The record just scratched on Eric Prydz’s marriage as his wife asked him for a divorce.
The famous Swedish DJ’s wife, Sofie, filed for divorce on April 27 in L.A. citing irreconcilable differences. Eric and Sofie were married for nearly 5 years and have 2 kids together a 9-year-old daughter and 6-year-old son.
They got married on July 17, 2015 and she lists February 20 as the date of separation according to docs seen by MM.
Sophie’s asking for joint legal and physical custody. As for spousal support, she’s asking for it, and wants the court to enforce the terms of their prenup.
Prydz who’s known as Pryda and Cirez D professionally made headlines in March when he claimed the only solution for the coronavirus pandemic was for all healthy people to get it, and suggested staying at home was misguided.
Yeah, he really said that, and got blasted by health workers. Prydz later apologised.
He rose to fame with his 2004 single, “Call on Me,” and went on to rack up hits with “Proper Education” and “Pjanoo” in 2008.
He released his debut studio album, “Opus,” in 2016, and won the Electronic Music Awards DJ of the Year in 2017.
Prydz also owns multiple record labels — Pryda, Pryda Friends and Mouseville Records … so splitting up assets in the divorce could get interesting.
