Marvin Gaye III files for divorce from Wendy

Marvin Gaye III announced divorce from his estranged wife Wendy, just two months after she filed a restraining order against him.

The legal documents obtained by TMZ show that the son of legendary singer Marvin Gaye listed their separation as January 12. It was the same day he was arrested for apparently pointing a gun at his estranged wife.

Gaye cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for their separation. Moreover, he also asked the court not to grant Wendy any spousal support.

The couple does not share any children from their marriage. He, however, welcomed his first son Marvin IV in  1995 and his second son, Dylan, in 2000.

The divorce filing comes a few months after the couple was involved in a domestic violence fight.

A source also revealed that the marriage between the two ‘have had ongoing issues for a while now.

Wendy received court-ordered protection from her abusive husband after he physically assaulted her and his cousin during a big fight in January.

Moreover, Wendy also made claims that her alienated husband grabbed her by the neck and lifted her off the ground. He only stopped when his cousin intervened.

This allegedly made Marvin angrier and led him to physically attack both women before threatening them with a gun.

After the cops arrived at his Calabasas home, Gaye fled the scene leaving behind the two gums inside the house.
