Jack and Lisa Osbourne have spoken out about their decision to end their nearly six-year marriage.
Ozzy Osbourne‘s 32-year-old son and his 31-year-old wife shared a joint statement on their respective Instagram accounts Friday night after Lisa filed for divorce.
“Hello! So the news about us separating has probably come as a bit of a shock to everyone. But, we just want to clear the air and share with you what’s going on,” they wrote in the statement.
“So, first and foremost, we absolutely still love each other. Our family is the most important thing in our lives, and we tried everything we could for many years to make this work,” they continued.
“What’s best for our family right now is that we separate lovingly, and remain best friends who are committed to raising our children together,” they added in the statement. “We had 7 beautiful years of being a couple, filled with the most amazing moments and we will be eternally grateful to one another for that. We also have 3 wonderful children who we cherish more than anything.
“We are disappointed but feel confident that we will continue to grow our relationship as co-parents and best friends. Lots of love, Jack and Lisa.”
Lisa Stelly Osbourne filed the documents in Los Angeles citing irreconcilable differences. She listed the date of separation as May 4.
Jack and Lisa have three children together: six-year-old Pearl Clementine, two-year-old Andy Rose and three-month-old Minnie Theodora.
Lisa is asking for joint legal and physical custody of their children. She is also requesting spousal support.
Jack and Lisa married in 2012 and experienced a late-term miscarriage in 2013. The couple have faced other hurdles, including Jack‘s multiple sclerosis diagnosis.
Before getting engaged, Jack and Lisa had been dating for only four months, according to Britain’s Daily Mail.
