Trace Adkins

Wife Files for Divorce

Lady don't love this country boy -- Trace Adkins' wife has filed for divorce ... after nearly 17 years of marriage.

Rhonda Adkins filed the docs in Tennessee, citing "irreconcilable differences."

According to the docs, the couple was married in 1997 and separated on Monday. They have three daughters (aged 16, 12, and 9).  Rhonda wants primary residential custody as well as child support. She also wants alimony.

And this is interesting ... she wants to be named the sole beneficiary of Trace's life insurance policy.

It's unclear if the divorce is related to Trace's alcohol issues -- as we reported, the singer enrolled in rehab earlier this year after getting into a drunken fight with a Trace Adkins impersonator while on board a country music cruise.

Sorry but something really wrong with someone being made your insurance recipient when you divorce. Make it the kids but an ex shouldn't profit from your death

"And this is interesting ... she wants to be named the sole beneficiary of Trace's life insurance policy." Tmz's never ending quest to make every single women on earth look like a gold digger. Is the dumb ***** from fishcrapper writing here now, too?

That's sad. I thought Trace was a good guy. I rooted for him on Celeb Apprentice. Guess he's just another drunkard.

She obviously has plans to kill him. Or have him killed. Why else does she want to be sole beneficiary?

Another conscious uncoupling. If he won't get sober for his three young kids, **** 'em. Stay drunk and write a song with your hound dog.

She needs a black guy to make her laugh and take her out on the town. A new man will do her good and treat her right .
