Jamelia to divorce after 18 months of marriage

Tuesday November 3, 2009

RnB star Jamelia and footballer husband Darren Byfield have called time on their brief marriage.

Two years ago the couple split, later reconciling and tying the knot in June 2008.

But this time there appears to be no going back.

The 28-year-old pop star has moved out of the marital home and directed lawyers to begin divorce proceedings.

A spokesman said: "It is with regret that Jamelia and Darren Byfield today confirm they are splitting up and getting a divorce."

The pair have emphasised that no one else is involved.

Superstar singer Jamelia has two daughters, Teja, eight from a previous relationship and Tiani, four with Darren.

A friend said the pair had vowed to remain on civil terms for the sake of the children.
