Cesar Millan’s wife, Ilusion, filed divorce papers at Los Angeles court Friday, citing irreconcilable differences.
“We are sad to announce that after 16 years of marriage we have decided to file for divorce. The decision was made after much consideration and time. We remain caring friends, and are fully committed to the co-parenting of our two boys,” Cesar writes.
Ilusion is asking for spousal support and is seeking full custody of the couples’ two children.
Millan is best known as “The Dog Whisperer”, host and co-creator of National Geographic Channel’s Dog Whisperer, where out-of-control dogs and their owner’s are “rehabilitated.” The Dog Whisperer has also co-authored four books, including New York Times #1 Bestseller Cesar’s Way, and New York Times Bestsellers Be the Pack Leader, Dog Whisperer with Cesar Millan: The Ultimate Episode Guide, A Member of the Family, and How to Raise the Perfect Dog.
In 2008, Millan and pet supply chain Petco formed a partnership allowing the design, creation, and sales of Millan’s proprietary line of pet products, such as organic dog food, health goods, olfactory toys, treats, leashes, and collars.
Millan is also dog trainer to many notable Hollywood stars, including Will and Jada Pinkett Smith and Charlize Theron.
At age 21, Millan illegally crossed the Mexican border into California. He found work as a pet groomer and quickly became known as someone who could put the most difficult and rambunctious dogs at ease. In 1994, Millan married Ilusion, who according to some, inspired him to expand his clientele and grow his business.
