Mia Khalifa announces divorce from husband Robert Sandberg
Lebanese-American personality and former adult industry star Mia Khalifa announced her divorce from her husband Robert Sandberg. The former couple announced the end of their marriage of two years in a joint statement on Instagram. The couple celebrated their two-year anniversary merely a month before the announcement of their divorce.
Khalifa and Sandberg announced their divorce through simultaneous Instagram posts, in which they released their joint statements. In it, they announced that despite spending a year in therapy, they couldn’t salvage their marriage. Moreover, there wasn’t any singular incident that resulted in their decision, but rather a series of conflicts. The statement read:
We can confidently say we gave it our all in making our marriage work, but after almost a year of therapy and efforts, we are walking away knowing we have a friend for life in each other and that we truly tried. We will always love and respect each other because we know that not one isolated incident caused our split, but rather, a culmination of unresolvable, fundamental differences that no one can blame the other for.
Furthermore, Sandberg and Khalifa reiterated that they do not have any regrets about their marriage. Moreover, the two will remain “friends for life,” despite all that went down:
We are closing this chapter with no regrets and both starting our own, separately, but connected through incredible family, friends, and love for our dogs. This has been long overdue, but we’re glad we took our time and gave it our all and can walk away saying we tried our absolute hardest.
However, soon after the statement, Mia Khalifa tweeted that she would rather be congratulated than receive condolences over her failed marriage. This led many to speculate that Khalifa was indeed unhappy with Sandberg and their marriage was toxic.
