2 Live Crew rapper Uncle Luke has been blindsided by his wife filing for divorce after 12 years of marriage, Page Six has learned.
Luke said in a statement that Kristin Thompson filed for a split on July 17. “It’s mind-boggling, hurtful, and a total surprise. I never intended to get married to get divorced,” he said, “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.” The couple had been married since 2008 and share one son.
“Under no circumstances was there any infidelities nor verbal or physical abuse by me,” he said, “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.”
Luke — who also starred on Vh1’s “Luke’s Parental Advisory” — said that most of their family members know about the split, but “now I am at the point where I feel an announcement is necessary to my friends.”
“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 said.
