British comedian, Alan Carr and his husband Paul Drayton have announced their separation.
Releasing a joint statement on Friday morning, January 21, the couple who have been together for 13 years and married for three years said the decision to divorce was made ‘jointly and amicably’.
A statement released via PA read:
‘After 13 years as a couple and three years of marriage, Alan Carr and Paul Drayton would like to announce they are separating.
‘They have jointly and amicably made the difficult decision to divorce and go their separate ways.
‘We request that their privacy is respected at this sensitive time.’
The couple tied the knot in Los Angeles back in 2020, with Alan’s best friend, singer Adele, becoming ordained so she could marry the pair.
Alan previously shared on Michael McIntyre’s Big Show that not only did Adele marry the couple, but also footed the bill for the wedding costs.
The news of the split comes just weeks after Paul revealed he would be ‘offline for a while’ following emergency surgery in which he had holes drilled into his skull.
Paul, 50, said on social media: ‘I have a chronic subdural hematoma. They have to drill two small holes to drain it. Hopefully in the next few days.’
He added: ‘I won’t be on here for a while but will read all your messages as it gives me comfort and peace,’ before thanking his followers for their ‘messages and love.’
