Tia Mowry and Cory Hardict have decided to end their 14 years of marriage
Tia Mowry and Cory Hardrict will no longer be together. After 14 years of marriage, the Sister, Sister star posted on Instagram on Tuesday that she and the American Sniper actor are getting a divorce.
Mowry wrote, “I have always been honest with my fans, and today is no different,” “Cory and I have decided to go our separate ways, and I wanted to let you know. These kinds of choices are never easy or free of sadness.”
Mowry posted a black-and-white photo of the two of them holding hands and wrote, “maintain a friendship as we co-parent our beautiful children.” She and Hardrict got married in 2008 and have two children: Cree, 11, and Cairo, 4.
Mowry said, “I am grateful for all the happy times we had together and want to thank my friends, family, and fans for your love and support as we start this new chapter moving forward in our lives.” Reps for Mowry and Hardrict both declined to say anything else.
People got court documents that show Mowry filed for divorce from Hardrict in Los Angeles on Tuesday. She said they could not get along anymore and asked for joint physical and legal custody of their children. Mowry and Hardrict have a prenuptial agreement, and Mowry wants the judge to end spousal support.
In 1999, Mowry and Hardrict met on the independent film Hollywood Horror set. In a 2017 YouTube video, Hardrict said, “I was waiting for the bus, Tia and her sister gave me a ride home down to Inglewood, and we got cool since then, and that’s how we met.”
Before getting together, they had been friends for a year. Mowry said, “For a whole year, we didn’t, as I said, kiss or anything, go out on dates. We were just friends,” “And then, after that year, that’s when we started dating, and that was in 2000.”
In the video, Hardrict talked about how he knew Mowry was the one. He did this while talking about how they met. “I knew Tia was the one for me when she was in my corner when I moved to Inglewood, and I had, like, two pairs of drawers to my name,” he said. “I was dirt poor.
I did not have anything, but she loved me for who I was and appreciated everything I did have. Then I knew that I would buy her an engagement ring once my finances improved, and she would be my wife.” Mowry said that when she met Hardrict, she had just gotten out of a “terrible relationship.”
“He just had loads of patience with me,” she said. “He was just right there for me and held my hand.”
