Former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick and wife Carlita Kilpatrick have divorced, according to documents filed in Oklahoma. 

The divorce was filed on Feb. 12 in Canadian County, Oklahoma, by Kwame. It was finalized on July 23. 

In the post made on the Facebook page,  Freedom and Justice Trust Facebook , Kwame states that he lost his marriage on Jan. 24, 2008, long before the divorce filing, when he had the extramarital affair. 

"Honestly, I (lost) my marriage on January 24, 2008," the post read. "Certainly it languish(ed) and limp(ed) along for 10-years before the divorce was final...but the marriage was over that day."

The post, made on Wednesday, Aug. 15, goes on to describe some of the "low lows" the couple endured due to the scandal. 

"Even though I tried with all that I was able to give from my wounded, confused, and severely deformed soul...nothing would repair the breach of trust in my marriage," it continued. "In the midst of being constantly attacked, assaulted, and also maliciously pursued by my own government (and broad-based media), I struggled to be restored and reestablished in the Godly positions of husband and father. I was trying with everything I had...I didn't have enough."
