She revealed that she slowly realized that she “wasn’t healthy” in the relationship and that she could no longer “trust what she and Belle had”.
Despite the end of their relationship, the former couple got together to walk Jennifer down the aisle at her wedding last fall
She told Fortune that the COVID-19 pandemic helped give her “the privacy to do what she needed to do,” adding, “It’s incredibly painful, in myriad ways, but I had the privacy to get through it.”
Despite the end of their relationship, the former couple got together to walk Jennifer down the aisle at her wedding last fall.
They put their differences aside for the magical day, as they each stood with their daughter as they nudged her to change. They were also seen exiting the ceremony together.
After their divorce, the couple reportedly split their combined net worth of $130 billion, but it hasn’t been announced how their many assets and sizable fortune will be divided.
The couple owned homes in five different states, a fleet of cars including a rare $2 million Porsche, an art collection including $30 million worth of Leonardo da Vinci writings and drawings, and a series of private jets.
