Candi Holyfield has finally gotten what she wanted, a divorce from her husband Evander Holyfield. The end of the marriages was two years in the making but at last the couple is dunzo.
Back in June 2010 Candi filed for divorce from the boxer. Earlier that year she filed to get a protective order against her husband. She claims that he hit her in the face, neck and back after the two got in a domestic dispute at their Georgia mansion. The couple was married for 9 years, however they were separated for the last two years. Check out photos of Candi here.
Shortly after Candi filed for divorce the couple decided to work on their relationship and sought help from Dr. Phil McGraw, yes the one and only Dr. Phil. At the time the couple released this joint statement.
“We are in agreement that we both are moving forward to reach out to meet with Dr. Phil one-on-one as we believe he is the one who can help us at this time. We each admire and respect Dr. Phil for his down to earth and heartfelt approach in working with couples and relationships in a positive and uplifting way.”
Clearly the famous doc couldn’t help them because as of today the divorce is final. After a long drawn out couple of years it seems that Candi and Evander have come to an agreement things likes custody of their two children, alimony, property you know all that divorce stuff. Details of the settlement are of course being kept under wraps.
Other than that she will now be the third ex-wife of Holyfield there isn’t a whole lot that is known about Candi. She and the boxer for the most part tried to keep their private life, well private. I wonder how well that will work now that she is a single lady?
