Julianne Hough and Brooks Laich have split after three years of marriage. The pair announced their split to People on Friday, May 29.
“We share an abundance of love and respect for one another and will continue to lead with our hearts from that place,” the couple said in the statement. “We kindly request your compassion and respect for our privacy moving forward.”
The couple’s statement comes after reports surfaced about troubles in their marriage. Us Weekly previously reported that the couple was “not doing well.” The outlet reported back in January that the couple “were having problems” in their marriage. But insiders close to the couple claimed that things were “totally fine” between Julianne and Brooks. The insider said that they were “working through any issues they previously faced.”
The former America’s Got Talent judge was spotted going for a walk with Los Angeles with actor Ben Barnes amid the coronavirus pandemic. Earlier this year, Brooks shared a cryptic message on Instagram about starting a “new stage” in his life in 2020. He said that he looked forward to “stepping into a new chapter in my life.” Julianne commented on his posting, writing, “so beautiful” with a heart emoji.
Meanwhile, Julianne has been without her wedding ring. Most recently, she appeared in an Instagram clip on January 4 for her new fitness project, Kinrgy. She also shared a video of herself decorating their Christmas tree without her ring.
