Tracy Morgan’s been married for 5 years and just called it quits with his former model wife, Megan Wollover. And this came not long after an interview with The Today Show talking about how well he was doing while quarantining with his family. At the time he said he had been home with his wife for 3 weeks and that she had been impregnated 3 times.
One would think the two were the furthest from divorce at the time. His wife, who is almost 20 years younger than him has been with him since 2011. She was with him after he almost died in a car crash with a Wal-Mart 18 wheeler and got married not long afterwards.
“Sadly, after nearly five years of marriage, Megan and I are filing for divorce. This is a challenging time for all involved, so I ask that you please respect our privacy,” his spokesperson told Hollywood Reporter. “We can confirm that Megan filed for divorce yesterday,” a rep for Wollover said in a statement. “This is a private matter for the family. Megan’s primary focus remains the best interest of the parties’ daughter. She asks that the family’s privacy be respected during this difficult time.”
And while it isn’t clear what lead to their divorce, an interesting fact about Morgan is that as of a few years ago, he revealed he hadn’t spoken to his mother in over a decade. He was involved in a bitter feud with his family where his sister spoke about how evil he was and allowed his mother go into foreclosure, refusing to help. His mother even told the press that she couldn’t allow him to keep telling lies about the family and expect her to keep quiet. It says a lot when a man hasn’t spoken to his family in a decade.
He also had a terrible alcohol problem that we don’t hear about anymore. He said in an interview years ago that after waking up lying in the kitchen floor after defecating on himself drunk, he chose to go to rehab. If that type of behavior restarted, who knows what all occurred that we don’t know about. We’re praying that their divorce doesn’t hurt the children they have together because we all know how difficult growing up in a broken home can be, and especially with your parents in the spotlight.
