The beauty queen estranged wife of ex-Minneapolis cop Derek Chauvin — the officer charged with murdering George Floyd — wants both of the couple’s homes in their divorce, a report said Tuesday.
Kellie Chauvin, 45, is asking for sole ownership of the couple’s house in Oakdale, Minnesota, valued at $273,800, and their townhouse in Windermere, Florida, which is worth about $226,282, The Star Tribune reported.
Kellie, who once held the title of Mrs. Minnesota, filed for divorce two days after her husband was charged in the May 25 killing of Floyd, whose death sparked a nationwide reckoning on racism and police brutality.
The former realtor revealed in court papers that the couple split three days after Derek, who is white, was recorded kneeling for nearly nine minutes on the neck of Floyd, who was black.
Kellie is neither seeking nor has offered alimony payments.
She has requested a “fair and equitable division” of personal property, vehicles and all bank, retirement and investment accounts.
It’s not clear from the divorce petition whether either of the couple’s homes have been mortgaged, which would be key determining whether acquiring both would be a financial boon, experts told the Tribune.
Derek, 44, — who is being held in jail on $1.25 million bail — missed a deadline to file an answer and counter-petition, which would challenge any of Kellie’s proposals, the paper reported.
He has no attorney listed for the divorce and his lawyer in the criminal case declined to comment.
