Pageant queen wife seeks DIVORCE from Minneapolis cop charged with murder of George Floyd

A week that saw Derek Chauvin play a disturbing role in the death of unarmed black man George Floyd has ended with the cop behind bars and now facing divorce proceedings as his wife seeks to have their marriage dissolved.

Lawyers for Kellie Chauvin have announced that the former Mrs. Minnesota has filed for divorce from the ex-police officer who was her husband for around a decade.

In a statement, Sekula Law Offices said that the pageant queen is “devastated” by Floyd’s death and her “utmost sympathy” lies with his family, loved ones, and “everyone who is grieving this tragedy.” 

“While Ms Chauvin has no children from her current marriage, she respectfully requests that her children, her elder parents, and her extended family be given safety and privacy during this difficult time,” the statement added.
