Elliot Page Has Filed For Divorce From Emma Portner After Three Years Of Marriage

January 26, 2021 / Posted by:

Back in December, Elliot Page announced that he’s transgender, adding that his “joy is real” over being able to come out and live honestly and authentically. Many wished Elliot nothing but the best for the coming year. Well, nearly two months into Elliot’s new life, and it looks like it’s not all joy. It’s gonna be a year of divorce too. Because Elliot filed papers to divorce his wife, dancer and choreographer Emma Portner.

33-year-old Elliot and 26-year-old Emma got surprise-married in January 2018. Three years later,¬†Elliot and Emma released a joint statement about their split to The Daily Mail. As for if Elliot’s public revelation that he’s trans had anything to do with their split, they confirmed that they’ve actually been separated for over six months:

“After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce following our separation last summer. We have the utmost respect for each other and remain close friends.”

Neither Elliot nor Emma have said anything about their split on social media. A quick offhand remark on Twitter is usually the surest sign that shit could get messy, so only time will tell if this situation will go that way. But it sounds like it might not. The only thing that might have a whiff of drama is the fact that Elliot and Emma have reportedly wiped their Instagram accounts of all pictures of each other. So, they’re clearly done done.

As for the legal part of this situation, TMZ says Elliot filed documents in Manhattan, and that’s all we know, really. We don’t know if either will be asking for spousal support or not. I’m no lawyer, but I do know Elliot has superhero money.

And we have no reason for why they’re getting a divorce, but I have my suspicions. Emma is a choreographer, and her most notable work was choreographing Justin Bieber’s Purpose World Tour, and the video for his song, “Life is Worth Living.” Those happened a few years before they got married, but I would be willing to bet that all that time spent working with Justin Bieber embedded itself in her subconscious and that every once in a while Elliot caught Emma humming “What Do You Mean” while cooking dinner or singing the lyrics to “Sorry” in the shower. And honestly, that’s the kind of spousal annoyance you just can’t come back from.
