The duo married in May 1996 and have two adult children, Truice, 23, and Truly, 19.
According to Fox, the couple does not have a marriage, so the division of family property can become a complicated process. Young is assisted in the divorce process by Samantha Spector, a divorce attorney favored by public figures.
