We have yet more sad relationship news today, as singer and former X Factor star Ray Quinn has announced his separation from his wife of three years.
Ray, who exchanged vows with Emma Stephens back in 2012, released a statement this weekend confirming the sad news.
“Unfortunately the speculation is true and Emma and I have regrettably parted ways. Out of respect for the privacy of my family I don’t want to delve into my private life too much, however what I will say is that our lives, after a period of time, have gone down separate paths,” read the statement.
The 26-year-old added: “Despite this obviously being a very difficult period in my life I am keeping very busy with my new music and will be continuing with my UK tour and the release of my new single as planned.”
Ray and Emma first met while doing a production of the musical version of Grease, and got engaged on Christmas Day back in 2010.
They went on to welcome their first child together, a son named Harry Frank, in 2012, the same year that they married.
This is very sad news indeed. Let’s hope it’s an amicable split.
