On October 2018, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star and the lawyer got married in Atlanta.
But now the news is breaking on the internet that Michael Sterling and Eva Marcille are breaking up!
The 38-year-old Real Housewives of Atlanta star filed for divorce from the lawyer on March 23, saying that their marriage is “irretrievably broken,” according to documents obtained by PEOPLE.
“This has been one of the hardest decisions I have ever had to make,” Marcille tells PEOPLE. “But sometimes life takes you in a direction you didn’t expect.” “Our kids are still the most important thing to us, and the eight and a half years we’ve been together will always be special. We ask that you give us some privacy for now.”
The two got married on October 7, 2018, and Marcille’s lawyers wrote in the filing that they are “living in a bona fide state of separation.”
They have three kids together: Michael Sterling, Jr., 4, Maverick Sterling, 3, and Michael Sterling, Jr., born in 2018. Sterling is also like a father to Marley Rae, Marcille’s daughter from her relationship with Kevin McCall before Sterling.
The former winner of “America’s Next Top Model” and actress on “The Young and the Restless” wants legal and primary custody of their children, as well as child support, “care and maintenance” costs, and medical costs.
Marcille wants the court to give her an “equitable share” of the things she and Sterling got while they were married, as well as her own things. She also wants their debt to be “fairly split.
