The internet will remain undefeated with regard to viral moments and Ashley Darby filing for legal separation from her husband Michael Darby is no different.
LoveBScott, confirms with a source close to the couple that ‘The Real Housewives of Potomac’ star Ashley Darby has filed for legal separation from husband Michael Darby.
The source told lovebscott.com that Ashley filed for legal separation in Virginia as a precursor to divorce.
In the state of Virginia, it is required that you live apart from your spouse for at least a year before you can file for an uncontested divorce.
Ashley and Michael’s relationship troubles (and Michael’s infidelities) have been well documented on ‘The Real Housewives of Potomac,’ and this upcoming season will document their separation.
The couple has two kids together, 2-year-old Dean and 1-year-old Dylan.
Ashley released a statement confirming the separation.
“Almost eight years ago, when Michael and I said ‘I do,’ we anticipated sharing every single day together from that moment forward. Unfortunately, that is not our current reality.
We have decided to separate. We are aware that there will be many speculative views as to why we have made this decision.
People will be quick to assume that the causes were too much intrusion by reality TV into the most personal parts of our lives, age gap issues, cultural problems, or child-rearing differences.
Pieces of all these may have affected our pure love for each other, but no one reason is the root cause of our mutual decision to go our separate ways,” she said.
“We are now both at very different stages in our lives and have different goals for our futures. We both want the other to achieve true happiness and fulfillment and feel that we cannot do this together.”
Her statement continued, “While our romantic bond is broken, we will always love and respect each other.
We also know that true happiness can only be achieved by continuing to work together and putting our hearts and souls into raising our two beautiful boys, Dean and Dylan.
They will always feel loved and supported, for they were truly created out of love.
As this is a personal matter for us, we appreciate everyone who has been a part of our journey and ask for your continued support by respecting us as we go through this emotional situation.”
