Teen Mom OG star Mackenzie McKee has announced that she and her husband Josh have decided to split after 12 years together.
McKee took to Instagram on Tuesday and shared a candid post announcing their breakup. “With all the messages I’m receiving and articles coming out, I wanted you guys to hear what’s going on from me alone,” the TV personality wrote alongside two images of the couple. “Somtirmes [sic] things work and sometimes, no matter how hard you fight, it just doesn’t work out. I am breaking my silence about Josh and I being done.”
She added, “I will always respect him as the father of my children but it’s time for me to find my happy.”
McKee shared more details about the split during an interview with Celeb Buzz, where she revealed she was “stepping into an entire new life and new me” following the split.
“I’m so thankful for the past 12 years with Josh and what they taught me. Josh and I are both still young with an entire life ahead of us,” explained Mackenzie, who shares three children with Josh.
“I wish nothing but peace and happiness for him and his future. Everyone has their own story, and this is mine,” she continued. “The old me would have released a story about how awful Josh is, what he did and why this marriage is ending. The new me understands that we are both walking away from this with deep scars and our kids love us both despite the pain we brought one another.”
“We are human, we are all human on this earth just trying to make it,” she added.
