Mary faced so many major problems in her entire life but eventually, she met her soulmate and they started dating in 2000. After three years of dating, they changed the venue on December 7, 2003, in a simple ceremony at her home. The duo were spotted together on different occasions and Mary’s husband even served as her manager during the same period. Mary surely knew of her partner’s past due to which she never had any grudges against his kids.

Mary’s past had always let her hesitate while she planned to tie the knot. In an interview, she shared that she still couldn’t believe it was real even after marriage since she never considered herself worthy enough of such a man.

She continued, “Because my past was just horrific. I felt ashamed about everything. Me dropping out of high school, me not, you know, just not being beautiful enough. I just didn’t feel like I was smart enough or beautiful enough, you know, for years.”

While they were happily married for many years, the pair’s problems with each other led to a divorce in 2016. They continued to battle each other for a long time over the split of assets and they even made controversial claims. In between all these, the divorce was made official in 2018 but a specific reason for the same remains unknown until today.
