Well-known comic actor Tracy Morgan and his wife have decided to part ways. The California-based entertainer and his wife of five years, Megan Wollover, have filed for divorce and have asked the public to respect their privacy amid what Morgan says is a challenging time. Morgan, 51, was involved in a serious car crash in 2014 which left him and two of his friends seriously injured and one person dead.
The former Saturday Night Live cast member and Wollover, 33, married after Morgan was involved in the accident. He credited his wife in being instrumental in his recovery when he had to learn to walk again. The couple shares a 7-year-old daughter. Morgan also has three adult sons from his previous marriage.
The comedian has also been featured in shows “30 Rock,” “The Last O.G.” and has done voice work in shows like “The Simpsons,” “Green Eggs and Ham” and “Animals.” The couple married in Aug. 2015. Morgan said his impending nuptials made him work hard to recover from his injuries since he didn’t want to walk down the aisle with a cane or in a wheelchair.
The reasons behind a divorce are personal and whether a couple is in the public eye or not, it is a difficult circumstance to navigate. An experienced California divorce attorney may be able to make the process less stressful by providing much-needed legal advice and guidance to his or her clients going through this life-altering event. A lawyer may be able to bring clarification to important issues such as child support, spousal support, child custody and the division of property.
