Neil had announced his divorce to his wife via a change in his relationship status – “Neil Brady has ended his marriage to Emma Brady”. His wife only found out when her best friend, who lives in Denmark, saw it, complete with a comment from a girl in Canada which read “You are better off out of it”. Nice. Still, at least she didn’t kill him over it.
