Model ends second marriage after just four months


Sad news from Jodie Kidd's camp today as it's been confirmed the model has split from her second husband David Blakeley.

Jodie and ex-soldier David met in November 2013 and got engaged just two months later.

The split was announced yesterday in a statement released by the model which read, "It’s with sadness that David and I have separated. My priority remains my son Indio." Jodie's two-year-old son is from her first marriage to polo player Andrea Vianni, which ended in 2013.

At the time of their engagement, both Jodie and David seemed smitten, with the model saying she was "on cloud nine" and David describing their bond as "extremely special and unique and irreplaceable."

But a source close to the 36-year-old says it's clear Jodie rushed into things by getting married again so soon. "She now admits they rushed into the marriage and [they] didn’t really know each other well enough to make such a big commitment… It just wasn’t working so they mutually made the difficult decision to end things rather than stay in a relationship that didn’t have a future," an insider told The Sun.

It's been a hectic few weeks for Jodie, who was drafted in to replace Sally Bercow in Channel 4 ski show The Jump just three weeks ago, and was flown out to Austria to join the other contestants at the last minute.

We hope she has lots of family and friends supporting her from back home at this tough time.
