Sources say Lightyâ€™s divorce from his trophy wife, Veronica Lighty, weighed heavily on him and he wasnâ€™t the same man in the final months of his life.
But Veronica Lighty told the NY Daily News that their last argument â€” in the moments before he shot himself â€” was not the reason Lighty committed suicide.
â€œWe had a passionate relationship. We fought all the time,â€ said Veronica Lighty. â€œMy husband was too smart of a man. He was a genius. No smart man is going to leave his children for fighting with his wife. That makes absolutely no sense.â€
Veronica, the mother of two of Lightyâ€™s children, said â€œI had filed for divorce last year, but retracted itâ€ two days before Fatherâ€™s Day. â€œThat was my gift to him,â€ she said.
