Sara Evans Files for Divorce, Quits TV Show
Country singer Sara Evans on Thursday announced she was filing for divorce and quitting the 'Dancing With the Stars' television competition.
Evans filed for divorce from Craig Schelske in Williamson County, Tenn., where she lives, according to a statement issued by Allen Brown, her representative at Sony BMG Music Entertainment.
'Recent events that shed light on the status of her marriage prompted Ms. Evans to make the filing,' Brown said in the statement. He declined to elaborate.
The couple were married in 1993 and have three children.
Evans decided she needed to leave the TV show 'to give her family her full attention at this difficult time,' Brown said.
