“The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Yolanda Foster and David Foster have decided to call it quits after being together for four years.
In an exclusive statement to People, the couple said, “Sadly we have decided to go our separate ways.” They did not elaborate on the reason behind their decision, but chose to focus on the positive side. “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.”
The couple continued, “We are grateful for the years we’ve spent together and believe wholeheartedly that we did our best. I hope that we can pave the road ahead of us with all we’ve learned and with the love and respect we will always have for one another.”
Yolanda and David married on Nov. 11, 2011. Prior to tying the knot, Yolanda was previously married to Mohamed Hadid with three children, Gigi, Bella, and Anwar. On the other hand, David has been married four times with five children.
The divorce came in as a surprise as the couple seems to be always in love. The stars of “The Real Housewives from Beverly Hills” also did not see the news coming. “Yolanda always seemed absolutely in love with him and was always talking about how proud she is of him,” a source told Entertainment Online.
