Kellie Chauvin is requesting a legal change of name in her divorce from Derek Chauvin, the cop responsible for George Floyd’s murder.
The former beauty queen, who cited “irretrievable breakdown” as the reason for dissolution of the 10-year marriage, stated that she also doesn’t want any financial assistance from her now estranged husband.
Kellie Chauvin, 45, who is currently an unemployed realtor, separated from her husband on May 28, just three days after he killed George Floyd by kneeling on his neck.
She has requested the court to also legally change her name in the divorce proceedings with the papers stating: “As part of this proceeding, Petitioner shall adopt a new legal name.
“She is seeking a name change solely because of this marriage dissolution.”
Derek Chauvin has been charged with manslaughter in the ongoing investigation of George Floyd’s death following protests and rioting all over the United States.
