Just 2 weeks after announcing that he has prostate cancer, Montgomery Gentry‘s Eddie Montgomery announced this morning via Twitter that his wife, Tracy, has filed for divorce.

“U find out u got cancer then u found out ur wife can’t handle that so she seek of and files for a divorce ,,, merry christmas,” he tweeted around 7:40 am today.

He went on to say…”She says she’s a Christian wow…I think I need to get her a braclet what would Jesus do cause I hope he still here with me”

Eddie and Tracy have four children: Kevin, Brooke, Candace and Hunter.

Although there are always two sides to a story, this is obviously a very tough time for Eddie, so please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.

UPDATE: Eddie has removed his comments from Twitter.

GACTV.com reports, “Tracy, according to the publicist, called Eddie Tuesday night and asked what he was doing. He told her he was at his restaurant, Eddie Montgomery’s Steakhouse, eating with his 23-year-old daughter, Brooke. Shortly after, the divorce filing was presented to him at the table in front of Brooke.”

The publicist also stated that Tracy told Eddie she “can’t deal with the stress of someone going through cancer.”

UPDATE: Tracy has responded to Eddie’s comments by posting her own statement on Facebook. The statement reads…

There are two sides to every story. Despite what is being said, Eddie’s cancer had absolutely nothing to do with my decision. It’s what the public doesn’t know that finalized an extremely difficult decision that I was forced to make. I’d like to thank everyone for their kind words and support during this most traumatic time in our lives. For the sake of my children, I prefer to handle things from here on out in a private manner.
