Former Olympic hero and champion Mary Lou Retton has revealed that she was secretly divorced earlier this year in February. Retton is currently a contestant on "Dancing With The Stars."

According to Fox News:

Gymnast Mary Lou Retton has been keeping a secret all season on "Dancing with the Stars" — she finalized a divorce from her husband of 27 years in February.

Retton told her dance partner Sasha Farber the news in a rehearsal segment aired on Monday night's show.

"I went through a divorce. People don't know that. It's the first time I've actually said it publicly," the retired gymnast said on camera.

Retton married former football player Shannon Kelley in 1990. They have four daughters.

The former Olympian said that although they still loved each other the relationship was just not healthy anymore. She even stated on the show that she is officially back on the market.
