Things have to be pretty bad or you have to be a cold blooded individual to leave your spouse while they are battling cancer.
I thought it was cold that Lance Armstrong left his wife who stood by him during his cancer scare for Sheryl Crow and I blasted Tiki Barber leaving his wife while she was pregnant with his twin babies for a college intern, but this is pretty bad on John Lackey’s part.
TMZ has the details.
Boston Red Sox pitcher John Lackey has filed to divorce his wife, Krista … who is in the middle of battling breast cancer.
Lackey filed on August 30, according to court docs in Texas, claiming “the marriage has become insupportable because of discord or conflict of personalities.” Krista and John got married in November, 2008.
Sources close to the family tell TMZ … Krista underwent a double mastectomy back in March and underwent chemo as recently as June.
The divorce petition says John and Krista had a prenup. It also says Lackey has “separate property” he wants to keep for himself.
John Lackey marriage was failing as much of his and the Red Sox on field performance.
It is possible things were bad before Krista’s double mastectomy and that was the true root of the divorce. Don’t want to jump conclusions there could be a reasonable explanation, but on the surface it looks cruel.
Hopefully Krista fully recovers and the divorce is amicable.
Lackey is HEATED.
