The celebrity chef says it is with “great sadness” that her and her wife have decided to get a divorce. The couple have been together for 17 years.
“It is with great sadness, that after 17 years, a tremendous amount work, careful consideration and heavy hearts, my wife and I have mutually decided to no longer remain married. In love, there is a season, a reason and a lifetime,” Cora said in a statement.
“Although this is not what we ever imagined, we will always have four incredible reasons to celebrate our years together: our sons,” says Cora. “We are forever parents to our boys and are jointly committed to raising them in a peaceful, nurturing and healthy environment.”
But despite this statement, TMZ reports that there could be a custody battle brewing.
