Country singer Trace Adkins headed to divorce court

High-profile divorce cases usually play out in the public eye, making a very personal and difficult time even more trying for everyone involved. The publicity can sometimes complicate the case, as every move made by both parties is scrutinized by the public and the paparazzi. San Diego residents might be interested to know that country singer Trace Adkins is about to go through a divorce in a very public way.

The 52-year-old country star was participating on a full-week cruise in January 2014, called Country Cruising where he was one of the performers. He wound up consuming alcohol during the trip, which forced him to cancel his remaining appearances on the cruise, despite prior commitments.

This was one factor that prompted his wife of 17 years to file for a divorce in March on the grounds of irreconcilable differences. In addition, she has asked the court to grant her custody of the couple's three young children.

Adkin's publicist made a public statement about the divorce on March 27, stating that the couple was committing to put the interests of the children first during and after the divorce. The statement also asked that the public allow the Adkins family some privacy during this very trying and difficult time.

Trace Adkins and his wife are not only a high-profile couple, but they are also very wealthy. The sheer amount of assets owned by the couple as well as the fact that they are parents to three minor children will most likely complicate the divorce. Both Adkins and his wife are most likely seeking the advice of legal counsel to ensure a fair and equitable split of their assets. If the custody requested is challenged by Adkins, it is also possible that the court will appoint an attorney for the children to be sure that their best interests are not forgotten.
