Gary Owen's Ex-Wife, Kenya Duke, Calls Him Out After Discussing Their Broken Relationship on ‘Club Shay Shay’

The exes were married for nearly 20 years after they decided to divorce.

Gary Owen's ex-wife, Kenya Duke, is entering the chat after comments he made about their family matters.

Earlier this week, the comedian appeared on the latest episode of "Club Shay Shay" hosted by Shannon Sharpe. During that episode, he discussed his messy divorce with Duke and his estranged relationship with their kids, Austin and Kennedy, whom he said he hasn't seen, according to The Sun.

"At this point, I don’t know how to reconcile the relationship," he told the host. "I’m just letting them know that I love them, I’m proud of them, and whenever they call I’m there."

After the episode premiered, Duke addressed Owen's remarks.

"It has been 3 years," she said in the caption of an Instagram post. "I am always kind and cool with you. I purposely, never make it awkward. I never bother you."

She continued, "I have given you my suggestions on the situation but you don’t respect their boundaries. Which is why you discussed this again on social media. I don’t know what else to do to help you. Always wishing you well."

Duke's post also included an extra layer with a photo she posted of a message she tagged the comedian in.

"My growth is not feeling the need to address mistruths anymore. The grace and kindness, I have shown you, is the space to tell lies and false narratives for sympathy and attention without correcting," she said. "You are a great storyteller… sometimes I get caught up in your versions."

In 2021, Owen and Duke went their separate ways after 18 years of marriage.

According to TMZ, Duke filed divorce documents on Friday (March 19) in Los Angeles County Supreme Court. There’s no clear indication why the Duke filed for divorce from Owen.
