But it seems that Kenya Duke has not been very happy with her marriage or something else happened, we do not know that. She has filed a divorce and even attacked Gary on one of her posts.
About her statement in court Kenya Duke says that she has no other choice than filing her husband Gary Owen. She has done that in order to get her spouse support from him. And just to remind you again, she demands around $43k.
She also says that she left her job for Gary, as he wanted to be a comedian and if it was not for him, she would have been successful. She says that around 17 years ago she left her wonderful account manager job so that she could support him.
Moreover; she also said that Gary is not keeping up with the mortgage he has to pay, and neither is he considerate about bills, fees and deposits, and as a result she is not able to put up with this behavior.
She also makes her point about Gary being the sole provider and he earning a good amount even during the time of Covid-19. So she does not see why Gary should not be giving the family the kind of support they need. Seems like Gary Owen’s wife and kids might not be together in future.
