Cynthia Bailey & Mike Hill Divorce Finalized Two Months After Announcing Their Split
It looks like Cynthia Bailey and Mike Hill had a speedy divorce!
Just two months after announcing their split, Cynthia Bailey and Mike Hill have finalized their divorce after 2 years of marriage.
“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” alum and the Fox Sports anchor wasted no time finalizing their divorce agreement. According to reports, a Fulton County court judge signed off on it Thursday (Dec. 1) making them both officially single.
As previously reported, after two years of marriage Cynthia Bailey and Mike Hill confirmed their pending divorce by releasing a joint statement back in October. The former couple shared:
“LOVE is a beautiful thing. While we both will always have love for one another, we have decided to go our separate ways. No one is to blame, and we are grateful that we remain good friends. We will always cherish the many memories we’ve shared together as husband and wife.”
“Many of you have been on this journey with us from the very beginning, and we appreciate our family, friends and beloved fans for your positive support as we move forward and start new chapters. Thank you for your prayers and well wishes!”
In the legal documents, obtained by TMZ, Cynthia says the marriage is irretrievably broken with no chance of reconciliation, and accuses Mike of “inappropriate adulterous relations.” As for Mike Hill, he has chosen to remain quiet and not file any response to the allegations. Reportedly, he signed the divorce agreement first, on October 20, and Cynthia signed on November 1.
This was a rather easy divorce being that the pair never intermingled their finances, taxes or property during their 2 years together. They had two separate homes, which each will keep. They didn’t have any kids together, and they’ve agreed neither will pay spousal support. Mike didn’t even retain a lawyer for the divorce process.
Recently, Cynthia Bailey appeared on “Two Ts in A Pod” podcast and was candid about what the “final straw” was before deciding to leave her marriage. The 55-year-old said:
“I felt like we weren’t friends anymore.”
On Monday’s (Oct. 31) episode Cynthia Bailey continued:
“I felt like it was just going toward we’re just not going to be friends if we didn’t pump the brakes.”
“This is not my first rodeo. I think friendship just has to be there in a marriage like, love is great, but friendship has to be there. I truly want to be with my best friend.”
Addressing where she is mentally, Bailey admitted:
“I do have good days and bad days.”
In a separate statement, Hill admitted he was “grateful” that his friendship with Bailey “remains rock solid” despite their breakup. He said:
“We’ve been thinking about going our separate ways for the last few months, so it was good for us both to have that time to process it all privately. I can smile knowing she’ll always be there for me as I will be for her.”
