It was an emotional Monday for comedian and talk show host, Aisha Tyler. Today, she opened up, while on The Talk, about her recent split with her husband, Jeff Tietjens. As previously reported, the pair had been married for 25 years.
While discussing the situation, she told viewers and her co-hosts,
There were a lot of stories on the internet over the weekend about my husband and I getting a divorce, and those are true. My husband and I are separating, and I filed for divorce a couple of weeks ago.
Even though we’re separating, all I want for him is joy and fulfillment in whatever he chooses to do in his life next. And whatever I can do to help him do that, I want to do it.
I don’t, not in any way, see this relationship as a failure. I was with this extraordinary person. I had this extraordinary love affair for 25 years of my life. And that is how I see it. He’s a wonderful person. He’s been my best friend for almost my entire life. I’ll always, always love him.
