Nobody witnessed his alters surfacing more than Cindy Grossman, now remarried, but who was Mrs. Herschel Walker for 19 years.

For 16 years of her marriage, Grossman said, she didn’t know anything was wrong. That’s because Walker’s various alters were somehow kept in check. He believes during that time, his alters did a lot of good. They helped him train hard to become an outstanding athlete and student, smashing high school football records, graduating at the top of his class and evolving into one of the greatest college football players ever.)

 

When football was out of Walker’s life, his alters were no longer focusing on a common goal. That’s when things started to go wrong. Dr. Jerry Mungadze, Walker’s therapist, said he’s seen at least three of Walker’s alters and believes that after retiring from football, Walker “had to find another way of coping and couldn’t.
