Kurt Busch, wife Ashley file for divorce

It’s over for racer Kurt Busch and his wife, Ashley.

Ashley Busch filed for divorce in Florida earlier this month, stating her five-year union with Busch is “irretrievably broken,” according to court documents obtained by TMZ Sports.

“I am heartbroken to that my wife Ashley and I are working to dissolve our marriage. Divorce is a personal and private matter and I hope our privacy will be respected,” Busch said Tuesday in a statement.

Ashley, a polo player, had married Busch in 2017. She claims in court documents their marriage began to fizzle in April, accusing the 43-year-old driver of cutting her off from credit cards and their joint bank account. Further, she also alleged Busch “committed a tortious act.”

The couple does have a prenup, per the docs.

Ashley and Busch have made appearances together both on and off the track over the years, including the Awards back in December 2021.
