Ricky Martin and husband Jwan Yosef announce divorce after six years of marriage
Ricky Martin and Jwan Yosef both spoke out about the breakup news, asserting that the divorce was a decision from both sides.
Ricky Martin and same-sex husband Jwan Yosef have together confirmed their broken relationship after 6 years of marriage. However, the two still insist that they respect each other and will still maintain a good relationship after the divorce.
They said: “We have decided to end our marriage with love, respect and dignity for our children and honouring what we have experienced as a couple all these wonderful years.
“Our greatest desire now is to continue having a healthy family dynamic and a relationship centred on peace and friendship to continue the joint upbringing of our children, preserving the respect and love we have for each other.”
During their six years of marriage, the couple raised two children together, daughter Lucia and son Renn. Before that, Ricky Martin also welcomed twin sons Matteo and Valentino in 2008. He continues to raise his stepchildren as a single father.
The divorce news left the fans extremely shocked. Up to now, both artists have not revealed the cause of this emotional rift.
Ricky Martin first knew Yosef through the social platform Instagram in 2015 and started dating 6 months later. They officially appeared as a couple at the amFAR Inspirational Gala in 2016. That same year, the couple announced their engagement and married 2 years later.
