Mark Allen Met Wife Kyla McGuigan Met At A Nightclub
Mark Allen met his former wife, Kyla McGuigan, at a nightclub in 2011. The couple tied the knot two years later in 2013 and also have a daughter.
Mark and Kyla crossed paths when the Irish man was at the bleakest moment in his life. In an interview, he credited Kyla for saving him from spiraling out of control.
McGuigan was not unfamiliar with the name Mark Allen. As matter of fact, Kyla's brother, Barry, knew him quite well. The former couple has two different stories of their encounter from the night at the Antrim nightclub.
If it was love at first sight for Mark, then for Kyla, it was a gradual process. It took her some time to process the fact that she was dating one of the biggest stars of the snooker scene.
The couple went on to tie the knot in May 2013 in Monaghan. It was not the first time that Allen and McGuigan walked down the aisle. The snooker player was previously married to women snooker world champion Reanne Evans.
During the pandemic, if some relationships grew stronger and new romances were formed, the same cannot be said for Mark and Kyla. The two filed for divorce in 2020.
During an interview with Belfast Live, Mark shared that there wasn't any big reason for their divorce it was just that thing wasn't working out for them. Allen assured the media that the breakup was amicable.
