Trace Adkins Heartbreak: Wife Of 17 Years Files For Divorce After His Rehab Stint

Trace Adkins is going to have a lot of good material to write a sad country song now that his wife has filed for divorce just a few weeks after he completed his rehab stint.

Rhonda Adkins filed the divorce papers in Tennessee after 17 years of marriage, noting in the court documents that they had “irreconcilable differences.”

Trace has had a difficult year, checking into rehab in January for alcohol abuse after getting into a fight with a Trace Adkins impersonator on a cruise.

He and his wife have three minor daughters and she is requesting primary custody, child support and alimony. She stated that they got married in 1997 and just separated on Monday, March 24, 2014.

The couple’s home in Nashville burned down back in 2011, but no one was hurt in the fire and his music memorabilia was safe from the flames.
