Kenny G files for divorce after 20-year marriage


So much for “Forever in Love,” Kenny G.

Twenty years after that tune came out — and also 20 years after Kenneth Bruce Gorelick and Balynda Benson-Gorelick said “I do” — the smooth-jazz man has filed for divorce.

The papers, filed Thursday and obtained by TMZ, cite irreconcilable differences and indicate he’s seeking joint custody of their 14-year-old son, Noah.

Kenny didn’t exactly strike first. Balynda filed for legal separation back in January, according to E! News, a move that’s reflected in the paperwork.


One thing that won’t likely be at issue is the money. Though TMZ said the 56-year-old is worth in the neighborhood of $50 million, the divorce docs refer to an existing prenuptial agreement.

Fans hoping to angle for a backstage pass from the soon-to-be-single musician will have to wait till next month before he plays in concert again. And that’ll be in Missouri.

Southern California fans can get a taste of Kenny G come February in Costa Mesa and March in San Diego.
