"Our son has two parents who love him very much and for his sake we want to keep this situation as private as possible moving forward. We still have love for each other, will always cherish our time together and continue to have the deepest respect for one another," he wrote.
Now, Faris has broken her silence about the marriage breakdown, thanking her fans for their support on the new episode of her Unqualified podcast.
“Hey dear listeners, I just want to thank you all so much for all the love I’ve been receiving, and I truly love you,” the actress said at the start of the show.
When replying to one emotional caller, Faris hinted at the issues which lead to her spit.
“Life is too short to be in relationships where you feel this isn’t fully right or somebody doesn’t have your back, or somebody doesn’t fully value you,” she said to the caller. “Don’t be afraid to feel your independence if things aren’t right.”
Hinting at the end of her own marriage, Faris admitted that she often lost herself in relationships.
“I made that mistake, I think, a little bit, like ‘I’m checking my relationship off the list’ and if that would be the final piece of advice I could give you, that would be know your worth, know your independence,” she said
Though she didn't delve deeper into the reasons behind the split, a week prior to the divorce announcement she detailed how lonely she had been feeling.
“I play a character on MOM, I play a character in movies, but I also play a public character,” she said during her podcast. “There’s definitely a loneliness and, like, an internal element to being a performer. I feel like I have to laugh.”
