Pete Rose Files for Divorce from Wife #2

According to MSNBC Sports, Pete Rose, MLB’s all-time hit king has filed for divorce from his wife of nearly 27 years. Rose, 70, cites irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split from his second wife.

Carol and Pete Rose married in 1984. They started dating when Rose was a member of the Phillies. Carol was an NFL cheerleader. The couple has two adult children.

According to court documents, Rose selected date of separation as “to be determined.” However, he was open about dating a much younger woman since 2009. He publicly brought Kiana Kim on the Howard Stern Show to brag about their romance.

Rose asks that his estranged wife pay for her own attorney but will grant her spousal support. The former MLB star seeks all memorabilia, jewelry and other property he acquired before their marriage.

Baseball banished Rose from the sport in 1989 after he was accused of gambling on games both as player and a manager of the Cincinnati Reds. Rose denied allegations for years but finally came clean in 2004. Due to his life-long ban from baseball, he is not eligible for the Baseball Hall of Game. Rose stands a chance of reinstatement, but only if the MLB Commissioner Bud Selig decides to rule on it. So far, Selig is in no rush to grant such a wish.
