Jerry Springer's Ex-Wife Micki Velton - Details of their Married Life
Here are all the details about Jerry Springer's failed marriage with ex-wife Micki Velton!
The former mayor turned TV personality, Jerry Springer, who needs little to no introduction. The guy is best known as the host for the tabloid talk show 'The Jerry Springer Show.' The former mayor of Cincinnati City Council's political career almost came to an end in 1974 when he was charged with soliciting a prostitute. His bad luck came to light when the police found a lousy cheque that he issued to the massage parlor in Fort Wright, Ky. during a raid. The memo pinned on the office wall with the cheque had 'for services rendered' written on it.

This, however, wasn't the case as Jerry went on to win back the seat in 1975 with an overwhelming majority, mostly because of the honesty that he displayed during his controversy. Turning his faith around, Jerry quickly went to be successful not only in his political career but also in TV shows and movies, including a few WWE appearances. The peppery fact is that during his controversy back in 1975, he had been married for almost a year with his now ex-wife Micki Velton. So what do we know about Micki Velton? Let's discuss.
