Apart from her profession as a singer and sound engineer, Kimberly Fey is renowned for her past marital relationship with Donnie Wahlberg. He is an American singer, songwriter, actor, record and film producer. The Wahlbergs are a popular bunch. Undoubtedly, the Hollywood actor Mark Wahlberg is the most famous of the 9 Wahlberg kids. Donnie is the older brother of Mark. That leaves, I would imagine, the 7 other siblings slightly ticked off and rather envious.
Born on 14th June 1969, Kimberly Fey is a recording engineer and musician who used to sing and work seasonally for then famous hip hop band “Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch” led by Mark Wahlberg. Back in the 90s, the group received a few nominations and awards. They also have a number one hit on the Billboard Hot 100. Kimberly and Donnie met when he was looking for someone who could assist his brother Mark with his record. She was working on one of their albums while Donnie from Marky Mark was a member of the same.
At a young age, she collaborated with various artists with talent as singers, brilliant guitarists, and an excellent music industry record engineer. In the entertainment world, she was recognized as Kimberly, however, the bulk of credits comes from her relationship with Donnie Wahlberg.
Her now ex-husband Donnie is also a founding member of the boy band “New Kids on the Block”, which enjoyed success and fame in the late 80s and early 90s. Outside music, Donnie also has a rich acting career. He has had roles and appearances in a few well-known movies such as “Bullet” alongside 2Pac, “Ransom” alongside Mel Gibson, “The Sixth Sense” alongside Bruce Willis, and many more.
Before her split from her ex-husband Donnie, Kimberly used to work as a sound engineer. However, currently after their divorce, she is currently pursuing her life as a real estate agent together with her business partner Selena Stloukal. Her work is based between California and Illinois.
The Marriage Between Kimberly Fey and Donnie Wahlberg
Kimberly was 22 years old when she met Donnie who was a member of the hip hop group “Mark Marky and the Funky Bunch” formed by his brother. Soon after they met, they announced a romantic relationship. Kimberly and Donnie became parents 2 years after, to their first son named Xavier Alexander, born on 4th March 1993. Together for almost 9 years since 1991, they decided to take their relationship to next level and got married. About time if you tell me but never too sure these days. They tied the knot on 20th August 1999. The couple was blessed with another child, second son Elijah Hendrix Wahlberg on 20th August 2001, the same day on their second wedding anniversary. Apparently, the family loved spending time together, but as Donnie’s fame grew in the industry, this couple did not last forever. The relationship continued but things started to get rocky and it all culminated with a split. The pair decided to get a divorce and call it quits after 9 years of marriage. Interestingly enough, everything happens in 9s in Wahlberg’s family. 9 kids, 9 years of togetherness with Kim, and 9 years later divorce.
In 2008, Kimberly filed for an annulment of their marriage at LA superior court, alleging an affair. However, the official reason for their divorce was stated as irreconcilable differences. Rumors say that her husband Donnie was not faithful and did have an affair with the Northern Mexican and “very pretty” actress Michelle Tomlinson. They split between January and the divorce process was finally over in September of the same year. Fey filed for sole custody of their children and received child support, with Donnie getting visitation rights. She also filed for spousal support and attorney fee from him. Guess who was the earner in the family. As they say, once you taste a lifestyle you never go back.
Kimberly has maintained a distance from the media after her divorce. While she lives a single life as a mother, her ex-husband Donnie got married for the second time in 2014 with the fabulous TV personality Jenny McCarthy. Together they have no children. Gotta say, at 48 today she still is a fantastic looking woman. Check her out and in the mean-time, I’ll ask what her secrets are to looking strikingly flawless. Maybe a scalpel or two, breast implants, and well, who knows. We’re all goddesses really in this case. Luckily though, I have found my own “Donnie” without all the shebang.
Although in her career Kimberly was not as successful as her husband, her own endeavors and the smart divorce settlement earned, added to increase her wealth. I’d say next time, work a little harder. She has thereafter been estimated with a net worth of ＄2 million all combined. While Donnie has a fortune of ＄20 million. Could have been ＄22 million if he had kept pleasure aside.
