People meet each other in various circumstances. They talk, find similarities, make compromises, and decide to have a happily ever after in split seconds. But, with relationships come with the extra baggage called “responsibilities” and the burden of another person with you.
One must be willing to solve the problems together. Otherwise, no matter the aged relationship, you will end up separating just like, Van Halen’s drummer, Alex Van Halen, and his second wife, Kelly Carter, aka Kelly Van Halen.
Let’s find out why the couple divorced after twelve years of marriage.
Van Halen’s drummer, Alex Van Halen‘s ex-wife, Kelly Van Halen, is a designer and owns a company with which she proved that a famous artist’s wife is more than just a house-wife and their baby-mama. The entrepreneur, Kelly, was married to Van Halen’s composer cum drummer, Alex, for twelve years.

Van Halen’s drummer, Alex Van Halen’s former wife, is a very talented and business-oriented woman. The CEO of two companies has set her name in the designing field through her own company, Kelly Van Halen, KVH. Well, Kelly is an aspiring woman with extensive experience in interior design and residential building.
Alex Van Halen’s ex-spouse, Kelly’s company, makes luxury home goods which are handcrafted with quality yarns and are designed with a laid-back sense of comfort. Besides KVH, she also runs a construction company with her husband, Baron Roger, based in Los Angeles.
The company was established in 2005. Since then, the company offers interior design, residential design, and many other services. Both KVH and KellyBaron is doing very well and establishing Alex Van Halen’s ex-wife, Kelly Van Halen’s name as a brand of her own. This shows that Kelly Carter, aka Kelly Van Halen, is ambitious and insightful.
And with that, one can imagine Kelly Van Halen’s net worth to be grand as well.
Although Alex Van Halen and Kelly Van Halen’s first meet is not mentioned anywhere, the couple got married in 1984. The couple filled their memory buckets quite big before calling quits on their decades-long marriage in 1996.
Plus, Alex Van Halen’s former partner, Kelly, gave birth to their only child, Aric Van Halen, on October 6, 1989.
Sadly, not all people are fated to be together for a lifetime. Few people come into life, just to make memories and learn from them. Hence, Alex Van Halen and Kelly Van Halen’s relationship fell apart. However, they would not be regretting their decisions as both the individuals look to be doing very well in their respective lives.
After their divorce, Kelly Carter’s ex-husband Alex Van Halen re-married Stine Schyberg, in 2000. The couple shares a son, Malcolm Van Halen, together. Before Alex’s happily ever after, he was also married to Valeri Kendall from June 1983 and got divorced in 1984.

Likewise, Kelly Van Halen found her perfect match in a talented man, Baron Rogers. The couple married and gave birth to a beautiful daughter named Stella. Unfortunately, Kelly Van Halen’s daughter, Stella, developed a nut allergy, and Kelly made sure her daughter’s headmaster knew the situation.
Now, let’s suppose your child is a nut-allergic, your daughter’s headmaster assures you about the implementation of allergic policies and ends up believing in Jesus to cure her allergy. Sinister!!
A similar situation occurred in Kelly Van Halen’s daughter’s case. Although she was ensured that the authorities were trained and willing to administer epinephrine, it was later revealed that Berkeley Hall ran in the principles of the Christian Science. She sued the school for fraud and refusal to refund tuition fees.
Van Halen sued Alex Van Halen’s ex-wife, Kelly Van Halen, for using her name in the trade. More specifically, Kelly’s ex-husband’s last name, Alex Van Halen. The metal band Van Halen sued her, claiming that her trademarks were confusingly similar to their own. And they were worried that Kelly was diluting Van Halen’s name.

However, after two decades of divorce and long years of court hearings, both sides decided that the lawsuit should be dismissed. Kelly Van Halen was allowed to use the name. However, as part of the settlement, Kelly agreed to not put her name no-where near music-related products. Furthermore, Kelly was to use “Kelly Van Halen” with another word, ‘Designer Originals by Kelly Van Halen.”
Although the couple did not last long, their divorce gifted them with better partners to spend their lives with. Let’s hope they live comfortably and full of love.
