Julianna Zobrist files for divorce from former Royals star Ben Zobrist

Julianna Zobrist files for divorce from former Royals star Ben Zobrist

Julianna, a Christian pop star, was the one to file on May 13, according to Cook County circuit court records (h/t the Chicago Sun-Times.) Julianna is listed as the plaintiff, and the filing cites "irreconcilable differences" as the grounds for the divorce.

Cubs veteran Ben Zobrist is now on indefinite leave with the Cubs since last Wednesday. Marital assets for the goal of divorce proceedings in some states are determined at the date of filing.

That filing says Ben Zobrist "hopes the parties will enter into a marital dissolution agreement and permanent parenting plan, or for a judge to enter an order of legal separation and have the two live separately, 'unless they can reconcile'".

Cubs manager Joe Maddon was asked about the divorce news before Wednesday's game against the Reds.

Julianna, 34, is a professional singer, and has performed the National Anthem at several Cubs games.

Zobrist is in the final year of a four-year contract with the Cubs. "I texted with him the other day and reminded him how much I care about him, how much we miss him". He has since played for the Royals and Cubs, winning a World Series with each and reuniting with Maddon in Chicago.

CubsHQ would like to wish Ben, his wife Julianna, and their three children the best as they deal with this very stressful time in their lives.

The 2016 World Series MVP is getting a divorce from his wife, Julianna Zobrist, after 14 years of marriage.
