Tiger Rag stated in their article that Kelly notes they:
“Will live separate and apart without reconciliation.”
He didn’t stop there, though.
On top of the filing, he also requested a restraining order against his soon-to-be ex-wife to secure all his assets. According to the divorce petition, he requests exclusive use of their Baton Rouge home.
After he earned 9 million dollars in his first season with LSU, I am sure he is worried about his earning being taken from him. Not the mention the 10-year contract he just signed that is worth close to $100 million.
The most interesting part of the whole deal is that the two were never married under a covenant. Due to the amount of time that they were “common law” married, it still leads to the grounds of a formal divorce.
“A covenant marriage is an arrangement where marrying spouses agree that their marriage will last for the rest of their lives. However, it does provide for a divorce in a limited number of situations.”
I mean, what screams Louisiana more than a common-law marriage and divorce?
A unique set of circumstances under this divorce, but nether the less, it is still sad to see such a long marriage come to an end.
Conveniently for Brian Kelly, Mardi Gras is right around the corner.
