Just two days after their two-year wedding anniversary and with rumors swirling regarding Mike’s behavior during a recent outing, the Real Housewives of Atlanta alum and her spouse have confirmed the end of their marriage with emotional statements, insisting that “no one is to blame.”
“God does not make mistakes! I truly believe in my heart Mike coming into my life was destiny. I jumped in, both feet first and gave it my all,” Cynthia shared in a statement to PEOPLE on October 12. “Although that journey has come to an end. I am so grateful for our continued friendship, and the beautiful memories that we made together. God willing, I will find love again. Whatever is destined to be, will be; and I could not be more excited for my next chapter!”
“I pray my friends, family, and fans will continue to be along for the ride with me in this awesome thing we call ‘life!’ Thank you for your continued prayers, support, and well wishes,” she added.
Meanwhile, in his own statement, Mike told PEOPLE, “I love Cynthia and will always love her because she is a phenomenal woman and a beautiful person.”
“Even though our relationship is ending, our friendship remains rock solid and for that I am grateful,” he noted. “Honestly, we’ve been thinking about going our separate ways for the last few months, so it was good for us both to have that time to process it all privately and I can smile knowing she’ll always be there for me as I will be for her.”
Cynthia and Mike, who said, “I do,” on October 10, 2020, as fans saw on RHOA season 13, also shared a joint statement on their Instagram pages. In the statement, they seemingly responded to a video of Mike with another woman, who flipped over on him with his hands around her waist.
“LOVE is a beautiful thing. While we both will always have love for one another, we have decided to go our separate ways,” they shared in their social media statement.
“No one is to blame, and we are grateful that we remain good friends,” they continued. “We will always cherish the many memories we’ve shared together as husband and wife. Many of you have been on this journey with us from the very beginning, and we appreciate our family, friends and beloved fans for your positive support as we move forward and start new chapters.”
Earlier this week, The Shade Room shared the clip below with their followers, noting that the RHOA alum had removed “Hill” from her Instagram bio.
