Rumors regarding Anthony Fantano and his wife Dominique Boxley’s divorce have surfaced as someone leaked their divorce papers on the internet.
Fantano is a music critic and Youtuber from America. His YouTube channel is The Needle Drop, and his blog and videos analyze and debate a range of musical genres.
Fantano describes Jello Biafra, the former lead singer of the hard-core punk band Dead Kennedys, as “very much my political idol” when he was young, he grew interested in politics through his music.
Fantano states that his time in college, particularly at the college radio station WSIN broadened his interest in music and media. Journalism, political science, and communication were his areas of specialization in his liberal studies degree.
He created and operated The Needle Drop as a podcast while doing an internship at Connecticut Public Radio in Hartford.
Did Anthony Fantano Divorce His Wife Dominique Boxley?
The speculations of Fantano and his wife began when someone released a court document which happened to be their divorce papers. The papers leaked after Fantano’s negative reviews of Ken Carson’s new album. The documents are not verified as accurate as of yet.
Fantano hasn’t officially confirmed any rumors about their divorce. His divorce has become a talk on Reddit. There have been several discussions regarding the matter, how his privacy has been invaded, and how inappropriate it is to leak such personal information just because someone disagreed with the reviews made by bim on the album.
There are no exact details on how the couple first met, but it is known that they met online in the 2000s, and the pair got married in the mid of 2010. They have kept their relationship private and rarely share any pictures.
Boxley has made an appearance on Fantano’s YouTube videos a few times. Other than that, she has kept a low profile.
As per her LinkedIn bio, she graduated from Bowie State University. Apart from this, no information about her is available on the internet as she likes to keep her personal life private.
