Gary Owen, an American comedian, has been honest about losing touch with his family. On August 23, the 48-year-old famous person said on The Breakfast Club podcast that he hasn’t talked to his kids in a year because he and his ex-wife, Kenya Duke, are no longer together.
I’ve taken care of everything, said the cartoon character. Because my daughter goes to A&T, I went to Greensborough to see her. She didn’t answer when I knocked on her door. I tried to get in touch with her at the airport. I have been kicked off of social media sites. I’ve tried to get in touch with my daughter in every way possible. I try to reach out to you, but I can’t. Owen also said that his children found out about his divorce from news stories and social media, not from their parents:
They didn’t tell the kids
We were going to wait and do it together, but TMZ told them what we were going to do. After a year, Owen has decided to talk about what happened so that his kids can hear his point of view. In the podcast, he said: Everyone kept telling me to say what I thought. Even if I mean it, it’s hard for my kids to hear.
Kenya Duke and Gary Owen got married in 2003. They have three kids together: Emilio, Kennedy, and Austin. Emilio is the oldest child born to Duke and Emilio Toliver Senior. He is 31 years old. Kennedy and Austin, born to Owen and Duke, are now 21 and 20 years old, respectively. Duke filed for divorce in March 2021 in California’s Los Angeles County Superior Court, citing irreconcilable differences.”They had been married for 18 years.
In June of that same year, People Magazine said that Duke had asked Owen for $44,000 per month in spousal support after she quit her “promising job as an account manager” for the comedian.
At the time, Duke also said the following:
Gary has been giving me $44,000 every month for almost four years, so I want him to keep doing that. I also want him to pay me $88,000 for the last two months when he hasn’t given me any money.
On the other hand, the podcaster and businesswoman couldn’t hold back from posting about her wedding on social media. Duke said in an Instagram post that has since been deleted that Gary Owen kept money from the family and slept with other women while they were married.
She went on to say:
The people you say are squatters don’t live here. We only have one problem: a liar and narcissist who used to live in the house but no longer does. Gary Owen broke his silence about Kenya’s charges when he went on the Wendy Williams Show in June 2021. There is a “major twist” in his divorce from Duke, despite his claim that his counsel had advised him not to talk at the time.
