July 29 (UPI) — Tracy Morgan’s wife, Megan Wollover, has filed for divorce. The two married in 2015 and dated since 2011.
People reported that Wollover filed papers on Tuesday, and TMZ and The Hollywood Reporter confirmed the filing.
“Sadly, after nearly five years of marriage, Megan and I are filing for divorce,'” Morgan said in a statement provided to UPI. “This is a challenging time for all involved, so I ask that you please respect our privacy.”
Wollover’s representatives confirmed to People that she filed for divorce, and echoed Morgan’s request for privacy.
“This is a private matter for the family,” Wollover’s reps told People. “Megan’s primary focus remains the best interest of the parties’ daughter. She asks that the family’s privacy be respected during this difficult time.”
Morgan and Wollover’s daughter, Maven Sonae, is Morgan’s fourth child. He has three from a previous marriage.
