Stevie Wonder has filed for divorce from Kai Millard Morris, his wife of ten years, TMZ reports.
The celebrity news website obtained a copy of the divorce filing which states that the couple is splitting over irreconcilable differences. Wonder and Morris have reportedly been separated since 2009. CNN also confirms the divorce filing. Wonder signed it under his given name, Steveland Morris.
“As this is a private and personal matter, he asks that the public and the media kindly respect the privacy of Kai, his children and family at this time,” the rep told CNN.
Wonder wants joint custody of the couple’s children, 7 and 10. He also reportedly wants to provide spousal and child support. While Wonder earned his fortune well before he met Morris, some of his assets will likely be split. The exact amount has yet to be determined, according to TMZ.
