Former “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Falynn Guobadia announced her divorce was final from her estranged husband Simon Guobadia in a huge way digitally on Monday, July 26, by sharing an Instagram story alongside a popped champagne bottle emoji.
Falynn and Simon revealed they were splitting up by uploading the news on their respective Instagram pages earlier this year. The former couple was married for a year-and- a-half.
Falynn’s initial divorce post said, “I’m officially divorced! It’s a party! It’s a partyyy!!!” Although Simon has yet to comment on the finalized divorce proceedings, many people brought up his fiancé Porsha Williams after the model’s upload became viral.
Porsha, who was Falynn’s former friend and former “RHOA” castmate, announced that she and Simon were together in May after the duo was photographed alongside the “Dish Nation” co-host’s ex Dennis McKinley for Mother’s Day. Simon followed suit by sharing that he and Porsha were engaged after a month of a whirlwind romance.
“Porsha is designing her 3 wedding dresses as we speak!”
“Now y’all leave Porsha and Simon alone, Saints! Let all parties LIVE happily ever after.”
“Porsha and Simon are about to have a field day on the gram. 😭.”
“He’s officially Porsha’s PROBLEM now!!”
“I know she happy because he already engaged to somebody else … Simon wasn’t playing.”
While other people mentioned Porsha, a few pointed out that Falynn should officially change her Instagram handle now that she is “considered” to be legally single. One wrote, “Change your name now sis so we know it’s real. Lol.” Another said, “Change your Ig name, sis!!!! And ball out all summer.”
Falynn has been a bearer of good news as of late. Just last week, her boyfriend Jaylen Banks confirmed the pair was seeing each other on Instagram by uploading a touching post alongside a photo of the two of them. He said, “A man is truly a man when he earns the respect of a good woman and keeps her trust.” The self-proclaimed Atlanta entrepreneur immediately defended their relationship by sharing an additional statement in his comments section, “I don’t need approval from anyone on what I do in MY LIFE. We were best friends at first. That being said I picked up where a man left off. I’m happy and she’s happy. That’s it.”
In June, Simon had accused Falynn of having an affair with Banks during their marriage, and also allegedly of being pregnant after the mother of three shared a clip from her tell-all interview. The 57-year-old reposted the initial recording as he wrote, “The Face of Cheating Wife… Let’s start with why I filed for divorce. Let’s start with who she cheated with and currently pregnant for and living in a home I paid for – post-divorce. His Instagram handle is itsjaylanbanks, and this is how your generosity gets twisted. Let’s get started there.”
Both Falynn and Banks ultimately denied those allegations.
