The wife of Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis police officer who was charged with the third-degree murder of George Floyd, is seeking to change her name after filing for divorce. Kellie May Chauvin is also seeking the titles to both of their homes, in Oakdale, Minnesota, and Windermere, Florida.

Kellie Chauvin, 45, separated from her husband and filed for divorce on May 28. In the filing, she cited an “irretrievable breakdown.” The two were married in June 2010.

Prior to their marriage, Kellie Chauvin at different times used the last names “Thao” and “Xiong.” Her next name has not been disclosed.

While seeking both properties that the couple owns, she has allowed for equal division of the bank accounts and vehicles.

Kellie Chauvin has two children from a previous marriage.

In a statement posted Friday on Facebook, Kellie Chauvin's lawyers said she is “devastated by Mr. Floyd’s death."

“While Ms. Chauvin has no children from her current marriage, she respectfully requests that her children, her elder parents, and her extended family be given safety and privacy during this difficult time.”

According to a profile written about her in 2018, Kellie Chauvin was born in Laos and moved to the U.S. with her family in 1974 after escaping a refugee camp.

She met Derek Chauvin when he brought in a suspect for medical treatment at a facility where she was working.

Kellie Chauvin was crowned Mrs. Minnesota in 2018. She previously worked as a realtor for ReMax.
