While the father of two didn’t give a specific reason for the end of their eight-year marriage, he made it clear “that there is no one to blame, that there’s no event that triggered this decision, that no one is the victim” and that they did everything they could to try to make their relationship work.
“I think we’ve both come to realize that we are just two very different people, with very different personalities and perspectives,” he explained, “who just don’t see eye to eye on a lot of life fundamentals, those which are the building blocks for a happy and healthy marriage.”
Ashley also shared a post in which she echoed J.P.’s sentiments that they “created the most beautiful children” and that the memories they formed together won’t ever be forgotten.
“Our differences have taken a toll on our relationship,” she agreed, “and after years of attempting to repair the damage, we’ve decided that it is in our family’s best interest to create new and separate lives for our children.”
Both stars then asked for privacy and emphasized their children remain their top priority.
