Trace Adkins, Wife to Divorce After 16 Years

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin no longer have the conscious uncoupling mantle to themselves this week, following this sad news from the country world:

Trace Adkins' wife of 16 years, Rhonda, filed divorce papers in Tennessee Tuesday, citing "irreconcilable differences," according to reports.

Trace, Wife

Rhonda is asking for primary custody of daughters MacKenzie, Brianna and Trinity, and for Adkins, 52, to pay child support, alimony and all her legal fees.

This just piles on the pain to what has been a rough year for Trace.

Adkins, who has battled alcohol addiction, spent time in rehab in January after getting into an argument with a Trace Adkins impersonator on a cruise ship.

He left treatment in February to fly to Louisiana when his father, Aaron, 71, became ill, but his dad died a few days later. He returned to rehab after that.

Adkins's rep did not return calls for comment on the divorce.
