Kellie Chauvin, wife of a white police officer who murdered George Floyd has now filed for divorce after her husband Derek Chauvin was arrested. Her announcement came shortly after her husband was charged with the murder and fired from his job.
Her ex-husband Derek kneeled on black man George Floyd and he died while complaining he couldn’t breathe. Kellie Chauvin expressed her sadness on the death of George Floyd and her sympathy lies with his family and loved ones who lost their family member because of her cop husband.
Ex-cop Derek Chauvin was arrested on Friday and charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter. His bail was set for $500,000.
Ms. Chauvin has no children from her current marriage and she asked for security during this difficult time.
Kellie was also charged with writing a bad check at a grocery store for $42.24 in February in 2005 when she was married to her ex-husband Kujay Xiong. She was repeatedly asked to pay the amount but she failed to respond and then a complaint was filed against her in August of that year.
Kellie then paid the money and the case was closed. She met cop Derek Chauvin Hennepin County Medical Center. Shortly after their first meeting, he asked her out. They both married around 2010.
Kellie won Mrs. Minnesota’s contest in October. She then went to Las Vegas to compete for the national round of the beauty pageant.
