Al Sharpton’s taken almost 17 years to officially call it quits on his marriage … he’s filed for divorce from his estranged wife.
The Reverend separated from his wife, Kathy Jordan, back in 2004, but according to new legal documents … he just submitted the divorce paperwork Thursday in NYC.
Sharpton and Jordan met in the ’70s when Al was touring with James Brown and she was a backup singer. They wed in 1980 and were together for 24 years before their split.
Since then, the Rev’s been linked to multiple women, but has seemingly been in a relationship with his girlfriend, Aisha McShaw, since 2013.
He has 2 adult daughters with Kathy. It’s unclear at this point if either Al or Kathy will be seeking spousal support.
