BOSTON, Sept. 26 (UPI) -- Boston Red Sox pitcher John Lackey has filed for divorce from his wife of three years who is battling breast cancer, documents show.

Krista Lackey underwent a double mastectomy in March and has been having chemotherapy, sources close to the family told TMZ.com.

Lackey filed for divorce in Texas, saying in the documents "the marriage has become insupportable because of discord or conflict of personalities."

The couple, who married in November, 2008, had a prenuptial agreement, the divorce papers said.

The divorce papers identified the couple only by their initials, a tactic also used by Tony Parker and Eva Longoria and Sandra Bullock and Jesse James in their Texas divorces, TMZ reported.
