002. Libby gave birth to her fourth child, a daughter named Senali Moss born two years after the birth of Tigo. After Senali, she gave birth to another daughter Sylee.
Sydney followed her grandfather’s passion in basketball, Sydney was dubbed as a WBCA player of the year twice.
Thaddeus followed his father’s career in football. Both of them are renowned sportspersons.
Libby’s son Thaddeus has represented the LSU Tigers football program from the team called Fighting Tigers.
Thaddeus started playing for Boone County High School, Lincoln (R.I) High, St. Albans High School, NC State Wolfpack, and Victory Christian Center High School. Since 2017, he has been playing for Louisiana State University.
Thaddeus’s team won the title of National Championship in 2020. Senali, also plays basketball and has become a YouTuber recently. Tigo and Sylee also play football.

Libby Offutt: Fame out of the pain.
Despite their long term relationship and so much of sharing, Libby and Randy had their fair shares of troubles and disturbances in their relationship.
The headlines about their fight came into the spotlight in 1996 as the domestic battery: she was attacked by spilling hot water.
Before their breakup, Libby made the news highlights when she was accused of spending around four million US dollars on drugs. Randy accused her of having abandoned the children under the influence of drugs. Libby’s mother came forward testifying it as false.
Soon after the breakup, Randy tied his knots with Lydia Griffith in a private ceremony in 2015. Randy has been working as a sports analyst since 2020. He appeared in Sunday NFL Countdown and Monday Night Countdown programs.
Randy claimed that the burden of taking care of the abandoned children made him retire from football. However, Libby refused to accept the accusations and gave a counter statement.
According to Libby, her former boyfriend Randy was deliberately trying to keep her separated from their children. She claimed his accusations were false and didn’t want a settlement.
The legal issues were pretty intense as there were physical fights. They even filed a domestic battery case.
The argument was rough as Libby claimed her ex-boyfriend and his wife Lydia prohibited her from seeing her children even on Christmas.
After the dust settled, Libby again became the talk of the city when her son made a big hit of his career. She was also in the spotlight as a mother of winning team’s best player after Tigers’ victory against Clemson in the 2020 CFP Championship.
