Famous Celebrity Couple Secretly Divorces After 27 Years Together; They Have 4 Kids

October 31, 2018

The Hollywood life isn't all that it's cracked up to be. While there are many successful celebrities and athletes, it doesn't mean that they are happy. Sadly, many Hollywood couples get divorced, and it's not an uncommon event.

A famous couple has decided to throw in the towel after 27 years together. However, the couple has been secretly divorced since last February, and many fans are left with their mouths wide open.

Gymnast Mary Lou Retton, who is currently on "Dancing With The Stars," has been keeping a secret tucked away in her back pocket all season. She finalized her divorce from her husband last February, according to "PEOPLE."

Retton told her dance partner, Sasha Farber, the news during a rehearsal segment, which aired on Monday night's show.

"I went through a divorce. People don't know that. It's the first time I've actually said it publicly," Retton said on camera.

The retired Olympic gymnast married former football player Shannon Kelley in 1990 and had four daughters together. Retton said that she is thanking God for her children who have been a tremendous help during their split.

Retton confided to Farber by saying that marriage "was hard," but said that "we still love one another, but we weren't good together anymore."

Farber teased back, trying to boost her spirits, by saying, "You're back on the market."

Retton responded with an uproarious laugh and said, "I guess I am."

Please keep the Retton family in your thoughts and prayers now that the news is public.
