It came as a shock when the news of golden-boy Graeme Smith and his Irish singer wife Morgan Deane divorcing was announced. There are no clear details just yet, but a friend close to the couple broke the news to Network24 yesterday. It is believed that Deane is leaving Smith.
The celeb couple married in August 2011 and have two kids aged 2 and 1-and-a-half-years-old. Even more surprising is that apparently they have been talking about divorce since August 2012, before Smith retired from international cricket.
The family’s legal representative, David Becker, on Wednesday confirmed the split saying, “I confirm that Graeme and Morgan are unfortunately divorcing. This is obviously a private matter and the couple would ask that their privacy is respected during this time, both for the sake of themselves and their children.”
It is always sad to see good people splitting up, but we hope it’s for the better. We’ll keep you posted.
