It looks like actress Carly Chaikin and her husband, Ryan Bunnell, are going their separate ways.
After a long courtship, The Blast has learned that the “Mr. Robot” actress and her husband’s marriage is over, despite only tying the knot in November 2021.
‘Mr. Robot’ Star Carly Chaikin And Husband Ryan Bunnell Split
In exclusive court documents obtained by The Blast, Carly Chaikin and her husband, Ryan Bunnell, are going their separate ways. Bunnell was the one who filed the petition. At this time, it looks like “irreconcilable differences” are the reason that the couple decided to split up.
It is unclear if the former couple will pay spousal support or what properties are separate or communal. Both Bunnell and Chaikin reside in Los Angeles. The former couple doesn’t seem to have any children together, which will expedite the divorce process.
On September 3, 2018, Chaikin announced that she and the TV director had gotten engaged. On November 10, 2021, she took to Twitter to share a photo of her and Burnell holding hands. She is wearing a custom Alon Livné wedding dress and white heels. She captioned the photo, “Dream wedding and dream dress.”
