Kitty Szekely Parents’ Divorce
Kitty Szekely had to deal with the emotional trauma of her parent’s divorce at the young age of 6 years. In 1995 her parents married, but after about 13 years of marriage and two lovely daughters (Kitty Szekely and Mary Louise Szekely), they decided to divorce in 2008.
Although the real reason for their divorce is still a mystery, some unconfirmed sources believe that Alix probably got tired of her husband’s constant jokes about their marriage and marital problems in his comedy shows. Others believe that Alix was already privy to Louis’s perverse tendency to watch women masturbate before this was recently revealed and that this may have contributed to the couple’s divorce.

Family Scandal and Siblings
Louis recently accepted the sexual harassment allegations made against him, and although he apologized for his actions, he lost the support of people like FX, HBO, TBS, and Illumination Entertainment who severed all ties with him due to his sexual harassment mess.
It is believed that Alix and Louis tried couples counseling in 2007, but apparently, it couldn’t help them resolve their marital problems and they eventually divorced the next year. As mentioned above, Kitty Szekely has a younger sister. Alix and Louis share joint custody of Kitty and her sister Mary. The girls spend most of their time with their mother in New York and visit their father from time to time (mostly on weekends).
It is assumed that Louis puts everything concerning work on hold when he has the girls.
