Devon Wylie Wife: Was He Married Or Single?
Devon Wylie didn’t have a wife and wasn’t married. If we go by his social media presence, Wylie seems to have been single during the time of his passing.
On Instagram, where people usually share pictures with their better half or partners, Wylie doesn’t have such images. He mostly shared throwback pictures of him when he played in the NFL.
And if it wasn’t throwback pictures, Devon’s Instagram page used to be filled with videos of him singing at various locations. Music was another major passion of the former Kansas City Chiefs player.
His last post on Instagram came on August 25, which was a video of Dave Matthews from Dave Matthews band teaching a young kid to play guitar. Before that video, Wylie had shared a video of him singing at a bar while playing guitar.
Not a frequent social media user, Devon last year shared a video of him singing Canadian singer Justin Bieber’s hit song, Sorry, in his own rendition at the 710 Beach Club.
The football player turned musician Wylie was also close friends with country singer Jillian Cardarelli. He had previously shared a post for Jillian on her birthday in 2020. He would also constantly share posts congratulating her on her musical feats.
Going through his Instagram handle, it looks like Wylie was single and trying to find his feet in the music world. He was also extremely close with his family members, including his siblings.
