Yesterday The Sister Sister Alum, Tia Mowry took to Instagram to express that she and long-time husband Cory Hardrict will be getting a divorce. Mowry filed the court documents citing irreconcilable differences.


“I have always been honest with my fans, and today is no different. I wanted to share that cory and I have decided to go our separate ways,” she wrote standing alongside Hardrict in a photo. “These decisions are never easy, and not without sadness. We will maintain a friendship as we co-parent our beautiful children. I am grateful for all the happy times we had together and want to thank my friends, family and fans for your love and support as we start this new chapter moving forward with our lives.”


Hardrict, shortly after reposted this meme to his Instagram story, “Acting off of emotions will cost you every time.” So, how did we even get here?


The couple tied the knot in 2008 and share two beautiful children—Cree (11) and Cairo (4). Tia and Corey met in 1999 believe it or not, they were on set for Hollywood Horror, filming. However, according to Hardrict, he met Tia while waiting for the bus.


“I was waiting at the bus stop…her and her sister drove by, they saw me waiting and asked to give me a ride. They gave me a ride and we were friends ever since.”


They dated for 6 years and in 2006 Cory popped the question at a Christmas dinner with Tia’s family present. Tia said, “He handed me this card and, in the card, and in the card, it said to ask my brothers to hit the play button, and the song that started to play was ‘meet me at the altar in your white dress.’”


They were engaged for two years before tying the knot on April 20, 2008 in Santa Barbara, California amid 170 guests. In June 2011, the couple welcomed their first child, Cree. Two years after that the pair renewed their vows. This was Tia’s first and only relationship according to the actress, “I did not date a lot. We courted for a year before things started to get serious.”

Earlier this year rumors began to swirl that the couple was not on good terms when an interview surfaced in January of the pair on Black Love: The Interviews.


Many moments from the interview were beautiful as the couple stared off into each other’s eyes, Tia and Cory smiling at one another and then, there was a moment where fans noticed that Tia cut him off mid-sentence and Cory did not seem too pleased. While something like this maybe minor, fans couldn’t help but speculate on whether or not they were truly as happy and in love as they portrayed themselves to be. Furthermore, it appeared that Tia seemed to hold the upper hand in the relationship leading some to believe that Cory was not respected.



Users took to YouTube after the announcement to shed their thoughts on the matter,

“8 months later they getting divorced. He has been cheating on her. Pretending to have a perfect family life on IG is a red flag.”

“This ain’t age well.”

“Courting v. Dating”

“This is the first time I heard Cory laugh”

That’s what we have for now. We’ll keep you updated Missies
