HSK Exclusive - The dirty details behind Russell Peters’ divorce are surfacing, which could explain why the Canadian non-funny man has landed the success he has.
Sources say Russell Peters reps the men’s team — adding his personal relationship with his signature ‘never leave home without’ Toronto DJ, Starting From Scratch, is one that goes far beyond being just boys.
This news comes after the ‘New Year’s Eve’ actor told The Canadian Press – after their 2010 wedding, he and his wife discovered they ‘didn’t know each other’. Now, sources reveal Peters’ former wife, Monica Diaz, simply decided ‘she didn’t want to share her husband with men’. Don’t believe me.. Ask Harris Rosen.
Here’s what Russell Peters had to say about his 2012 divorce:
“We just realized we rushed in and didn’t know each other and when we got to know each other we were kind of like, ‘Hmm, I don’t think this is going to work out for the rest of our lives.’”Sources say it’s no coincidence that ‘DJ Starting From Scratch’ tied the knot shortly after Peters’ divorce was finalized. We’re told DJ Starting From Scratch – whose real name is Mark Gagnon – popped the question to Shannon Alvares, a Toronto resident, in order to enlist her as the new beard to mask he and Peters’ secret boy-bond. The pair married in 2012, with Groomsman Russell Peters playing a starring role in the ceremony. To be sure, the Toronto DJ – who openly admits to being a “private person” and “doing big, elaborate, flaunty type proposals were out of the question” – dedicated an entire website – markshanwedding.com – chronicling the proposal, the bridal party, the ceremony, the reception…and even a “ tailor made” engagement film. The show must go on? Don’t you agree?
