Eva Marcille and Michael Sterling of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” are divorcing after four years of marriage.
According to court documents obtained by USA TODAY, Marcille filed for divorce from Sterling, whom she married in October 2018, at the Superior Court of Fulton County on Thursday. According to Marcille’s complaint, the couple is “currently living in a bona fide state of separation.”
“This has been one of the hardest decisions I have ever had to make, but sometimes life takes your journey in a direction you were not expecting,” Marcille told People magazine of her divorce. “Our children remain our biggest priority, and the eight-and-a-half years we have spent together will always be cherished. We ask that you respect our privacy at this time.”
According to the declaration, Marcille and Sterling’s marriage is “irretrievably broken” and there are “no prospects for a reconciliation.”
The former “America’s Next Top Model” contestant wants “final decision-making authority” and primary physical custody of her children with Sterling on “a temporary and permanent basis.” Michael, 4, and Maverick, 3, are Marcille and Sterling’s sons; Marcille also has a daughter, Marley, 9, from a previous relationship.
