SI Swimsuit model Haley Kalil files for divorce from ex-NFL player

Haley Kalil, a Sports Illustrated swimsuit model, has filed for divorce from former NFL offensive lineman Matt Kalil.

That’s according to TMZ, which wrote that the model filed the papers on Wednesday, citing irreconcilable differences.

The pair married in 2015, and reportedly separated earlier this year. They do not have any children together.

Matt Kalil, now 32, was selected fourth overall in the 2012 NFL Draft by the Vikings and made the Pro Bowl in his rookie season. He ultimately played left tackle with Minnesota through 2016, and then for the Panthers in 2017.

He missed the 2018 season with a knee injury and was released the following offseason. Though he signed with the Texans in March of 2019, he was released before the regular season began.

Haley Kalil double majored in biomedical sciences and psychology, earning a 4.0 GPA at St. Cloud University in Minnesota.

In 2019, Haley Kalil spoke to The Post about her journey from lab tech to supermodel.

“When I was little, I watched ‘America’s Next Top Model,’ and would practice all the poses on the playground,” she said at the time. “But I was like, the stereotypical nerd. I had glasses, I had the weird haircut … in my head, there were so many roadblocks in the way.”

Matt Kalil hasn't played in an NFL game since 2017.
Haley Kalil has appeared in several Sports Illustrated swimsuit issues after applying for an open casting call in 2018.
Though Kalil won a Miss Minnesota Teen USA pageant at 17, she was rejected by a modeling agency and decided to attend St. Cloud University, where she majored in biomedical science and psychology. She graduated Summa Cum Laude with a 4.0 GPA, volunteering at an immunology lab and and at a local hospital during her studies.

Kalil, 29, applied for a Sports Illustrated casting call while preparing for the MCAT, and has been featured in the magazine’s issues every year since 2018.
