Not Much Fun for the Director of Fun

Around the globe Bill Murray is known as a TV and movie star, an amusing amateur golfer, and a die-hard Cubs fan. Around our Palmetto State many people also know him as the co-owner and "Director of Fun" for the Charleston RiverDogs, the Yankees' single A team in the SAL. This morning the story broke in the Charleston Post and Courier that Mrs. Jennifer Butler Murray has sued her husband Bill for divorce. The Murray's bought a home in the Charleston area in 2006 where Jennifer and their four kids live, thus the filing here in SC. (1414 Thompson Avenue, Sullivans Island, SC if you nosey people want to look at it on Google Earth)
The couple's pre-nup is available in the story link above as well as the divorce filing. It ain't pretty. But my question is this, if she filed papers on May 12th why didn't anybody report it until the P&C did today, 17 days later? I mean, Low Country folks are very polite and all but that seems an awful long time to get around to reporting a nasty Hollywood divorce.
In other news, the RiverDogs are home against the Hickory Crawdads in about 30 minutes. Play ball! (The show must go on.)
