The former Dancing with the Stars winner and singer Julianne Hough and her spouse Brook Laich finally go separate ways after 3 yrs of marital life.
The news broke on Friday after days they tried working on their relationship.
Speaking on this Brooke the former hockey star 36 and the singer 31 gave a joint statement saying: “We have lovingly and carefully take the time we have needed to arrive at our decision to separate. We share an abundance of love and respect for one another and will continue to lead with our hearts from that place. We kindly request your compassion and respect for our privacy moving forward.”
They started seeing each other in 2013 when Julianne and her family were attending a 6-day seminar where she met Brooks. They confirmed their relationship in February 2014 and were on a long-distance relationship due to their working commitments. Later he asked her hand in marriage in August 2015 and they tied the knot in 2017.
The reason to split after 3 yrs was rumored that the couple had a tough time in their relationship.
But there were hints that they might part ways as back in September last year, Julianne said she is “not straight” to a source and she had trouble at the beginning to tell Brook about her sexuality and later he supported her decision.
She had said: “I [told him], ‘You know I’m not straight, right?’ And he was like, ‘I’m sorry what?’ “she told the publication of how she told Laich. “I was like, ‘I’m not. But I choose to be with you.’”
Further, a source also added that Julianne is a “deeply different person than she was when they got married.”

It also added: “She is proud of those differences and changes she’s made and she doesn’t want to go back,” the source said. “He is the man he is and he shouldn’t change a thing. But they shouldn’t spend the rest of their lives together — not as spouses, anyway.”
“They are both on the same page about that now.” “ It took them a while to get here, but now they both understand that and they are hoping to move forward as deeply loving friends forever who will always be supportive and encouraging of one another.”
