A Classic Love Story: Sandy Mahl Brooks
Sandy and Garth met at Oklahoma State University when they were both students. They began dating after Brooks settled a brawl between Mahl and her friend.
After some time, the duo started dating and exchanged their marital vows on 24 May 1986. Together, they share three children, daughters Allie Brooks, Taylor Brooks, and August Brooks.
With the rise in the stardom of Garth’s professional career, the pair’s personal life broke apart. Due to her former husband’s repeated infidelity and continuous touring schedules, their ways separated.
The couple filed for divorce on 6 November 2000, which was finalized on 17 December 2001. They divorced amicably with Brooks paying $125 million divorce settlement, making it one of the most expensive divorces of all time.
The divorce also made Sandy Mahl a multi-million dollar woman.
