Former American Idol judge Randy Jackson got some bad news yesterday as his wife Erika filed for divorce after 17 years of marriage.
And while the filing was not a total surprise, it apparently happened much sooner than Randy had thought it would.
"Randy and Erika had a plan [of how they would file] but at the end of the day she decided to file [on Friday]," an insider said.
"Randy is bummed out. It's not the way he wanted it to happen or end."
Erika cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the divorce, and is seeking full physical custody and joint legal custody of son Jordan, 17.
Their older daughter, who is 18, is not mentioned in the documents.
This was Randy's second marriage.
People reported the news.
