The 42-year-old Fast & Furious actor took to his Instagram on Tuesday December 29, to announce that he and Samantha were splitting up after nearly four years of marriage.
We, sadly, have made the tough decision to formally split and divorce after much thinking, reflection, and prayer. Our mission is to be the finest of friends and good parents.
“Tyrese continued, “We feel unbelievably fortunate to have met each other and profoundly thankful for the 4 years we have been married to each other. A trip with both ups and downs was our adventure together, but it’s a journey that none of us would have preferred to share with someone else.
We have so much love & admiration for each other, really. Within this friendship, we have both evolved tremendously; we have shared so many wonderful experiences and events, and we are both looking forward to seeing the exciting futures we both have ahead of us.
As if 2020 was not still incredibly grueling and exhausting for all of us, we needed to speak to each other about this now in order to hold this momentum in, Tyrese concluded, 2020 and not take it into 2021.” When we struggle with the truth of where we are, we will always accept your most heartfelt prayers and value our privacy at this moment. Thank you, Samantha & Tyrese Gibson Truly & Politely.
