Kitty Szekely had to deal with the emotional trauma of her parents’ divorce at the young age of 6. Her parents got married in 1995, but after about 13 years of marriage and two lovely daughters (Kitty Szekely and Mary Louise Szekely), they decided to get a divorce in 2008.
Although the actual reason for their divorce is still a mystery, some unconfirmed sources believe Alix probably grew weary of her husband’s constant jokes about their marriage and marital issues on his comedy shows. Others believe that Alix had already been privy to Louis’ perverse proclivity of making women watch him masturbate before it was recently made public and this might have contributed to the couple’s divorce.
Family Scandal and Siblings
Louis recently accepted the sexual harassment allegations levied against him and although he has apologized for his actions, he lost the support of the likes of FX, HBO, TBS, and Illumination Entertainment who severed all ties with him as a result of his sexual harassment mess.
It is believed that Alix and Louis tried couples counselling in 2007 but apparently, it couldn’t help them solve their marital problems and they eventually got divorced the next year. As earlier stated, Kitty Szekely has a younger sister. Alix and Louis both share joint custody of Kitty and her sister Mary. The girls are with their mom in New York most of the time and visit their father from time to time (mostly on the weekends).
It is believed that Louis puts everything pertaining to work on hold whenever he has the girls.
