It’s been a pretty rough week for celebrity couples. First, Amber rose filed for divorce from Wiz Khalifa. Now, celebrity chefs Pat and Gina Neely are announcing that they’re parting ways.
According to WJHL, after 19 years of marriage, the “Down Home With The Neelys” stars are citing “irreconcilable differences” in their divorce filing.
“Today we announce that we are ending our marriage of 20 years for irreconcilable differences,” the couple said in a joint statement. “This was a tough decision, but we believe it is the best decision for us. As parents of two beautiful adult daughters that we love dearly, we will continue to be involved in each other’s lives as parents and friends.
Together we have built a strong brand as The Neely’s . Moving forward our focus will be on our individual brands and we are optimistic about our respective futures. We ask for your prayers as we go through this transition and honor our request for privacy at this time.”
While they made no mention of a specific reason for their split, sources close to the couple claim that they love each other, but have simply drifted apart.
