“It’s sad but yes we have gone our separate ways. We are in the final stages of the divorce,” she said.

“We have been together for 13 years with children and we came to the decision together to separate amicably. I mean this is a person I once loved and cared deeply for. I would never want to go into detail about what happened and paint him in a bad light. I always want him to be great and do well and hopefully one day, he finds love again and for me to move on.”
