MC Lyte Opens Up About Her Divorce After Being Married For Three Years

After being married for three years, rap legend MC Lyte is opening up about the struggles she is facing with her divorce. 

While co-hosting this week on The Real, Lyte talked about her marriage to husband John Wyche and what led to their divorce, which was announced in 2020. 

She touched on how the divorce process is still affecting her. “I’m actually still going through it. When the press got a hold of it, I think people thought we were [divorced]. I had just filed and so we’re still going through it right now.” 

Lyte added, “I think in the very beginning I was very distraught. I feel like there are phases whenever a relationship is ending whether you’re married or not. It’s that first phase of, ‘Oh my God, I’ve got to make this work for us’. Then it’s like, ‘Oh my God I’ve got to make this work for everybody else involved. The family, if there are children, people who flew all the way to wherever to see you married.’”

Mc Lyte went on to say that divorce is hard but it doesn’t mean that you are a failure. 

“It’s hard in the beginning but you realize to have happiness doesn’t mean you have to remain together and it doesn’t mean that you are a failure because the marriage failed. It’s all ego. You just have to be able to let go.”
