In September 2017, Louise came on ITV’s This Morning show and revealed that she and Jamie have separated. Their divorce was finalized on 29 December 2017. The couple has joint physical and legal custody of their children. The court papers reveal that Louise blamed Jamie’s unreasonable behavior as the main reason for the separation. A source said:
“Louise was a devoted wife and mother and felt strongly about needing her own career, fame and money. By expressing her independence she was trying to push Jamie to wake up – she never wanted the divorce to materialise.”
Louise had always supported Jamie in his career. Her career had taken a back seat when she became a mother. The source further said:
“Jamie’s been doing his thing since they married and Louise wanted to do hers for herself. She needed him to stand by her while she did hers.”
“Jamie wanted the old Louise back, that’s the issue. She feels destroyed, furious and blames him. She was telling friends how she loves her family deeply and felt conflicted about letting Jamie go because of her enduring love for him.”
