Danica Patrick’s divorce has been finalized.
According to RGJ, Patrick and her now ex-husband Paul Hospenthal officially finalized their divorce on April 17. Court documents filed in Maricopa County, Arizona, said that the marriage was “irretrievably broken.”
Patrick announced that she was getting a divorce from her husband back in November.
The NASCAR star wrote on Facebook:
“I am sad to inform my fans that after 7 years, Paul and I have decided to amicably end our marriage. This isn’t easy for either of us, but mutually it has come to this. He has been an important person and friend in my life and that’s how we will remain moving forward.”
Fox Sports reports that Patrick and Hospenthal have no children together. According to Fox News the two entered into a pre-nuptial agreement before they wed back in 2005.
Patrick’s divorce was finalized this month but the NASCAR star hasn’t wasted anytime to find a new love interest. She recently started dating fellow driver Ricky Stenhouse Jr.
Danica recently became the first woman to earn the pole position at the Daytona 500. She ended up taking 8th at the race, the best finish for a woman in history, and is currently 25th in the Sprint Cup standings.
