The reason behind the divorce of Jim and Kate

They tied the knot in All Saints’ Church, Reading back in November 1998. But in 2000, their connection was already weak. 

However, Kate says the main reason for their divorce was Jim’s unreasonable behavior

Good friends with her ex-wife

She had confronted that she neither had a driver nor a chef or any things around her because she wanted to look after her kids and take on their responsibilities.
