After nearly nine years of marriage, Real Housewives of Atlanta star Drew Sidora and her husband Ralph Pittman have called it quits. The couple, who have been together since 2014, announced their split on Friday.
The news shocks fans of the Bravo series who have followed the couple’s journey since they first appeared on RHOA.
After Nearly Nine Years Together, Drew Sidora And Ralph Pittman Are Parting Ways
PEOPLE has confirmed that Drew Sidora and Ralph Pittman of the Real Housewives of Atlanta are officially ending their marriage. “Love is a beautiful thing,” Pittman, 37, told in an exclusive statement in response to a question.
“Unfortunately, we have made the difficult decision to move on to our next chapters, independent of each other. Drew and I have decided to file for divorce. We have three amazing young children whose mindset and growth are most important. As we navigate this difficult time, I ask that you please respect our privacy.” He added.
According to the information obtained, the documents indicated that Pittman filed for divorce on Monday. After nearly nine years and several seasons of disputes with their co-stars, he is trying to end his relationship with the actress, The Game, after almost nine years and several seasons together.
In Pittman’s papers, he listed the couple’s separation date as last Thursday. He stated It’s doubtful there will be any chance for the couple to reconcile, according to the papers.
Despite Her Co-Stars’ Rumblings, She Revealed Why She Stayed With Him
There were a lot of rumblings from her co-stars and fans who, because of Pittman’s lousy reputation and constant gaslighting of the singer and actress, often questioned why she stayed with him despite all the rumblings from her co-stars and fans.
“I think people don’t get to see the layers of our marriage and who we are full. Especially Ralph, people might watch it and say, ‘Well, why is she married to someone like this?” her answer was when we asked her why she married him. “But you don’t see the other sides of him. He’s an incredible father. He is very affectionate. He will give the shirt off of his back to someone. He’s extremely giving, extremely caring, God-fearing.”
She said, “I hope, as people continue to watch and we are on, that people will learn much more about us and see the other side. We laugh, we joke, we’ve got chemistry.” In addition, she did not blame being on the show for the difficulties she and Pittman were experiencing in their relationship. During our interview, she told us that she believed it was beneficial for them to be on the show.
In 2014, Sidora And Pittman Were Married
Sidora and Pittman have been dating for three months, and Pittman asked her to marry him in June 2014. During Pittman’s visit to Sidora’s building, he gave her a tiki torch and rose petals with which he decorated the roof. According to People, Pittman took Sidora there.
In an interview with a magazine, Pittman explained that Sidora had begun to cry after the incident. A few months after the couple got engaged, People reported they were married on a beach in Los Angeles two months later.
“We had been planning to do a big wedding, but Ralph’s lease was up, and I wanted him to move in,” Sidora told the magazine of her decision. “We wanted to set a good example for Josiah, so we decided just to do a small wedding on the beach.”
The couple happily married for many years, but something changed recently. The two have now decided to end their marriage and move on with their lives separately. This will surely surprise those following their relationship for so long, but it is also an important reminder that even long-term relationships can end.
