Thu 17-01-2013

Nascar Driver and Go Daddy spokesperson Danica Patrick has filed for divorce from her husband Paul Hospenthal.

Divorce documents cites the marriage has been "irretrievably broken." The Sprint Cup Series driver first announced her divorce in November 2012 with a message posted on her Facebook: 
"I am sad to inform my fans that after 7 years, Paul and I have decided to amicably end our marriage," she wrote. "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."

Paul Hospenthal is a physical therapist and is at least 15 years older than Patrick.

Court documents show the couple did sign a prenuptial agreement which should protect Danica Patrick's $18 million fortune. The couple has no children and neither side has asked for alimony.

The couple met in 2002 when she was recovering from a hip injury injury and got married in 2005.

Danica Patrick wrote in divorce documents, "My marriage is irretrievably broken and there is no reasonable prospect of reconciliation."

Danica Patrick was named the most popular driver in NASCAR's Nationwide series on Monday, a fan-voted award. In this year's Nationwide season, she finished in 10th place, becoming the female driver with the highest finishing ever in any one of NASCAR's three national touring series.
