London family court takes just 20 seconds to grant divorce to former footballer Jamie Redknapp and wife Louise

It was a quick divorce for former footballer Jamie Redknapp and pop singer Louise. Judge Ian Mulkis took just 20 seconds to grant divorce to them at a hearing in the Central Family Court in London yesterday.

The couple had confirmed their split in October. Neither Jamie, 44, a former Liverpool and Tottenham midfielder, who now works as a television pundit, nor Louise, 43, were at the hearing.

According to the divorce documents filed by Louise, it stated that Jamie’s unreasonable behaviour was the reason she wished to end their 19-year marriage.

Interestingly, just hours before the hearing, Louise performed at the wedding of Strictly Come Dancing choreographer Jason Gilkinson and his partner James. The Redknapps got married in 1998 on a luxury yacht in Bermuda. The couple are expected to reach for custody of sons Charley, 13, and Beau, nine amicably.

The couple will have to wait for six more weeks before applying for a final decree absolute to formally end the marriage.
