Author Scott Adams and Second Wife Kristina Basham Have Divorced — What Went Wrong?
They were trolled for their age difference.
Author and cartoonist Scott Adams and his second wife, Kristina Basham, have already gone on separate ways less than two years after sharing the wedding vows.
The news of their divorce was first announced by Adams. On Thursday, March 10, 2022, he announced on his podcast series Real Coffee With Scott Adams that he and Basham have called it quits.
He mentioned, “I am separated slash going through a divorce. Only reason I am telling you that is that if you see my ex-wife on a date or me, don’t worry about it because it’s a process that has been going on for some time.”
On the next day, March 11, Basham also took to her Twitter handle to announce two big things that were happening in her life. Firstly, she announced that she was dealing with a divorce, and secondly, she was battling cancer.
Her original tweet read, “I’m dealing with a divorce and battling cancer. Now I remember why I stayed off Twitter. A lot of older people acting like kids. Holy cow.”
Since they announced their split, there have been no further updates on their divorce process, as they have kept the information up to themselves only. Likewise, the reason behind their decision to get a divorce also remains unknown.
Some have speculated that it was their huge age difference that played a vital role in their split. On the other hand, some theorized other reasons. But the original reason still remains undisclosed, and it will stay the same until Adams or Basham decides to disclose it.
That said, the now-divorced couple was yet to welcome a child during their relationship. Furthermore, since his divorce from Basham, there have been no new updates about Adams’ relationship status. So, he might not be dating a girlfriend now.
Scott Adams and Kristina Basham were trolled for their age difference
Adams reportedly met Basham in 2016 and began dating in the same year. Since then, people have questioned and passed on mean comments about the couple on social media mainly because of the couple’s age difference.
On July 12, 2018, one Twitter user expressed their views on the pair’s relationship, saying that Adams was smart and knew that Basham was with him only for money; however, he would let her be with him because he wanted a young girl in his life.
Similarly, when the comic creator posted a beautiful picture of his wife on Twitter, another Twitter user, on July 8, 2018, replied to the post by writing, “your granddaughter?”
These were just a few instances when the couple was trolled and received disturbing and mean comments. There are so many like these on the internet.
They responded after getting married
After almost three years of dating, Adams and Basham announced their engagement on Christmas 2019, and they married on July 11, 2020, after being in 4 years long relationship.
But their wedding once again invited several trolls and mean comments — all because of the couple’s age gap. As of 2022, the author was 65 years old, while his then-new wife was around 34.
That said, Adams and his wife didn’t hold back after reading all the mean comments. Within a few days after the wedding, the couple fired back at the comments about their wedding and relationship, which was a sight to witness.
At first, the comic creator took to Twitter to respond back to the haters on July 14, 2020. He sarcastically thanked the “bitter and broken people” who had unkind things to say about his wedding.
He also shared that he and his wife found those unkind comments entertaining.
“Thank you to all the bitter and broken people who had unkind things to say about my wedding. We found it entertaining that so many professional writers could only think of one joke-insult…and it was the same one,” he wrote.
The next day, on July 15, the author’s wife added to her husband’s tweet and addressed the bitter comments on Adams’ wedding dress. She explained that he was going to wear a jacket and tie, but she stopped him from wearing them.
“It was 100 degrees out. Also, the wedding was in my backyard with only my parents, my grandparents and my siblings because that’s what I wanted,” she further stated.
At last, she talked about their age gap. She wrote, “im over 30. Age gap is irrelevant. I’m a grown WOMAN.”
That response must have surely mummed people who had bitter things to say about the couple.
Scott Adams was previously married to Shelly Miles
Before getting married to Basham, Adams was married to Shelly Miles. The former couple tied the knot on a yacht in the San Francisco Bay in July 2006.

The wedding was also the first marriage for the Windham, NY, native, who was 49 years old at that time. However, Miles was getting married for the second time and was 37 years old — and had two children, a 6-year-old son, and an 8-year-old daughter, at that time.
But the two could not sustain their marriage and divorced in 2014.
Who are Scott Adams’ ex-wives?
By now, you have learned that Adams has been married twice – to Miles and Basham – and both marriages have ended in divorce. That said, who are the author’s ex-wives?
First, let’s learn more about Adams’ first ex-wife – Miles. To be fair, there aren’t many details available about her as she lives a private life. That said, Adams has revealed that Miles moved a block away from him, and they remained good friends even after their divorce.
Additionally, it has been reported that Miles was working as Adams’ personal assistant, per a 2017 Bloomberg article. The article mentioned that Adams had transformed a bar area into a display case for Dilbert books and paraphernalia, where Miles hosted spa days for friends.
Now, let’s move to Basham. After her marriage to Adams, people started asking, “Who is Scott Adams wife?” Well, on her Instagram bio, she mentioned she is a Pianist, Violinist, and Future Neurologist. In 2019, she stated on Instagram that she was pursuing a Ph.D. in Neuroscience.

In her bio, she also stated that she is an “Aerobatic Pilot, Commercial Pilot, Flight Instructor.” Speaking of Instagram, she has amassed a healthy fan-following on the photo-sharing platform, with more than 3.9 million followers.
Moving to Basham’s family, she was raised by her parents in San Fransisco, California. Her father is of Italian and French descent, whereas her mother is of Middle Eastern and German descent. It’s currently unknown if she has any siblings.
Before her marriage to Adams, Basham was reportedly married to a man named Chad while she was still in college. With her first husband, she welcomed two children; Hazen and Marin Hilsabeck. The then-married couple eventually separated and divorced.
