Despite Reports, Trace and Rhonda Adkins ‘Have Settled Their Divorce Amicably’
Don't believe everything that you read: Trace Adkins' divorce from his wife Rhonda has not been called off.
On Wednesday (June 17), Radar Online reported that they had exclusively obtained new legal documents showing that Rhonda Adkins had filed an order of voluntary dismissal on June 1. However, Trace Adkins' attorney, Larry Hayes Jr., calls the report "inaccurate."
"The Adkins have settled their divorce amicably. Rhonda and Trace made this decision together in the best interest of their family," Hayes Jr. says in a statement. "All that remains is for the court to approve the agreements that have been executed by them both. An updated petition seeking such court approval will be filed in the coming days."
A source at the Chancery Court in Williamson Country, Tenn., tells Taste of Country that the Adkins' divorce filing has, indeed, been expunged from the public record -- but that doesn't mean the couple is getting back together. Rather, it can sometimes indicate, as it does in this case, that the parties involved have decided to move into private mediation.
Trace and Rhonda Adkins were married for 16 years before Rhonda Adkins filed for divorce in March of 2014, citing irreconcilable differences and seeking primary custody of the couple's three daughters.
“Trace and Rhonda are united in ensuring that their children’s interests come first," the couple said in a statement shortly after news of their divorce broke. "They thank everyone for respecting their privacy as they work through this personal matter together."
