Robert Gulley

Speaking of Rep. Haley Stevens (D-Birmingham), the 11th District Democrat appears to have a strong lead in her race to return to Congress for a third term, but sadly, word has broken that the newlywed is newly-split. Stevens married for the first time on September 3, 2021, to Robert Gulley, a former Birmingham Seaholm classmate which she had reconnected with. While the proposal on an Oakland County lake and wedding in Shelby Township appeared to be fairy tale-like, it seems the magical mirror cracked with recent word coming out that the two are getting divorced. Filings from Oakland County Circuit Court show Gulley actually filed for divorce on May 11 – a scant eight months after their wedding, where he cited that the marriage has broken down and it is unlikely that it can be restored. The pair had been living in Waterford, but since the quiet split, Stevens has purchased a house in Birmingham. In a statement in August, Stevens said, “After careful thought and consideration, my husband Rob and I have decided to end our marriage. This is a mutual decision we came to at the end of the summer and we wish nothing but the best for each other.” Stevens said recently, “Sometimes things do not work out. I’m grateful for my faith, amazing friends and family, and my new home in Birmingham.”
