Mary Kay Letourneau, the teacher whose sex scandal rocked America in 1996 when she bedded and romanced her young student Vili Fualaau, is now splitting from him, reports TMZ. They ended up marrying in 2005 after she served two prison stints for seeing him against a judge’s order.
Mary Kay, now 55, served over seven years in prison for child rape. She violated an original court order by meeting with Vili in a parked car to have sex. She then became pregnant with their second child together.
Vili, now 33, was the one who filed for legal separation earlier this month. He was 12 years old and in sixth grade when he began having sex with Mary Kay, then 34. She was married with four kids, her and Vili went on to have two kids of their own.
The two, who live in Seattle, opened up about their relationship in a 2015 Barbara Walters celebrating their 10th wedding anniversary.
