“Today, my wife, Jill, and I have filed for divorce. This was a mutual decision between the two of us. This is a private matter for our family and during this painful time, Jill and I would appreciate your privacy, understanding, and your prayers, especially for our children,” Pryor said in a statement provided to Talk Business.
