In a shocking revelation on Tuesday, “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Yolanda Foster and songwriter husband David Foster announced their split after nine years of togetherness. The statement was issued jointly by the couple, who confirmed the sad news. What caused the split between the much in love couple?
The couple told People magazine, “Sadly we have decided to go our separate ways.” They further added, “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.”
Yolanda and David Foster have however decided to take the split positively and spoke good things about each other, which reveals their mature side. They also mentioned that they are grateful for spending a significant portion of their lives with each other and had done their best to keep the marriage alive. They added that they will always have the mutual respect and love for each other.
Though the couple was together for nine years, they were married to each other only for four years. The pair has been through a lot, especially after Foster was diagnosed with Lyme disease in the year 2012. The couple was last spotted together watching LA Lakers play, while celebrating David’s 66th birthday about four weeks ago. However, it seems that they had spent their Thanksgiving apart as the ‘RHOBH’ star posted a picture with her supermodel daughter Gigi Hadid.
The reason cited for their split is said to be the fact that David was not by his wife’s side when she needed him the most. The 16-time Grammy winner had admitted in the past that he sometimes fails to support his wife and gets cranky only to realize later that she is going through so much.
Yolanda has of late shunned parties and red carpets to concentrate more on her health. David, due to his work commitment, has to travel worldwide and often spends a large time away from the ‘RHOBH’ star undergoing treatment. On a number of occasions when David had posted pictures of his luxurious lifestyle, Yolanda at the same time had posted a picture of herself from the hospital as she receives treatment. The gesture suggested he was not beside her when she needed him the most. Days before the split, the couple even sold their “dream home” as Yolanda was finding it difficult to manage the house.
The couple does not have any children together. However, Foster has five daughters from her previous four marriages and Yolanda has two daughters and one son from her marriage to Mohamed Hadid.
