Lucas And Partner Split

Published on June 19, 2008 with No Comments

Little Britain comic Matt Lucas has split with his partner – becoming the first gay celebrity couple in the UK to “divorce”.

Lucas, 34, married Kevin McGee in a civil partnership ceremony in London in 2006 – meaning the 31-year-old TV producer could now claim up to half of the comedian’s estimated $20 million fortune.

The British funnyman has now hired legal firm Mishcon de Reya – the same representatives initially used by Heather Mills in her separation from Sir Paul McCartney and by the late Diana, Princess of Wales in her divorce from Charles, Prince of Wales .

The couple wed in a lavish ceremony followed by a costume-themed reception at the Banqueting Hall in London’s Whitehall in December 2006, where Lucas dressed as Aladdin and McGee as Prince Charming.

A joint statement released on Wednesday reads: “It is with sadness Matt and Kevin announce their relationship has come to an end. Their separation is amicable.”
