Talk about bad timing, Boston Red Sox pitcher John Lackey filed for divorce in the last month from his wife Krista Lackey as she undergoes treatment for breast cancer.
According to reports Lackey filed for divorce on August 30 and according to a Texas court document he cited that “the marriage has become insupportable because of discord or conflict of personalities.”
The couple were wed in 2008 and a source close to TMZ says Krista underwent a double mastectomy in March while beginning chemotherapy in June.
In the divorce petition it has been revealed that the couple did have a prenuptial agreement and that John has some “separate property” he plans to keep for himself.
Following in the footsteps of Sandra Bullock and Jesse James the couple only used their initials when filing their divorce papers, a move that allowed their breakup to stay under the presses radar for a bit longer than usual.
The filing comes at an odd time as Lackey continues to play through the rest of his rather pitiful MLB season.
At this time no official statements have been made by John or Krista.
Does it surprise you that John Lackey didn’t wait one more month to file divorce papers at which time his season would have come to an end.
