NASCAR star Kurt Busch’s wife Ashley Van Metre has filed for divorce for a reason that the marriage is ‘irretrievably broken’ and “claims he ‘committed a tortious act’. It’s over between Kurt and Ashley.
The Daily Mail has the details;
NASCAR star Kurt Busch and his wife are getting a divorce after she claimed he ‘committed a tortious act’. Ashley, 30, filed for legal separation from the 43-year-old athlete because their marriage was ‘irretrievably broken’.
The professional polo player turned businesswoman said her husband had cut her off financially and she had signed a prenup. Meanwhile Busch released an emotional statement saying he was ‘heartbroken’ and wanted to resolve the matter in private.
Ashley filed the bombshell documents – seen by TMZ – in Florida on May 9 after their relationship turned sour last month. She claimed Busch had cut her off financially by blocking access to their joint bank account and credit cards.
Ashley said the 2017 Daytona 500 winner demanded she leave the family home by the first week of June. She also admitted she had signed a prenup.
The pair have been married for nearly six years – having met in 2015 and walking down the aisle in December 2016 – but do not share any children.
She is a lifelong polo player from Virginia and was a global brand ambassador for the U.S. Polo Association in 2017. She has played with Prince Harry with the Sentebale Polo, where they won the trophy Sentebale Polo 2018 in Berkshire in England.
In case you were wondering Kurt Busch has a net worth of about $60 million and doesn’t plan to give much of it to his soon-to-be ex-wife. They don’t have any kids so it will be an uphill battle for Ashley to try to cash out since she did sign the prenuptial agreement.
Good luck to her though. Hopefully those POLO checks are still coming in.
