Vanderpump Rules stars Tom Schwartz and Katie Maloney-Schwartz have called it quits after 12 years together.
Schwartz and Maloney posted separate announcements to their respective Instagram accounts to share the news with their fans.
“I never thought I would have to make an announcement like this. But I feel it’s important that I’m open about my life with you,” Maloney began in the caption of a carousel of photos of the couple.
“After 12 years on an adventure through life together Tom and I are ending our marriage. This ending is not met with resentment or animosity, no sides to choose. We have deep admiration for one another that will always remain and we cherish our friendship.”
“Although we may be on different paths we will continue to love and support one another’s happiness. Thank you for all the kind words and support,” Maloney concluded.
Schwartz also shared an emotional message on Instagram announcing the split. “Well this sucks. How am I supposed to capture 12 years of love in a f–in canned Instagram caption,” he began. “I’m not quite ready to use the ‘D’ word bc it’s too painful. Yes my heart aches but I’ll be ok.”
“Fully respect Katie’s decision and we’ve had healthy, productive conversations about it. It would be far sadder if she decided to stay with me whilst not happy,” he wrote, adding that “we had some of the most blissful, romantic, fun times humanly possible over the course of our relationship” and that Maloney has “taught me so much about love & being a better partner.”
Maloney and Schwartz were married in 2016, but filed the official paperwork to be legally wed in 2019.
