Dancer Julianne Hough has filed for divorce after attempts at reconciliation with husband of three years Brooks Laich failed.
Professional dancer and former "America's Got Talent" judge Julianne Hough has filed for divorce after attempts at reconciliation with husband Brooks Laich failed.
Hough and Laich first separated in May 2020, but the necessity of the quarantine imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic gave them an opportunity to give their marriage a second opportunity.
LOVE FALLS APART
The couple married in 2017, and are now headed for a divorce. There had been some talk of separation in May, and sources close to Hough and Laich revealed that the two had tried to work things out.
The former couple decided to go into quarentine separately. Hough stayed home in their Los Angeles home, while Laich traveled to their property in Idaho.
The distance and the time apart led to some serious evaluation of their marriage, the source said. Hough and Laich did try to reconcile and spent several weeks together.
Sadly, the decision to separate prevailed and Hough has now formally filed for a divorce from the former professional ice hockey player. According to the source, Laich didn't want the divorce.
Hough's last relationship before she met Laich was with " Live with Kelly and Ryan" co-host Ryan Seacrest
MEETING BROOKS LAICH
Hough and Laich first met back in 2013, after Hough had attended a seminar with her family. The seminar focused on shaping your own destiny, and shortly after Hough ended a relationship she was involved in. Hough revealed:
"The next day, my "Curve" costar introduced [Brooks and me] It couldn't have been a better time. We've been open and honest from day one."
But what brought them together wasn't quite enough to create a lasting bond. According to the aforementioned source, Hough felt she needed more than she was getting from the relationship.
Their last attempt ended up confirming that they couldn't overcome their underlying issues, and rebuild their relationship. The failed reconciliation did provide them both with closure and hopefully lead them to a new and happier future.
Since their separation has become official, Hough has been posting on Instgram, and she seems to be on a journey of self-discovery. Hough dated country singer Chuck Wicks for two years, up until 2009.
Hough's last relationship before she met Laich was with " Live with Kelly and Ryan" co-host Ryan Seacrest whom she dated for three years and broke up with in 2013.
