Singer KT Tunstall has pulled the plug on her marriage of just over five years after many fans didn’t even know she was married.
According to legal documents, obtained by The Blast, the ‘Black Horse And The Cherry Tree’ singer filed for dissolution of marriage from her husband — Alexander Preston.
Interestingly, there is not any reporting on the marriage between the two parties, but someone by the name of “Alex Preston” is credited for producing a large number of music videos for the singer.
KT Tunstall Splits With Husband Of Five Years
In the filing, Tunstall says the duo married on February 5, 2015, and separated almost six years later in 2021. The documents state the former couple does not have any children together. KT (Kate Victoria Tunstall) is citing “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the split. Also, the singer is asking for spousal support from her ex-husband in the original petition.
It should be noted, that the divorce itself (like the marriage) flew under the radar and the ex-couple has already settled the case.
The settlement states the two agreed to “voluntarily waive their right to receive spousal support from the other party, and agree that no court shall have jurisdiction to order spousal support in the future.”
As you know, Tunstall skyrocketed into stardom with the song ‘Black Horse And The Cherry Tree’ — trust us you know the jam!
The good news is that Tunstall continues to put out great music and announced a new hot single in the past few weeks. The new song, ‘Private Eyes’ is off of her upcoming album ‘NUT.’ Interestingly, the song reportedly recounts a “surreal celebrity encounter” at a party early in her singing career.
She described it, “Early on after my big success, I would dip my toe into accepting invites to random parties. At one party in a little club in Soho, London, a beautiful actress – who I didn’t know personally – in a big puffball gown, grabbed my hand and pulled me down the stairs into the basement kitchen in a panic. She was terrified of the paparazzi stalking her outside – she couldn’t face them. Mascara was running down her face as she had a meltdown on the floor. I had to break it to her, there was no door down here; the only way out was back up. But I remember through my own boozy haze how tragic it seemed that this person had so craved a life that had now felt like a prison. Beautiful eyes that didn’t want everyone looking into them.”
