Mary Kay Letourneau And Ex-Student Husband File For Separation To Be Able To Grow Marijuana?
Twenty years after their relationship sparked international headlines, Mary Kay Letourneau’s husband Vili Fualaau filed for legal separation earlier this month, according to a TMZ report published on Tuesday.
The Seattle teacher was married with four children when she began an affair with Fualaau, who was a student in her sixth-grade class at the time. Letourneau, then 34 years old, was forced to make the relationship public after becoming pregnant by her then 12-year-old student. The Seattle teacher was arrested in 1997 when her husband found out about the affair. She pleaded guilty to two counts of second-degree child rape. Letourneau and Fualaau ultimately married and had two daughters together.
Why Vili Fualaau is filing for separation from Mary Kay Letourneau? Vili Fualaau’s recent request for a legal separation from his wife reportedly has to do with business, not a lack of love. The 33-year-old told Radar Online the move was intended to help him get into the marijuana business as a licensed distributor of a smokeable product called “Cigaweed.” “When you want to get licensed, they do background checks on both parties. If I decide to be a part of it I have to be licensed and I have to be vetted and so does a spouse. She has a past. She has a history.” That history is in 1996, the couple made headlines after Letourneau was caught having sexual relations with Fualaau when he was just 12 years old. The punishment for that crime was that she was incarcerated for seven years and is permanently required to be on the sex offender registry. Despite Fualaau’s explanation about why he filed for a legal separation, an inside source stated, “They’ve been having issues for a while now. They tried to work through them, but it didn’t work. They’re still committed to being good parents to their children.” Adding to the confusion, TMZ reported last week that Letourneau had “filed a bizarre petition with the court to have her husband’s separation case dismissed.” However, the site says she did not provide a reason or basis for her legal action.
Wow! Does The Drama Of These Star-Crossed Lovers Ever Stop?
Susan Z’s Conclusion:
What both of these two have gone through to be together in this life, (one only can guess what kind of karma is going here) it is sad that inevitably they would face a breakup. I believe that Vili had intentions to end this marriage and the new business is just a convenient way out.
This is card is being blindsided and having the rug pulled out from underneath you in a life situation. I feel this card represents Letourneau’s emotions in this separation. She didn’t see it coming!
Ten of Cups: Inverted (Upside Down)
This card is emotional dreams coming true. They were both obviously very much in love and she went through hell to be with Vili but now his life dreams are different than hers.
Four of Wands:
This card is change of residence and optimism. I feel this card shows Vili’s attitude about the separation. He is moving on and optimistic about making a future without Letourneau.
