Bob VanderWeide Rumors
Cheri DeVos VanderWeide, the daughter of Orlando Magic owner Rich DeVos, has filed for divorce from Bob VanderWeide — who left his post as the team’s CEO last December. In a document filed in August in Michigan’s 17th Circuit Court, Cheri DeVos VanderWeide — who serves as the Magic’s executive vice chairman — alleges that her husband is at fault for a breakdown in their marriage and that he vacated their primary home in Aug. 2011. In a subsequent legal filing, Bob VanderWeide denied that he is solely at fault for the marriage’s problems and said it is untrue that he left the home in August 2011. They have been married since 1984.
A picture of Rich and Helen DeVos with their children and their children’s spouses appears in the Magic’s 2012-13 media guide released this week. Bob VanderWeide is not in the photo. “Bob is not considered a part of the family any longer,” Magic chairman Dan DeVos, a brother of Cheri DeVos VanderWeide, said in an email to the Sentinel.
