Mary Kay LeTourneau Dead - Controversial Ex-Teacher & Convicted Sex Offender Dies at 58

Mary Kay LeTourneau has died.

The former Washington teacher, who married her student named Vili Fualaau after beginning an illegal sexual relationship with him when he was just 13, died at the age of 58 of Stage 4 cancer, People confirmed on Tuesday night (July 7).

The exact nature of her cancer was not disclosed, but she was battling the disease for “several months,” according to sources.

She was sentenced to more than seven years in prison for child rape in connection with their illegal relationship. She also became pregnant with his children before he was 15, despite court orders prohibiting their reunion.

By the time she was released, he petitioned the court to allow them to see each other. She remained a registered sex offender in Washington state. The couple married in 2005, but split in 2017 after he filed for legal separation.

They stayed living together, but their separation became official late in 2019 and they started living apart.
