What led to the messy divorce between Morgan and Graeme?
According to Daily Mail, an anonymous friend of Morgan revealed the cause of the divorce. Morgan came back from visiting her family in Ireland to get welcomed by a cold attitude from Graeme. The hardest thing for her was how she found out his plans to divorce her. He accidentally sent a divorce message to her, which was meant for his lawyer. Was the text message sent by accident or a well thought out plan? Graeme has never clarified this.
The couple had drifted apart for a long time because the cricket player was obsessed with fame, partying, and touring. He had no time for his family. Morgan was playing the parental roles for both of them. When Graeme retired, he became worse and turned into an alcoholic. This was another photo of them when they were happily married:
