The 'I Just Called to Say I Love You' singer is citing irreconcilable differences as the reason of their split.
Stevie Wonder is ending his 11 years marriage to fashion designer wife Kai Millard Morris. The 62-year-old singer filed a divorce paper using his legal name Stevland Morris on Thursday, July 26.
According to the documents which were obtained by TMZ, the couple has been separated since October 2009. Wonder cited "irreconcilable differences" as the reason of the split. He is asking for a joint custody of their two sons, ten-year-old Kailand and seven-year-old Mandla. In return, he has agreed to pay spousal and child support.
Although Wonder accumulated his fortune long before marrying Millard in 2001, some assets will be split. The division of them is not yet determined.
Wonder has been married twice. His first wife was singer Syreeta Wright whom he divorced in 1972. He has seven kids overall from his two marriages and previous relationships.
