TMZ – Boston Red Sox pitcher John Lackey has filed to divorce his wife, Krista … who is in the middle of battling breast cancer. Lackey filed on August 30, according to court docs in Texas, claiming “the marriage has become insupportable because of discord or conflict of personalities.” Krista and John got married in November, 2008. Sources close to the family tell TMZ … Krista underwent a double mastectomy back in March and underwent chemo as recently as June. The divorce petition says John and Krista had a prenup. It also says Lackey has “separate property” he wants to keep for himself. Lackey filed the divorce papers using only his and Krista’s initials. It’s unclear why Lackey — who’s struggled on the field all season long — didn’t wait til the off-season, about a month from now, to start divorce proceedings.
Something else is going on here. There just has to be. No way this guy divorces his wife while she’s going through chemo. It’s just not possible. Nobody’s that big of a dirtbag. So what is it? To justify this, she better have slept with the entire Red Sox team and lied about having cancer in the first place. Anything else, and Lackey is scum of the earth.
