Michael Clarke and wife confirm divorce

Australia: Former Australia captain Michael Clarke and his wife Kyly have announced their divorce after seven years of marriage. The couple, who got married in May 2012, have a four-year-old daughter Kelsey Lee.

“After living apart for some time, we have made the difficult decision to separate as a couple, amicably,” the couple issued a joint statement to The Australian on Wednesday. “With the greatest of respect for each other, we’ve come to the mutual conclusion that this is the best course for us to take while we are committed to co-parenting of our daughter.”

It is reported that the divorce is worth approximately USD 40 million.

According to Fox Sports, the celebrity pair separated five months ago, with Clarke moving out of their home in Vaucluse before relocating to the pair’s Bondi beachfront pad, worth USD 8 million. It is also reported that 38-year-old Kyly Clarke will continue to occupy the Vaucluse property with their daughter.
