Bye Bye Mr. Bell! Jurnee Smollett is filing for divorce from Josiah Bell

We noticed an edgier, sexier, independence in Jurnee Smollett’s spirit this year that we attributed to her Black Canary role in ‘Birds of Prey.’

Now we’re wondering if Smollett wasn’t basking in the glow of a fresh breakup glo up.

According to a source for US Weekly an attorney for the 33-year-old actress dropped off the paperwork sometime last week.

Jurnee married Bell, who is 37, were married back in October 2010. They are parents to a 3-year-old son named Hunter. The pair last posted images together around Smollett’s birthday last October.

But Smollett also posted to promote her partner’s EP a few days later.

After that it’s all solo dolo for the both of them.

Jurnee famously defended her “Empire” star brother Jussie, when much of the public turned from supporting to doubting his story of an early morning Chicago hate crime attack last year.

If there is one thing that is for certain it’s that 2020 is a year that is FULL of changes. Hopefully we hear more stories of the quarantine bringing couples together but we wouldn’t be surprised if the ‘Rona pushes some partnerships to Splitsville.
