It’s absolutely heartbreaking.
An exclusive report by the Daily Mail has just confirmed that Fox News star Sean Hannity is divorcing his wife after more than 20 years of marriage. The decision caught most of their friends off guard, who considered them to be fine examples as parents and as a couple.
What’s really surprising is that Hannity reportedly divorced journalist Jill Rhodes, 57, nearly five years ago, but managed to keep their separation quiet from the general public… until now.
A family friend reportedly reached out to the Daily Mail and explained that Rhodes and Hannity work so well with their kids together as parents that “you don’t even realize they split”. But split, they did.
Hannity Is Devastated
Although there are probably many reasons Sean Hannity’s divorce occurred, a family friend claims that it was because Hannity found himself overworking and that it finally reached a breaking point. However, it is important to note that this reason may or may not be true.
A family friend of Hannity’s claimed the cable news host ‘didn’t slow down, [and] it unfortunately broke his marriage.’
In a statement, the family friend revealed that Hannity is heartbroken over their divorce:
“Personally the reason for the divorce, Sean does three hours of radio each day in the city followed by TV in primetime, his workload created a lot of time away and it was tough on the marriage. Sean’s a huge family man, this was hard on him.”
A Joint Statement
Although they’re now divorced, Sean and Jill are working hard together to make sure their children come first.
In a joint statement to the press, the former couple confirmed that they don’t wish to discuss the details of the divorce any more than necessary for the children’s sake:
“Sean and Jill are committed to working together for the best interests of their children. Amicable agreements were entered into over four years ago between Sean and Jill. They maintain a close relationship as parents to their children. Neither will have any further comments and ask for the sake of their children that their privacy be respected.”
It’s always sad to see anyone get divorced. Especially when it’s someone who works so hard to promote traditional family values like Sean Hannity. But as usual, we wish them the best. And hope that they can find a way to put their family above all else.
