It’s the end of the road for the NASCAR driver Kurt Busch and his wife Ashley Busch.
According to TMZ, which cited court documents, Ashley filed for divorce in Florida in early May, saying in part that the marriage had “broken down irretrievably.” In her filing, she also alleged that her now estranged husband “committed a tort”. Ashley – who linked Kurt in January 2017 – did not go into specific details of the charge.
The outlet also said that in her filings, Ashley explained that their relationship came to a head in April, claiming that Kurt “cut her off from their joint bank account and credit cards.” She also said that Kurt “demanded that she vacate the family home by the first week of June.”
Following news of their split, Kurt released a statement to E! News. “I am heartbroken to confirm that my wife Ashley and I are working to dissolve our marriage,” he said. “Divorce is a personal and private matter and I hope our privacy will be respected.”
