CM Punk’s Ex-Girlfriend Says He’s Retired & Talks About The Downside Of His Fame

Natalie Slater, ex-girlfriend and a close friend of CM Punk, posted a column for Red Eye Chicago titled, “My friend is famous, and it sucks.” Without mentioning him by name, Slater writes:

“My friend can’t go to Target. He can’t go to Great America, the grocery store or any mall anywhere. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen him escape a restaurant without getting Instagrammed by diners at nearby tables. People mob him in the airport and tweet angrily when he doesn’t stop to sign autographs because he has a flight to catch. My friend is famous, and it sucks.”

She also discussed her friend getting mobbed everywhere:

“Now, he’s the recently retired seven-time World Champion, and he’s one of the most isolated people I’ve ever known. A few weeks ago he found a young fan and his mom cramming Easter candy into the mail slot of his front door. Just before that, he walked out of his back door to throw out the trash only to be met by fans camped out in his alley for hours just to see him.”

She added that seeing him has “bastardized” her childhood notions of fame, and that she’s “secretly glad it’s him and not me.”

The rest of the column looks at what celebrities have to go through for the price of fame. You can check it out here.
