In a joint statement shared with Billboard, the singer and actress said they were “at peace” and called the decision “mutual”.
“With sadness, but much love and respect for one another, we have decided to divorce,” they said. “While the end of a relationship is never easy, we are at peace with our mutual decision and grateful for the life and love we shared for the last ten years.”
“To our friends and families, including our fans, please know that we are together in this difficult decision and that there is no need whatsoever to take sides.” They added, “We appreciate your support as we begin this next chapter of our lives and we wish each other only the very best in all future endeavours. Thank you, in advance, for respecting our privacy during this difficult time.”
Royce and Toubia recently celebrated their decade long relationship in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, where Toubia revealed how their romance remained a success.
“I think the fact that we like to take some trips whenever we can. Honestly, being able to talk to your partner about what you like and what you don’t like,” said Toubia. “You should never stop being boyfriend and girlfriend. Always remember the special occasions, small details, a written letter, flowers out of nowhere. Most women love that. I love that, and that’s something that I feel has helped our marriage.”
