This is the kind of news that no one ever wants to announce, especially in front of millions across the internet.
One of television’s most familiar faces recently confirmed the swirling rumor that he and his wife were officially getting a divorce. Joey Fatone and wife Kelly Baldwin had been married for fifteen years and have two children together: Briahna Joely and Kloey Alexandra.
The former boy N’SYNC singer made the announcement to the press on June 2. “I was, at one point, married, and now I am separated and going through a divorce,” he told a news correspondent.
Before their marriage, Fatone and Baldwin dated for ten years on and off. Over the years, they’ve faced their fair share of rumors concerning their marriage and Fatone boldly addressed them, letting fans know the truth.
In 2013, he spoke out about his marriage: “We’re still married...kids are great. I’m deeply upset about the rumors - we’re fine.” Just the following year, though, it was revealed that Fatone had a girlfriend, Izabel Araujo.
Fatone and Araujo’s relationship never ceased and has now become the driving force behind the rumors of the cause of the divorce. The two made their first public appearance together on the day Fatone made the announcement at the Critics’ Choice Real TV Awards.
We are certainly heartbroken to hear of the news of another Hollywood family splitting apart. Please keep them all in your thoughts and prayers during this new season of their lives.
