Julianne Hough and Brooks Laich announced they are separating after nearly three years of marriage.
“We have lovingly and carefully taken the time we have needed to arrive at our decision to separate,” they said in a joint statement. “We share an abundance of love and respect for one another and will continue to lead with our hearts from that place. We kindly request your compassion and respect for our privacy moving forward.”
Hough, 31, and Laich, 36, married in 2017 after four years of dating. The couple has been spending time apart, quarantining separately amid the coronavirus pandemic. According to insiders, the breakup was “a long time coming.” “They argued a lot and just had different viewpoints on important issues,” the source said. “There’s still a love there, but not in a romantic sense.”
