Country star, Darius Rucker announced he and his wife have made the decision to “uncouple” on Saturday via Twitter.
“Beth and I would like to share that after much reflection we have made the decision to consciously uncouple,” Rucker shared in a joint statement made by the couple. “We remain close friends and parenting partners and continue to be each other’s biggest cheerleaders. Our priority will always be our beautiful family. We have so much love in our hearts for each other and will continue to encourage growth and expansion in one other. Please be kind as we take on this journey, and we thank you for your love and support always.”
Rucker and his wife, formerly Beth Leonard, have been married for 20 years and share two children together, a daughter, Daniella Rose, and son, Jack. Rucker also has a daughter, Carolyn Pearl Phillips, from a previous relationship.
