“We instantly… gravitated to each other because of our personalities,” Wright told website Inside Edition in February 2019. “It was strictly a friendship and [we] really just opened up with each other. We were both married and both in bad marriages and confided in each other because we both understood.”
Indeed, Tipps provided a bit more detail when discussing that latter point. “When I met Brittany I was just like, you know, ‘Hey, my marriage is way worse than your marriage,’” he told Del Sol Photography in September 2018. “‘Way worse than yours is!’ And she was like, ‘No mine is way worse!’”
After Tipps and Wright’s initial meeting, they were due to leave Seattle on the same day, returning to their respective spouses. Ahead of the latter’s trip back to Dallas, though, she was already engaged in a text conversation with her husband. And then their lengthy talk then took a sudden turn.
