Us Weekly reports that Stevie Wonder has decided to put an end to his 11-year-old marriage with fashion designer, Kai Millard Morris. Things weren’t going very well between the two; in fact the couple has been separated since 2009 and now they decided to make the split official.
Music legend, Stevie Wonder will go through his second divorce this year as he decided to put an end to his marriage with fashion designer Kai Millard Morris. The papers he filed on Friday state that the couple lived separate lives since October 2011, but it was only on August 3, 2012 that they realized they should legally end the marriage.
The singer appeared to have found true love as the couple has been together for more than 11 years. They also have two children of 10 and, respectively, 7 years. Stevie wrote in the divorce papers that he will pay both spousal and child support after the divorce.
The real reason behind their decision to separate remains a mystery, but the 63-year-old singer cited irreconcilable differences in the divorce papers. The case will be dealt by one of the most famous divorce lawyers in Hollywood, namely, Laura Wasser. She has taken care of many celebrity divorces, her client list including big names, such as, Britney Spears, Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton. As a result, Stevie Wonder‘s case will be well taken care of.
This is the second marriage ending with a divorce for the singer. In 1970, he tied the knot with singer Syreeta Wright, but the relationship didn’t last more than two years. Wonder, whose real name is Stevland Hardaway Morris, was not very affected by the first separation. In fact, he was involved in many other relationships and had children with other female celebrities including Yolanda Simmons and Melody McCulley. The „Isn’t She Lovely” interpreter has seven children from all his relationships and marriages.
