An insider 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.”

Letourneau’s attorney, David Gehrke, Vili was the one that filed for divorce. The couple will be contesting for the legal custody of their two daughters, Audrey and Georgia. The attorney also added, 

“She could try to contest it, but that’s legally tough to do. Perhaps if they want to figure out about the children and child support, but their kids are getting pretty old now.”

Even though their relationship had a lot of ups and downs, the couple overcame all odds and married but in the wake of the current situation, their reconciliation seems highly unlikely.
