We were shocked to find out that [lastfm link_type=””]Eddie Montgomery [/lastfm]of [lastfm link_type=””]Montgomery Gentry [/lastfm] has prostate cancer. Even more shocking came the news that Eddie’s Wife Tracy had filed for divorce in the midst of the most difficult battle of Eddie’s life.
The word out of Eddie’s camp was that Tracy had filed for divorce after more than 20 years of marriage was because she couldn’t cope with Eddie’s cancer diagnosis.
Tracy decided to clear the air:
“Despite what is being said, Eddie’s cancer had absolutely nothing to do with my decision. It’s what the public doesn’t know that finalized an extremely difficult decision that I was forced to make … For the sake of my children, I prefer to handle things from here on out in a private manner.”
