There’s shocking news to share about a seemingly happy couple.
The news was confirmed by TMZ which noted that Mowry, 44, filed docs in Los Angeles on Tuesday citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for the end of her marriage to the All American: Homecoming star, 42.
According to legal docs exclusively obtained by the outlet, Mowry didn’t specify a date of separation but asked a judge for joint physical and legal custody of their two children; 11-year-old Cree and 4-year-old Cairo.
She’s also asking the judge to terminate the court’s ability to give spousal support to either and notes that they have a prenup, adds TMZ.
On Tuesday the actress shared a post on her InstaStory that read;
“Letting go can be painful. But it won’t hurt as much holding on to an illusion.”
She’s since posted a lengthy message to her IG feed confirming her impending divorce.
“I’ve always been honest with my fans, and today is no different,” wrote Mowry. “I wanted to share that Cory and I have decided to go our separate ways. These decisions are never easy, and not without sadness. We will maintain a friendship as we co-parent our beautiful children. I am grateful for all the happy times we had together and want to thank my friends, family and fans for your love and support as we start this new chapter moving forward in our lives.”
Tia Mowry And Cory Hardrict Shared Marriage Secrets In 2021
The two actors tied the knot in 2008 and last year, they shared the secret to their happy marriage that was seemingly withstanding the test of time.
“A lot of people, they ask Cory and I, like, ‘What makes your marriage, you know, a great marriage?’ Mowry said to the hosts of PEOPLE the TV Show!. “If I’m being really honest with you — and we’ve been doing this for years — we don’t focus on specific gender roles.”
Explaining her idea of what gender roles are, Mowry continued, “meaning the women should just do one thing and then the men should just do one thing.” When it comes to what the couple thinks is a better approach to married life, the actress said, “It’s a team effort at our house.”
Cory echoed Tia’s sentiments, explaining how the Mowry-Hardrict household is run.
“We’ve got a loving household,” Hardrict began. “We try to teach our kids if you have equality in the house, that can bleed over into the world and that’s what makes the world a better place.”
On July 6 of this year, Hardrict penned a sweet message to Mowry saying he “loves her forever.”
“I’ve found the meaning of life because of you keep shining bright baby🌻☀️…Love you forever!! 🙏🏾✨,” wrote the actor.
In recent weeks Mowry has shared tweets about “putting yourself first” and “making space.”
