TMZ: John Lackey Files For Divorce From Wife Krista

Like him or not, John Lackey has been really bad this season. How bad? He’s sporting an ERA of 6.41 over 160.0 innings, the worst ERA in the bigs this season by more than .5 runs (min. 100 innings).

Could we now have a reason for his horrendous season? Earlier this season, we found out about John Lackey’s wife Krista is battling breast cancer. Then, Monday morning, TMZ.com reported that Lackey filed for divorce from his wife.

Lackey and Krista, who had a prenup, have been married since 2008 and do not have a child together. According to the court documents filed in Texas, Lackey said “the marriage has become insupportable because of discord or conflict of personalities.” 

TMZ reported Lackey’s wife underwent a double mastectomy in March and chemotherapy as late as June.

Lackey Lashes Out

Before his start Sunday night, Lackey said he received a text message from someone discussing “something personal” and after the game, he lashed out at the media, who for the most part, had no idea about the TMZ report published a few hours later.

Watch Lackey’s post-game interview:

For what it’s worth, the Red Sox released a statement about Lackey’s divorce:

“John Lackey is dealing with a deeply personal family issue, and it is one the Red Sox do not feel is appropriate for public debate. The Red Sox request that John and Krista’s privacy be respected.”

What do you think of what happened?

  1. It’s sad to hear about John and Krista breaking up. I would like to help. Is there anything I can do to help these to reconcile? If I can be of help, please have them reach out. Thank you for getting them this message.

  2. What a total and complete low life. Krista, his wife, was way too pretty and sweet to be with him to begin with. She obviously wasn’t with him for his money (they have a pre-nump_ and she certainly wasn’t with him for his looks, so she actually loved that monster. I hope she gets well and meets a REAL man and that this little boy continues to suck wind and get shamed out of baseball for good. Sorry, but this is ridiculous, he must have met another woman. He should concentrate on baseball.
