Rodeo Legend Ty Murray and Singer/Songwriter Wife Jewel End Their Marriage
Heartbreaking news is coming in about the news of Ty Murray and Jewel seperating and ending their marriage of 6 years. Jewel turned to social media to make the announcement on her official blog that you can see here. She announced the split by giving this statement:
“Dear World. It is infinitely strange to write those words, especially considering the personal nature of the topic,” she wrote. “My husband, friend and partner of 16 years and I have decided to get a divorce.”
“Ty and I have always tried to live the most authentic life possible, and we wanted our separation as husband and wife to be nothing less loving than the way we came together.”
“For some time we have been engaged in a private and difficult, but thoughtful and tender undoing of ourselves. Allowing ourselves the time and space to redefine what we are to each other with love rather than malice,” the musician continued in the lengthy post.
“We have no desire to damage ourselves and each other in the process. Who better than each other to bear witness to the heart ache of redefining our family? And who better as ally, while we learn to redraw ourselves in whatever new shape we find as separate people who are still striving to be the best versions of ourselves- as humans and as parents.”
By the sounds of things they will remain very close friends and will work together diligently to make sure that their son, 3 year-old Kase, will remain as unaffected as possible during this time of turmoil in their lives. She says:
“Our dedication to our son is unwavering and we are both committed to being the best partners in raising our son,” she said as a message to fans from both of them.
“Due to the spirit in which we have gone about this separation, we trust we can remain dear friends who hold each other in high esteem, which is so important to us as parents — as we wish only what is best for our son.”
Even though the marriage is ending they met as great close friends and that is the way they are going to end their time together as well. It is refreshing to see that these two still have a mutual feeling for each other but just realized that it was not meant to be and have no hard feeling towards each other.
