Garth Files For Divorce
America’s claim to the most top selling country album artist, Garth Brooks has filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences with Sandy, his wife of 14 years, reported Mr. Showbiz.
The country superstar, who announced his retirement at a press conference two weeks ago, filed the documents Tuesday in Tennessee’s Davidson County Circuit Court under his full name, Troyal G. Brooks. The couple separated in March last year, and Sandy Brooks moved back to their native Oklahoma the following July.
The filing came as no surprise as Brooks, 38, had openly admitted marital difficulties for several years because of his frequent absences from home.
Married in 1986, the couple has three daughters and maintained homes both in Nashville and near Tulsa, Okla.
Prior to his retirement, Brooks, who has sold more than 100 million albums worldwide, will record one more album for a 2001 release.
Meanwhile, rumors speculate that the main reason behind the divorce is rumors about an affair between Garth and a fellow country songstress. – Albawaba.com.
