Mr Divine, 43, who is now an independent consultant, is one of three people arrested following a police investigation.
The abuse is alleged to have happened about 20 years ago at a home in Edinburgh where Mr Divine worked.
The two other men have been named as former residential home workers Gordon Knott, 42, and Brian McLennan, 31.
Edinburgh councillors met on Tuesday to consider a secret report into the allegations. Afterwards social work director Les McEwan said: 'We are aware of the police investigation and have been fully co-operating with them.'
