The usually funny comic, who is knows for her takes on popular songs and her signature ill-applied red lip, is splitting from her husband Joshua Evans, after revealing there were problems behind the scenes in their marriage. But she kept it loving in her message, which she said she made for friends and family.
"I want to start off by saying Joshua is a wonderful man and I am so in love with him. This has nothing to do with ‘he’s a bad person’ or ‘he did something horrible to me’ or anything like that. He’s a good person and I love him,” she said. “We have always had a very rocky relationship since the beginning. We’ve always butted heads. We’ve always fought, ever since we met really. It’s never been a perfect relationship.”
It is not unusual for her to post the video, since the duo have shared their relationship with the public since the beginning of their courtship.
“You’ve watched us date, you’ve watched us get engaged, you’ve watched us get married. We’ve shown you everything because we wanted to, and I don’t regret any of that, but, you know, we chose to not share with you the hard parts of our relationship. And there were a lot of hard parts of our relationship,” she said through tears.
“I wish that I could just send this video just to the people who I know care about me and Josh. I hate that it’s going to end up in the hands of all these people who are going to be so mean and use it as thumbnail clickbait and titles of news articles. It’s so gross to use our heartbreak as a way to get attention. So gross,” she said.
(We are not making fun, we are sorry.)
The comedian, who is a favorite of Jerry Seinfeld’s and has a show called Haters Back Off premiering on Netflix on October 14, will be taking a break from social media for a while in order to let her heart heal.
Meanwhile, Joshua posted his own video, titled “Heartbroken,” and also sheds tears.
“I want it to be known that I am not choosing this divorce. I don’t want this divorce. I want her, but I truly believe she thinks she is making the right decision right now,” he said. “I was faithful the entire time — it’s nothing like that at all, in any way. I would never, ever break that trust with her, so that’s not anything like that. I can’t just keep making videos right now. It would all be fake. It would all be a show, and I can’t. I just can’t.”
He said he’ll also be offline while he heals, saying, “I gotta go heal in private.”
