Jennifer Meyers Filed For Divorce In 2020
Even though the couple officially split up in 2016, no one wanted to pull the trigger on the divorce until 2020 when Meyer woman up and decided it was time. Officially divorcing wasn’t the problem it was how they worked out parenting. it’s “a lot of work,” she claimed on World First Podcast.
She admits they struggled with severe things. “Stay[ing] on track to stay a family” was their priority for their children Ruby, 15, and Otis, 13. “It was a choice, and it was trusting in, like, the universe has got our back,” she notes. “But let me tell you something, the work is a motherf–ker.”

The jewelry designer’s relationship with her ex-husband has changed and it’s far from relationship status. “I can’t even explain [it],” she said of their bond. “He is my brother. I love him to death.”
