Marvin Gaye III Files For Divorce Two Months After Domestic Violence Arrest

Marvin Gaye’s son has just apparently said he’s ‘got to give it up’ when it comes to his seemingly drama-filled marriage to wife, Wendy Gaye. Word on the Old school curb is that the R&B legend’s son trekked on down to the courthouse to file divorce papers, and this comes just two months after Marvin III was arrested for domestic violence.

Although Marvin and Wendy have been together for some years now (how many years isn’t clear, since Marvin listed their marriage date as TBD…whatever that means), it’s likely become quite clear to him that their once happy union has become too toxic for them both.

It was just back in January, when Wendy reportedly called the po-po’s on her hubby, claiming Marvin III laid hands on not only her, but her cousin as well, inside their Calabasas, CA home. According to Wendy’s DV filing at that time, she claimed Marvin III grabbed her by her neck, while simultaneously lifting her up off the ground. She also claimed that when her cousin stepped in to help her, Marvin supposedly physically attacked them both, and pointed a gun at them…says Wendy.

Needless to say, cops were called, but it wasn’t until the next day that Marvin III turned himself into police custody. He was hit with two charges– felony assault with a deadly weapon and misdemeanor domestic violence. He ultimately was released after posting a $50K bond. It’s unclear where those charges stand today.

Fast forward to present-day, and Marvin III is ready to call it quits on his marriage. According to his divorce filing, Marvin simply listed “irreconcilable differences” as his reason for opting to divorce Wendy. He’s also reportedly requesting that the court block Wendy from receiving any future spousal support.

When it comes to further dividing up any profits he and his siblings, Nona and Frankie Gaye, have seen from their Pop’s post-humous earnings/royalties, it sounds like Marvin Gaye III ain’t having that.

Wishing Marvin III and his soon-to-be-ex-wife, Wendy Gaye, a smooth transition back into the single life.
