David Foster and his “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star wife Yolanda Foster are heading for divorce, they have announced in a joint statement. The couple, who often flaunted their admiration of each other on the reality show, had been together for nine years and married for four years.
“Sadly we have decided to go our separate ways,” the couple said in a statement. “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.”
The statement continued, “We are grateful for the years we’ve spent together and believe wholeheartedly that we did our best. I hope that we can pave the road ahead of us with all we’ve learned and with the love and respect we will always have for one another.”
Foster was diagnosed with Lyme disease in 2012, just a year after she tied the knot to David. He supported her when she received an award at the Global Lyme Alliance Gala in New York City earlier this year, telling ET, “It’s no secret that Yolanda’s been sort of through the ringer the last four years. Yolanda has brought a lot of awareness to the disease and here we are tonight.”
The couple had no children together. Yolanda has three children from her previous marriage to Mohamed Hadid, including models Gigi Hadid and Bella Hadid. Foster was married four times before, has five daughters and six grandchildren.
In October, the couple moved out of their Malibu, California, mansion and she posted a photo of them kissing by the house’s pool during sunset. The split reportedly will not be featured on the Bravo reality show because filming had been wrapped.
