Report: John Lackey Files For Divorce

BOSTON (CBS/AP) – Red Sox pitcher John Lackey has reportedly filed for divorce from his wife Krista, who is battling breast cancer.

According to the celebrity web site TMZ, Lackey filed on August 30, according to court documents in Texas, claiming “the marriage has become insupportable because of discord or conflict of personalities.”

The Lackeys married in November 2008.

There has been no comment from John Lackey, who pitched Sunday night against the Yankees.

After the game at Yankee Stadium, an angry Lackey said a member of the media sent him a text message about 30 minutes before the game with personal information.

“I shouldn’t even be standing here having to deal with this,” an upset Lackey told reporters. “I’m sitting here listening to music. I don’t know who got my phone number, but that’s over the line.”

He wouldn’t say who sent it or what it was about.
