Actress Brooke Shields revealed that while her divorce from tennis star Andre Agassi was fairly smooth and quick, he left her with a chilling threat that it could have been much worse.
The 48-year-old appeared on The Today Show Thursday in a segment about divorce featuring high profile celeb divorce attorney Laura Wasser (Britney Spears, Angelina Jolie, and many other high profile clients) who was promoting her new book It Doesn’t Have To be That Way: How To Divorce Without Destroying Your Family Or Bankrupting Yourself.
Brooke briefly touched on how her own divorce would have been far more if the couple had kids.
“I am divorced,” she said. “And mine was fairly quick and relatively easy but it’s a very interesting thing because he did say to me ‘be happy that we don’t have children or I would not have made this easy for you.”
She quickly got off the topic by then saying “and therein lies why I’m not there anymore.”
Brooke and Andre were married for two years, divorcing in 1999. She went on to marry Hollywood writer/producer Chris Henchy and the couple has two young daughters.
