Kevin has been married thrice; Anna Melnikova (2002-2006), Clare Craze (2007-2010), Karen Hauer (2015–2018).
Recently, his second wife, Clare opened up that she would overdose on anxiety pills and that she completely lost herself after her separation with Kevin.
Clare, who is also a professional dancer was still begging Kevin to work on their relationship and was left shaken in tears after her ex-husband made it clear that he didn't want to reconcile.
At one time, she was so distraught that she went to a bar overdosed on pills and drank wine so much that she woke up to her father by her side in a hospital the next morning and learned that she was found on the Waterloo bridge by passers whilst she was on her way back home.
