According to Page Six, some in the Seahawks organization are starting to feel like Ciara has made Russell become more of a “celebrity quarterback” and they aren’t happy about it.

Not everyone is thrilled about Russell Wilson’s very public relationship with Ciara.
After inking their Super Bowl-winning champ to a four-year, $87.6 million deal in July, the Seahawks aren’t exactly singing the praises of their “celebrity” signal caller as the former NFC West powerhouse stalls at 5-5 following Sunday’s trouncing of the 49ers.
Mort said there is some concern at #Seahawks HQ that Russell Wilson ‘changed his approach’ this year & is becoming more of a ‘celebrity QB.’

While ESPN’s Chris Mortensen is just one of many media members to allude to the friction between Seattle brass and their A-list starter, others are taking a more blunt approach by bashing Wilson openly on social media.
“@DangeRussWilson pull you head out of your…,” Doug Hendrickson, who is teammate Marshawn Lynch’s agent, fired off in a since-deleted tweet on Nov. 15, after the Cardinals pummeled the Seahawks 39-32.
Wilson’s ever-growing fame and social status remains as big an issue in some corners as the Seahawks’ middling playoff hopes.
