Mowry stated on Instagram “I have always been honest with my fans, and today is no different.” She continued by saying“ 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 two first met back in 1999 on the independent movie set of ‘Hollywood Horror’. They later dated for 6 years and tied the knot in 2008. They have two children, son Cree, 11, and daughter Cairo, 4.
According to CNN a petition for dissolution of marriage was filed by Mowry citing reasons for divorce as “irreconcilable differences”.
The ‘All American: Homecoming’ actor posted a mixed message via his Instagram story stating, “Acting off emotions will cost you every time.”
However Mowery reposted a quote from Vex King about letting go, hinting that something was about to change in her life.
“Letting go can be painful. But, it won’t hurt as much as holding on to an illusion.”
Mowry is asking for joint, physical and legal, custody of their two children Cree and Cairo.
