Tracy Morgan and his wife, Megan Wollover, are headed for divorce after nearly five years of marriage. The Last O.G. star recently confirmed plans for marriage dissolution with the press.
“Sadly, after nearly five years of marriage, Megan and I are filing for divorce,” Tracy told PEOPLE exclusively earlier this week. “This is a challenging time for all involved, so I ask that you please respect our privacy,” the veteran comedian said.
A representative from Megan Wollover’s camp confirmed that she filed for divorce a few days ago. “We can confirm that Megan filed for divorce yesterday,” the spokesperson said. “This is a private matter for the family,” the rep added. “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.”
Megan and Tracy Morgan wed in a private ceremony in 2015. The couple’s marriage came nearly two years after Tracy’s horrendous Wal-Mart car accident that nearly killed him. Morgan shared his thoughts about his recovery during a 2015 interview with Barbara Walters.
“I survived that crash for a reason,” the comedian said. “I’m still here for a reason,” Morgan added. “I guess my room wasn’t ready. Who knows? Maybe he kept me here to raise my daughter, to raise my family.”
Tracy Morgan and Megan Wollover have one child, Maven Sonae Morgan, who celebrated her seventh birthday earlier this month. Stay tuned for more celebrity family news!
