Los Angeles, California (WiredPRNews.com) — It seems a member of the New Kids on the Block is planning to hang his hat on a different block. Singer Donnie Wahlberg and wife Kim Fey Wahlberg are ending their nearly nine year relationship which, as a New Kids song used to say is “hangin’ tough”.
As most Hollywood relationships tend to do, married life is coming to an end for the couple who are citing “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for their split. According to court documents, both Donnie and Kim filed for divorce separately last week in difference counties in the L.A. area.
The couple were married in August 1999 and previously separated earlier in 2008. The split comes on the heels of a New Kids on the Block reunion tour for Wahlberg, 39, who is also set to appear on the big screen in “Righteous Kill,” to be released on September 12.
The ex-couple have two sons, aged 15 and 17.
