Michelle Kwan 10 Fast Facts, Biography, Wiki
In September 2012, Kwan announced her engagement to Clay Pell, an American lawyer, military officer and former director for strategic planning on the National Security staff at the White House.
In February 2014, he declared his candidacy for Governor of Rhode Island. He was unsuccessful in his bid. Pell is the grandson of the late Rhode Island Senator Claiborne Pell.
The couple, who met in April 2011, were married on January 19, 2013, in Providence, Rhode Island. Vera Wang designed Kwan’s wedding gown.
After four years of marriage, Pell filed for divorce from Kwan in March 2017 in California. Kwan learned of Pell’s filing without warning via a tweet that was soon followed by an online article in the New York Daily News.
A day later, Kwan filed for divorce from Pell in Rhode Island citing irreconcilable differences; Kwan attempted to serve Pell directly ten times in March and April 2017 but was unsuccessful. She eventually had to post the documents on the front door.
The couple have no children together but did acquire multiple assets during the union. Complicating matters was that Pell filed in California, a community property state, and Rhode Island, where the couple was married and Kwan filed her petition, is not.
On January 5, 2022, Kwan announced the birth of her first child.
Michelle Wingshan Kwan was born on July 7, 1980, in Torrance, California. Her parents were both immigrants from Hong Kong.
Kwan became interested in skating from an early age when she began to accompany her older brother to hockey practices and her sister to figure skating classes. She began serious training when she was eight years old, practicing around four hours a day.
Her demanding schedule was hard on the family, and by the time she was ten, the Kwan family could no longer afford to pay for her trainer.
However, Kwan was offered financial aid from the Los Angeles Figure Skating Club and began training at the Ice Castle International Training Center in Lake Arrowhead, California.
Kwan went skating at 5 AM every morning before school and then trained more afterward. She went to Soleado Elementary School, but in 1994 began homeschooling.
In 1998, she graduated from Rim of the World High School and enrolled in UCLA. She attended the college for one year, and then transferred to the University of Denver.
She graduated in 2009 with a Bachelor’s degree in international studies, as well as with a minor in political science. After college, Kwan began to study at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University.
Kwan and her sister Karen began their training with Frank Carroll in 1991.
