The most challenging one of our marriage. But we both love and respect each other tremendously. There has been no wrongdoing on anyone's part."

They continued, "Although we are in the public eye, we ask to be able to work through our issues privately. While it may be entertaining to speculate, please do not create false stories to fit a further salacious narrative. Thank you for your love and support."
