Uncle Luke’s Wife Files For Divorce, Ending 12 Year Marriage, He Says: It’s Hurtful & A Total Surprise
Uncle Luke (real name Luther Roderick Campbell) and his wife Kristin Thompson have split. He shared the news, telling The Breakfast Club that Kristin filed for divorce and that no infidelity nor abuse by him took place. He says in a statement,
After twelve years of marriage, on July 17th, my wife decided to file for divorce. It’s mind-boggling, hurtful, and a total surprise. I never intended to get married to get divorced. That’s not in my DNA nor my family’s history. I believe in the sacred vows, for better or worse, but I have to respect her decision.
Under no circumstances was there any infidelities nor verbal or physical abuse by me. I am now trying to make peace with her decision as best as I can. It will take time. The most important focus for me now is our son and being the best parent I can in this situation. Most of our family members know about this already, but now I am at the point where I feel an announcement is necessary to my friends.
The 59-year-old artist and record executive ends his statement stating:
Please understand this is not a nasty split, so I would ask all who are aware, not to speak on our personal lives and respect our privacy by staying positive for our son’s sake. He is our top priority. Luther Campbell
Uncle Luke and Kristin married in 2008. They share one child.
