Nick Knowles and his relationship with his ex-wife Jessica

Nick Knowles was a married man around 6 years back. He had met Jessica Moor in 2009 and after a wonderful courtship period the couple took their relationship to the next level and got married in 2012. The couple had a son named Eddie two years later.

Jessica had cervical cancer and Nick was with her during that bad phase in her life. When Jessica underwent the treatment for cervical cancer and recovered, the couple decided to give their marriage a second chance. But though they tried, the relationship could not be revived and by December 2016 the pair separated for good.

The reason for the divorce of the couple

As with any other divorce, people and their fans wondered what the main reason was that led them to drift apart in their lives. Nick has been honest on the show about it and said that it was due to his lack of commitment in the relationship. He said that he had not invested enough to keep it going. Nick said:

“My relationships have pretty much followed a pattern. They last six months and start off with me explaining that I work a lot, so will have commitment issues.

“The women involved agree that that is fine, then after a month I get a phone call saying ‘This isn’t on’. After three months, we split up, then get back together. After five, there’s another tussle. At six it’s all off.”

The heartbreak

In January this year, Jessica Moor has stated that Nick has not been paying the school fees for their son Eddie. She also said that the DIY SOS host had not carried out his promise. He had gone back on a plan to send their three-year-old son Eddie to a public school. Jessica made it known to all via Twitter about it. She wrote:

“As all parents can relate, children starting school is an incredibly emotional and happy time.”

She added:

“I did not submit a submission for Eddie as it has been long agreed by my (soon to be ex) husband that Eddie would be privately educated-a luxury he is in the position to afford, as he has done for all his other children.”

She continued:

“As such Eddie is enrolled to start private school this September (a school that me and my husband visited and chose together) except that he won’t, as I was advised by my husband’s solicitor that this promise has been withdrawn.”

Jessica further wrote:

“To add insult to injury-like many men in his position of wealth and power he has advised he will not pay any legal fees meaning that I cannot afford to fight for our son’s education.”

Jessica further explained:

“My husband has also said he will not purchase a house or give a settlement of any kind for us, this is disappointing but not unexpected-some people’s generosity is only present in front of TV cameras.”

This post later was deleted from Jessica’s Twitter account.

Nick has denied that he has not been taking responsibility for their son’s education. An insider revealed:

“Nick is distraught that Jessica has made these claims.”
