Stevie Wonder files for divorce from fashion designer Kai Millard Morris

Music legend Stevie Wonder wants a judge to sign, seal and deliver a divorce.

The Motown megastar is pulling the plug on his decade-long marriage to fashion designer Kai Millard Morris, a rep confirmed to the Daily News.

“Today Stevland Morris filed for divorce, ending his marriage to Kai Millard Morris,” a statement from the rep said. “As this is a private and personal matter, he asks that the public and the media kindly respect the privacy of Kai, his children, and family at this time.”

The Grammy winner, whose hits include “Superstition,” “I Just Called to Say I Love You” and “Signed, Sealed, Delivered I’m Yours,” has been separated from Morris since October 2009, the paperwork obtained by TMZ states.

Wonder, 62, cited irreconcilable differences and signed the docs July 26 with two fingerprints.

He’s requesting joint custody of the couple’s two sons, Kailand and Mandla, ages 10 and 7.

Stevie Wonder Victim of Attempted Blackmail

Damn – “Street Pirates” for relatives…

Stevie Wonder Blackmail: Couple Seeking The Star’s Money Charged With Extortion

Two people have been charged with extortion after police detectives say they arrested the pair for trying to sell what they said was embarrassing information about Stevie Wonder.

The duo, Alpha Lorenzo Walker and his girlfriend Tamara Eileen Diaz, have been jailed since their arrest on May 2. Both have pleaded not guilty and are scheduled to appear in court on May 16 for a hearing in which a judge will decide whether there is enough evidence for them to stand trial.

According to a felony complaint, Walker and Diaz attempted to obtain money from the Grammy-winning musician, who is identified by his birth name, Steveland Morris. An email message sent to Wonder’s studio was not immediately returned Friday.

Walker, 38, was on probation at the time of his arrest after pleading no contest to grand theft in May 2011. A judge issued a suspended three-year prison sentence in that case and he is due in court for a probation violation hearing May 31.

District attorney’s spokeswoman Jane Robison says Walker contacted Wonder’s representatives claiming to have embarrassing information about the musician. Detectives organized a sting and the pair were arrested. Police did not release additional details about their investigation Friday.

Walker identifies himself as Wonder’s nephew and is being held without bail because of another case.

Diaz’s bail is set at $95,000. Both are being represented by public defenders, who did not immediately return calls for comment.

Diaz was placed on three years of probation after pleading no contest in February 2011 to possession of marijuana with the intent to sell, court records show.

The case was first reported Friday by celebrity website TMZ.
