WORLD famous scientist Professor Stephen Hawking and his wife are divorcing, The Sun can reveal.Solicitors for the couple, who have been married for 11 years, have lodged divorce papers at Cambridge County Court.
Prof Hawking, 64 â€” famous for his Black Hole theory â€” and second wife Elaine, 55 â€” refused to discuss their split.
They have been dogged by rumours that she was abusive to him.
Last night a source close to the couple said: â€œStephen and Elaineâ€™s relationship is over. There is also talk that he has fallen for another woman.
â€œItâ€™s an incredibly sad state of affairs. Nobody knows why they are splitting up â€” itâ€™s a complete mystery. But there is a possibility another woman is involved.â€
But one of Prof Hawkingâ€™s old carers claimed new nurses were subjected to a strange â€œinitiationâ€ by Elaine.
This involved being called to the bedroom to find him and his naked wife having sex. The carer said: â€œIt was to make it clear that they had a sexual relationship.â€
Yeah, thats right. Stephen Hawking naked. Think about that all day.
