“I was afraid to go to the police because everyone we met was star struck by Nate. If any trouble arose, Nate charmed his way into a conversation about football and that was that”.

Becoming the celebrity wife of an adored Super Bowl champion, with every material possession at her fingertips, Dorothy Newton had it all—or so it seemed. “I was afraid to go to the police because everyone we met was star struck by Nate. If any trouble arose, Nate charmed his way into a conversation about football and that was that”. Sadly, there’s a not-so-uncommon other side to fame—an abusive, behind-closed-doors, private side of public life that few know about and even fewer believe. Silent Tears takes the reader on the roller coaster journey of Dorothy Newton, celebrity wife, revealing the hidden world of abuse happening in homes. From poverty, second-hand abuse, and meager beginnings to incredible success, fame and good fortune, Dorothy shares what happened next … silent abuse, divorce, financial collapse, and single motherhood.

Dorothy Johnson Newton, the oldest girl of six children, was raised in poverty by her mother and stepfather near New Orleans. From an early age she witnessed domestic violence at home.

Since her divorce, Dorothy has built a life as the proud mother of her two boys—Nathaniel Newton III (Tre’), who is on an athletic scholarship at the University of Texas, and Nate King Newton. She has appeared on numerous television and radio programs as the former wife of retired NFL player Nathaniel Newton, Jr. Dorothy is currently the Practice Administrator for a health care organization, where she is pursuing her M.B.A.
