Let’s find out about their relationship. 

Wayne Brady’s Ex-Wife

If you are a fan of comedy, you know who Wayne Brady is. But there are very few people who know he has been married twice. Of course, you might know that he married his longtime good friend Mandie Taketa with whom he has a daughter, Maile Masako Brady. But his first marriage was to Diana Lasso, a Columbian musician born on March 4, 1975.

The is no reliable source that gives exact details about how and where Wayne met his wife, Diana. It is said that only people who are truly in love marry each other on New Year’s Eve; being told that, it seems like Wayne and Daina were in love as they got married on December 31, 1993.

However, their relationship didn’t go as planned. Wayne was 21, and his wife Diana was 18 when they married. Both were in the starting phase of their career. Even though they both were in love, they couldn’t manage their time for each other which ultimately led to their divorce. 

Wayne and his wife, Diana, went down the path of separation on September 21, 1995, after being married for two years. Unfortunately, neither of them came forward and cleared why they broke up. Some fans even speculated that the reason for their divorce might be the long battle with Wayne with Clinical Depression. 

However, Wayne talked about their divorce after twenty-four years. In an interview with Closer Weekly, he said,

My first wife is a great person, but you should not be getting married when you’re 20 or 21 because you still don’t know yourself. I think the lesson was not to rush into things.

Maybe both of them were having a hard time taking the responsibility of marriage and handling careers. 

As of now, both have established their name in their profession.
