Taking to Twitter, the 60-year-old comedian wrote: "I think she really tried. Truly loves him. I like her. He certainly isn't the devil or anything, but I believe she tried everything to make it work.

"He made her laugh a lot and she embraced his eccentricities. She loves being a mom more than anything. There's my two cents."

The couple share four children together: daughters North, seven, and Chicago, two, and sons Saint, five, and Psalm, who turns two in May.
