Trace Adkins has been very quiet on Twitter lately, which we all assumed was due to his battle with alcohol. However, it seems as though the Celebrity Apprentice winner was also dealing with some marital issues, but he and his wife were not able to work things out. In fact, Trace’s wife Rhonda Adkins filed for divorce recently after 16 years of marriage.
Despite walking away as the big winner last year on Celebrity Apprentice, Trace Adkins has had a rough remainder of the year, and it seems as though things have just gotten worse for the Country singer. Rhonda Adkins, Trace’s wife has filed for divorce after 16 years of marriage. According to US Weekly, Rhonda Adkins filed the divorce paperwork on Tuesday, March 25, citing “irreconcilable differences” as the reason. Rhonda is requesting full custody of the couple’s three girls, and asking that Trace pay child support, alimony, and cover all of her legal fees for the divorce.
Trace Adkins has not had the best year prior to the divorce news, either. Back in January, Adkins reportedly checked himself into rehab after he got into a fight on a cruise after having too much to drink. Then in February, Adkins left the treatment center to be with his dying father. After his father passed, Adkins returned to the treatment center to finish up his rehab. Perhaps the alcoholism was the reason for the divorce filing? Whatever the case, it is definitely sad news for both Trace and Rhonda Adkins.
Trace Adkins appeared on Celebrity Apprentice in 2008, and then returned to the show in 2013 for the All-Star season, where he broke the record for most money ever raised on the show, with $1,524,072.00 raised for the American Red Cross.
