Singer and entertainer Tak Jae-hoon filed for divorce to end his 13-year marriage, legal and entertainment industry sources said Thursday.

Tak, 46, filed the suit in June against his 41-year-old wife surnamed Lee, heralding a legal fight over child custody and property rights, the sources said. The former member of K-pop duo Country Kko Kko reportedly cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the divorce.

Tak Jae-hoon was previously sentenced to a six-month jail term on a one-year suspension on charges of illegal online sports gambling.

Tak and Lee tied the knot in May 2001, and have a son and a daughter.
