Adrianne Curry and her husband Christopher Knight split after five years of marriage.
The couple announced their separation on the five-year anniversary of their wedding through their friend and manager Phil Viardo.
Phil said in a statement saying, “After starting a relationship with what seemed to be irreconcilable differences, the couple has reached a period where those differences are no longer appreciated.”
“The decision was mutually reached after it became clear to both that some perspective was needed in order to assess their unique union.”
He adds, “Not unlike all marriages, work must be put in. Obvious to both Knight and Curry was that their marriage would require more effort then a garden-variety relationship. They are taking time to see if they want to continue to put in that extraordinary effort. The couple has mutually determined that they are at a place where moving forward will require a step back.”
Phil added, “They still love one another but need some distance to consider their future. Both Knight and Curry decided to release this joint announcement today in order to preempt any potential rumors and gossip and ask that their fans and the media respect their privacy during this delicate period.”
The first winner of “America’s Next Top Model” met Christopher on VH1’s “The Surreal Life”. They got engaged on the season finale of “My Fair Brady” in 2005 and tied the knot the next year.
