Adam Carolla Getting Divorced After Nearly 19 Years of Marriage

Adam Carolla announced at the top of his podcast Friday that he and his wife Lynette are getting divorced after nearly 19 years of marriage.

“We’re going to start the show with some sad personal news: Lynette and I are getting divorced,” Carolla said. “It’s not something that I wanted to get or to do, I’m a product of divorce, Lynette’s a product of divorce… No one ever signs up to get divorced.”

Carolla said despite 25 years together and nearly two decades of marriage, they are very different people with different sets of philosophies.

“It’s not somebody was cheating, it’s not chronic gambling or COVID, it’s really just two people that were just that different and just had completely different processes and approaches to life and just couldn’t meet in the middle somewhere.”

“My number one feeling is sort of shame, embarrassment,” he concludes. “I think divorce feels like a failure.”

Always a bummer to see, no doubt.

By the way, on a side note: Carolla is as authentic, funny, and newsworthy as ever. His podcast is in the upper echelon and is getting better. That’s the content we need in 2021.

We wish all parties the best.

  1. This sucks. Sad to hear. And yes Bobby, you are right on the money about how Carolla is the content that we all NEED in the current shape our country is in. He has preached nothing but common sense for decades! Too bad – Lynette was a babe too!

  2. I’m behind in my Carolla podcasts and wouldn’t have know about this for a while if not for this piece on OK. So I’m glad Bobby posted this. Lousy news, hope Adam keeps his edge and principles, same as I hope OK doesn’t change with Clay’s happier (for him) news.

  3. That kinda sucks. I’ve been following Adam since he was on local radio in the mid 90’s(KROQ’s Kevin n Bean). One of the funniest, and most honest, guys in the biz. It sounds like Covid claims another relationship.
