Vivek Ranadive’s wife, Deborah Addicott, has been separated from the businessman for 24 years. The couple share three kids, with two having joined their father in the finance and basketball world.
Addicott and Ranadive tied the knot in 1979 and were married for two decades. As stated by their oldest son, cultural difference was one of the reasons for their separation.
The Indian-American businessman Vivek Ranadive has previously stated he had won in many areas of his life but failed in marriage.
Deborah continues to have a strong bond with her kids but has never been seen with her ex-husband since the divorce.
Earlier this year, Ranadive was rumored to be on the list of one of many gunning to buy the NHL franchise Ottawa Senators. But in the end, Michael Andlauer became the new owner of the hockey team.
Meet Vivek Ranadivé Wife, Deborah Addicott
Vivek Ranadivé’s wife, Deborah Addicott, is a former nurse who had been living with her grandmother when she first met the businessman. Described as a sweet, gentle person by her former partner, Deborah currently runs Destiny Coyote Ranch.
The ranch is located in Aptos Valley and was established in 2017. The former couple had met on a blind date, and the connection between the two was instant.
The couple tied the knot in 1979, not long after their first meeting. At the time, Vivek had been accepted to Havard Business School but deferred to earn enough money to attend. The couple moved to Southern California and decided to return to Boston so that Vivek could get his MBA.
The couple did a lot of back and forth between the East and West Coasts. But in 1983, they finally settled in California in an apartment in Menlo Park.
The couple went on to become parents to three kids, and it seemed as if they were living their best lives. But two decades of their companionship came to an end in 1999 after Deborah filed for divorce.
Vivek had previously said he had a lot of hurt about his separation from his spouse. He felt he had done everything right and couldn’t pinpoint what went wrong in their marriage.
Nonetheless, the couple has moved on in their respective lives and continues to have a great relationship with their kids. Deborah is available on Instagram with the username @destinyprayranch but has kept her handle private.
