Patricks to Divorce

http://thatsracinluckydog.blogspot.com/ ... vorce.html

Tuesday, November 20, 2012Danica Patrick announces divorce


In a posting to her Facebook page and a message posted to www.DanicaRacing.com, NASCAR driver Danica Patrick on Tuesday announced she and her husband of seven years, Paul Hospenthal, are getting divorced.

“I am sad to inform my fans that after 7 years, Paul and I have decided to amicably end our marriage,” Patrick wrote in her Facebook post.

“This isn't easy for either of us, but mutually it has come to this. He has been an important person and friend in my life and that's how we will remain moving forward."

Hospenthal, 47, and Patrick, 30, married in November 2005 in Arizona. They have no children.

Patrick, a former IndyCar series driver, finished 10th in the NASCAR Nationwide Series standings this season, with four top-10 finishes in 33 races. In voting on NASCAR.com, she was named the series' most popular driver.

Patrick will drive fulltime in 2013 in the Sprint Cup Series for Stewart-Haas Racing.

A spokesperson for Patrick confirmed the divorce and said Patrick would have no other public comment.

Yeah, I read this too. Bummer. Wish them the best in a bad situation. Hope this doesn't negatively affect her driving.

Re: Patricks to Divorce

A week or so ago I saw an interview with her and they asked her something about her husband. She commented something about since when do we discuss my husband or marriage... Maybe not those exact words but that was the sentiment. Not that her personal life is anyone's business, but it makes more sense now.


Hey DanicaFan... You wouldn't have anything to do with this would you??? :lol: :lol: :lol: jk

Good luck to everyone involved, and my hopes for a civil split without having to go to the media to resolve their issues.

Exactly right as it isnt the medias business but most all celebs usually just ask them to "respect their privacy at this difficult time" etc. I hadnt seen her husband with her at pre race for while and her sister was riding with her in the truck for driver intros at a race, but didnt think much about it.

Oh well this story is dominating the news but whats new regarding her, but Nascar season is over so she has 3 months to get over it while rumors and allegations fly about this? The simply reason may just be her husband wanted more attention or didnt like being 2nd to her career & her hectic schedule as he is 17 yrs older then her? Good luck to both moving on--as said-- Divorce is seldom easy-- but my wife and I did our own divorce, & cost us only $99 as we split everything 30 yrs ago, and are still friends so it can be settled friendly. Course being the Holidays this may make it tougher but they both have their own familys so maybe not? :roll:

Happy Holidays 8-) 8-)

Well Denny was hanging out in Arizona during last off season getting as he called it his head right.
Maybe they two met on the golf course ;)

He was known to be a ladies man there for awhile.
Maybe Danica wants something younger now. :twisted:

Re: Patricks to Divorce

So sad that many of you have her already in a relationship. She's now just another divorce statistic.
When she was racing in Indy cars she'd run 19 or so races a year and some races were a few weeks apart. This year she ran 33 races in NW plus some in cup. Doesn't do much for the marriage when your that busy. Just saying.

Re: Patricks to Divorce

^^^ i actually thought about that when she decided to do nascar, that it would take a toll on her but not the marriage, its the product of society, there isnt much emphasis put on marriage, and its acceptable to be divorced
