Leaving her husband for a fellow singer - Amy Grant
She was for many years (by all appearances) happily married to Gary Chapman and had three kids with him, and indeed this family life and love inspired many of her non-Gospel hits. However, she then left Gary for Vince Gill who in turn divorced his own wife Janis Gil (nee Oliver) and had a kid with him. Both claimed only being friends before their respective divorces but how quickly they got married afterwards and the timing of Amy's pregnancy announcement relative to the birth announcement left things a touch suspicious. For the record, as of this post Vince and Amy are still together.
