So with all the free time on his hands after being suspended by the NFL for the entire season, Saints head coach Sean Payton can spend a lot of quality time with the wife, right?
Not so fast. Payton is getting divorced, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune.
In the filing for divorce from his wife Beth, he's citing “discord or conflict of personalities between Petitioner and Respondent that destroys the legitimate ends of the marriage relationship and prevents any reasonable expectation of reconciliation.”
We have also learned that Beth has filed a counter-petition in the matter, asking for “exclusive right to designate the primary residence of the children in Tarrant County, Texas”, as well as the exclusive right to make decisions about the medical, legal and educational interests of the couple’s two children, and she has requested that Sean Payton pay child support.
This comes mere days away from the couple's 20th wedding anniversary on July 11th.
