Why did Dale and Kelly Jarrett divorce?


Dale and Kelly Jarrett divorced due to personal issues, including the deep post-retirement depression Dale Jarrett admits to experiencing. Dale has been far more public on the reasons behind the divorce than his ex-wife, Kelly.

In a 2012 interview with ESPN, Dale Jarrett admitted that he has been struggling with severe depression since his retirement. The three-time Daytona 500 champion acknowledged in the interview that retirement was far more difficult than he initially imagined. In the same interview, Jarrett admitted that his depression made it difficult for him to get out of bed at times, and speculated that his drastic change in mood probably led to the split from Kelly.

In a USA Today interview, Jarrett seemed in better spirits, citing golf as his new hobby. While the racer admitted that he would always want to get back on the track, he also noted that his newfound love of golf was helping him take the focus off of his former career in racing. Although he offered no additional details on the divorce, the father of three reported that spending time with his children in New York City has helped him through the divorce process as well as his considerably rocky retirement.
