The spouses announced they are getting a divorce days after putting up a united front on “The Tamron Hall” show with their 10-month-old daughter Brooklyn.
In separate statements issued to several celebrity news outlets, Moore and Daly asked for privacy as they hash out their split following two years of marriage. They also shared conflicting remarks about who pulled the plug on their union.
“It is with profound sadness that I regret to inform my fans that I am divorcing my husband Marc Daly,” “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star said for her part. “Due to recent and ongoing circumstances, I can no longer continue in the marriage. My sole concern and focus is and will always be my daughter, Brooklyn, my miracle baby. She was made in love and true commitment. I ask for our privacy to be respected moving forward.”
“I have come to the difficult decision to separate from Kenya at this time,” read Daly’s statement. “Our daughter has two parents that love her very much and in her best interests, this situation should remain as private as possible. I cherish our family’s good times together and will continue to co-parent in a loving way. Rumors, innuendo or false accusations only serve to hurt our family and will be addressed through counsel as the law permits. Please respect our privacy during this challenging period.”
The news follows Moore and Daly speaking to Tamron Hall on Monday about their experience conceiving Brooklyn via in vitro fertilization. Moore described Daly as “the love of her life.”
On her Instagram page as of this publishing, Moore’s bio still describes her as a wife and her name still has Daly on the end. However, some photos she posted from August and June show her wedding band and engagement ring are missing.
Meanwhile, “RHOA” fans have been sharing their devastation over the demise of Moore’s marriage, which comes after they applauded her for getting the happy ending she always hoped for.
“Noooooooooooooo she not my favourite person but I always wanted a happy marriage and family”
“Come on!! 😩😩”
“Oh no. Why???”
The reason for the end of Moore’s marriage seems to stem from an incident at a gala hosted by Daly, which Moore noted would be filmed for TV. According to a source, an explosive fight between the Dalys may have been the straw that broke the camel’s back.
“Kenya Moore lashed out at her husband Marc Daly at the Wimbish House on Tuesday night at the charity event for Black Man Lab that Marc was hosting,” the insider divulged to Atlanta Black Star Thursday. “She was aggressive and in his face and threatened to physically assault him and destroy his reputation.”
The source added that the couple would soon be announcing their divorce and noted, “Marc is finished with Kenya and her ugliness.”
