Gentlemen, Danica Patrick is getting a divorce, according to a Facebook update from the NASCAR driver. The couple married in 2005. “I am sad to inform my fans that after 7 years, Paul (Hospenthal) and I have decided to amicably end our marriage. This isn’t easy for either of us, but mutually it has come to this. He has been an important person and friend in my life and that’s how we will remain moving forward.” Patrick, 17 years younger than Hospenthal, was last spotted on vacation with her husband around this time last year while the two were in Hawaii. Smiles all around. The 30-year-old just finished 10th in her first year on the NASCAR Nationwide Series. She was also named “Most Popular” for the Nationwide. Filed under: Other Sports
