Say it isn’t so!
Actress Tia Mowry has filed for divorce from her actor husband Cory Hardrict after 14 years of marriage in Los Angeles today, citing “irreconcilable differences” as the reason why.
In April 2008, Tia and Cory tied the knot in Santa Barbara, California. In 2011, the couple became parents for the first time, welcoming their son, Cree Taylor Hardrict, who is now 11, into the world. They became a family of four after they welcomed their second child, daughter Cairo Tiahna Hardrict, in 2018.
In the divorce documents (obtained by TMZ), the “Sister, Sister” alum didn’t specify a date of separation from the “All American: Homecoming” star. However, she asked a judge for joint physical and legal custody of their two children. She’s also requested the judge terminate the court’s ability to give spousal support to either, nothing the couple had a prenup.
Before the announcement, the mom chef took to Instagram to share a post with a cryptic message:
“Letting go can be painful. But it won’t hurt as much holding on to an illusion,” the post reads.
After the divorce was reported, Tia took to Instagram to address the separation:
“I have always been honest with my fans, and today is no different,” she wrote. “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.”
The American Sniper actor also shared a few cryptic messages on his IG Stories:
He shared an IG post that reads, “Acting off of emotions will cost every time.”
In another post, he shared a screenshot of a FaceTime call with his daughter, Cairo, with Stevie Wonder’s “Superwoman” playing.
He used the lyrics “When the summer came you were not around/Now the summer’s gone and love cannot be found”
That’s interesting. Over the summer, Tia, Cory and the kids took a family trip to Europe and appeared to have had a blast:
Sending love and light to both of them!
