Kris and Anna Benson are getting a divorce. 

Fox411 (h/t Deadspin) has an exclusive interview with Anna Benson, a famous MLB wife who made headlines when she once proclaimed she would sleep with an entire team if Kris ever cheated on her. 

According to Anna, that is exactly what took place, and she has since been served with divorce papers. 

I want you to know that I will be here for you in the form of friendly counselor for those who felt love would conquer all and that this beautiful pairing would last forever. 

For if Kris and Anna can't last, what hope do we schmos have?

Anna sounded off with what went down to cause the new rift:

I’m very sad about this. Kris was my whole life. And he left me for someone else and he just abandoned us. I’m scared and I just don’t know what I’m going to do or how I’m going to take care of these kids. 

According to the report, Kris, who is now a money manager, took on one of Anna's friends as a client, and the two allegedly had an affair:

This is the second time he’s done this to me. I introduced her to Kris because she’s going through a divorce and I wanted to help her by getting someone trustworthy – who I thought would be Kris – to manage her money.

I am not about to say once a cheater, always a cheater. However, once Kris Benson cheats on you, he will probably do it again. 

Anna had similar claims back in 2006, via Deadspin. Anna continues with the evidence she has in hand:

It started with sexy text messages and that kind of stuff...She and Kris are both denying the affair, saying it was just ‘inappropriate talk. But I picked up his iPad and and I hit the Facebook button and looked at his inbox messages, and there were all of these sexy messages between them. And you just don’t talk with somebody like that that you’re not having sex with.

Ah, so, this all may be a lot of smoke and not any bit of a fire.

Kris Benson, for his part, has been relatively quiet in all this. 

He does manage to email Fox with this simple message: "As much as I'd love to comment about these accusations, I think it's best for myself and my children that I let things be handled legally, not through the media."

The horrible part comes in the form of the children they share and the claims by Anna that Kris is moving her into less than desirable accommodations. 

She signed a prenuptial agreement, but is getting $4,000 in child support currently. According to the former Baseball Wives star, she has been forced to sell her home and even lists the children as "homeless" on school documents. 

Kris Benson continues, via Fox411:

No one wins a ‘he said, she said’ contest. I've built my reputation for years, being fair and reasonable, and the people that know me and the situation will never waver no matter what is said – true or false. As to specifics though, I'll refrain from making any comments and take the high road.

We come to the final conclusion, which is that we haven't the faintest what is going on here. Either Benson is a cruel man who cheats on his wife with close friends and forces his children into apparent hovels, or Anna Benson has a fanciful imagination. 

In any case, it seems this marriage is completely over this time around. It's Kris who served the papers this time, and the couple has been separated for some time. 

And so the fairytale ends.
