On February 6 of last year, Elle King, singer and Rob Schneider’s kid, announced she was getting married to her boyfriend of two weeks Andrew Ferguson. Elle and Andrew made plans to get married this April, but their wedding didn’t happen. Around the time she was supposed to get married, she claimed to have “skipped out” on her wedding. Yesterday, Elle announced on Instagram that she’s divorcing Andrew, because as it turns out, they had actually gotten secret married less than a week after they got engaged.
“We secretly got married 3 weeks after we met on 2/14/2016. It was and will forever be, one of the happiest days of my life. This photo was taken today, 5/15/2017. A month after what should have been our big wedding ceremony. My heart is broken. My soul aches. I am lost. He is the greatest love of my life. He is my best friend. As we separate, and attempt to find our footing through life, all I can hope for us is that we both find happiness within ourselves. I love you. You’ll always have my heart. You’ll always be my first husband. Please be respectful of our emotions and our space during this time. Everybody thought I lost my mind and I did. So, be kind.”
Elle doesn’t say why she and Andrew decided to get divorced, but it sounds like it’s a crappy situation for them. I would assume calling off your not-secret follow-up wedding to your secret wedding isn’t a decision one takes lightly. But I’ll be honest, I’m shocked to hear this news. Who would have thought that the marriage of a famous-ish rock-style musician to her boyfriend of a mere three weeks would have lasted longer than a year?
