Yolanda and David Foster are divorcing after nine years together. We totally didn’t see this coming as they seemed so in love on the ‘Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills.’ The couple issued a statement Dec. 1 confirming the sad news.
Yolanda Foster, 51 and her songwriter husband David are calling it quits after almost a decade together, including four years of marriage. The pair has been through so much, especially with Yolanda’s ongoing battle against Lyme Disease, and he always seemed so supportive of her. But the couple have decided to part ways in a shocking new announcement.
“Sadly we have decided to go our separate ways,” the couple told People magazine, who broke the story. “We’ve shared nine beautiful and joyous years together. During that time we experienced love, friendship and the inevitable challenges that come with managing a marriage, careers, blended families and health issues.”
We hope Yolanda’s famous model daughters Bella, 19, and Gigi Hadid, 20, are there to help comfort their mom after this sad news! In addition to her two daughters, Yolanda also has a son Anwar, 16, by ex-husband Mohammed Hadid. David has been married four times and has five daughters.
Yolanda has been battling Lyme Disease since 2012, which earlier this year robbed her of the ability to read or write. In January she blogged that, “I have lost the ability to read, write, or even watch TV, because I can’t process information or any stimulation for that matter. It feels like someone came in and confiscated my brain and tied my hands behind my back to just watch and see life go by without me participating in it.”
She continued, “As tired and hopeless as I feel at times, I have an undeniable spirit that will continue to fight and travel the world until I have the proper answers…I am a firm believer that God often uses our deepest pain as the launching pad of our greatest calling, so even though I have not found a cure, I have faith that I will.” We wish you well in these trying times Yolanda!
