Report: Glenna Bevin files for divorce from former Gov. Matt Bevin
Glenna Bevin, the wife of former Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin, has filed for divorce, according to media reports.
According to documents filed in Jefferson Circuit Court Thursday, Glenna Bevin describes her 27-year marriage to the former governor as “irretrievably broken.” The Courier Journal reports the petition also notes the couple has been separated for over a year.
Bevin is seeking divorce, joint custody, child support, and attorney’s fees from the one-time top Kentucky Republican.
The Bevins have nine children, but only two are minors, where custody would come into play.
Matt Bevin served one term as Kentucky governor before losing a close election to current Gov. Andy Beshear. His last major public appearance was a press conference at the Capitol, generating speculation that he might seek another term. Instead Bevin spoke for about 20 minutes about a host of issues facing the state before exiting the Capitol without filing to run.
