Paula Deen and Michael Groover Heading For Divorce

Wednesday, July 17, 2013

Paula DeenPAULA Deen is headed for an ugly $17 million divorce battle with her husband Michael Groover.

According to American tabloid the National Enquirer, the couple have no pre­nuptial agreement — and pals are saying all bets are off at this point.

“If they do divorce, Paula could have a real fight on her hands,” said a source close to the family.

Michael is said to be furious over being dragged into the mess that exploded when news broke that Paula admitted in a court deposition she’d used the N-word.

“Now that Paula has soiled his name, too, everyone fears it could be the final breaking point for their marriage,” revealed the source.

“Michael is a quiet Southerner, a fifth-generation native of Savan­nah. He’s a proud man and has had trouble being in the limelight. This scandal has been a nightmare for him. People blast Paula to his face for her racial slurs, and they’re let­ting him have it, too. It’s a case of guilt by association.

“Even his fishing buddies rib him about Paula’s slurs and how they’ve become the talk of the nation.

“Michael is at the end of his rope. His closest friends believe he’s go­ing to file for divorce and get back to being a good ol’ boy – without the publicity.

“Michael appears to be a laid-back Southern guy, but Paula could be faced with a doozy of a divorce battle.”

    I do not agree that Paula should have been dropped for saying the “N” word, but I also do not believe that Paula is the innocent some believe her to be…..The fact is Paula has changed these past years, and in truth has become her own “biggest “fan” and self promoter. The women I’ve seen on TV the past 3-4 years comes across as greedy, vulgar, and self serving.

      Could not agree with you more. Frankly, I believe Ms. Deen got herself into this mess through her own hubris. And, after watching her over the years, she many times appeared crude and sometimes vulgar. There’s more to this than meets the eye, and it’s not just about using the “N” word sometime ago.

    Well if Paula doesn’t play nice I’m sure her husband might have a story or two to tell about her racism.

    “Racist…” The most overused word in the English language, usually by people who can barely speak English. Those gold tooth grills get in the way, I guess.

    anyone that LOVES someone would stick up with them thru thick and thin he is not a real man what a shame.He was just in it for the money.Paula your in my prayers.Blessings to you and your family.

    A few years ago these same “in the know” people said the same thing about Rachel Ray.,that they were divorced, getting a divorce, all the bull. ALL A LIE. BS to get ratings and start nasty rumors. Come on people!

  • Darlene

    I think everyone should clean off their own back door step and leave her alone at least she is more honest that most people. I never thought that Michael was good enough for her anyway.

  • Joy Wright

    Michael isn’t the southern gentleman he claims to be to leave Paula he’s a creep

  • Janice Anderson

    I don’t believe this at all…First of all…look at the overwhelming support she has gotten since all of this lawsuit mess started…If Michael was so upset over being caught in the fray over something that supposedly embarrassed/ pained him…COME ON PEOPLE…the backlash he would incur by divorcing Paula Deen would be way more than what has already taken place…Once again…Someone decided to throw out a claim…because the majority of folks just like to believe the worst about anyone…My money is on them staying together and saying TO HELL with all of the Haters….
