Kaley met Karl in 2016 and they wed in 2018, celebrating their anniversary less than three months ago.

"Despite a deep love and respect for one another, we have realized that our current paths have taken us in opposite directions," they said in the statement.

"We have both shared so much of our journey publicly so while we would prefer to keep this aspect of our personal life private, we wanted to be forthcoming in our truth together. There is no anger or animosity, quite the contrary."

Kaley and Karl married in 2018

Kaley and Karl are both avid equestrians, and they met in 2016, marrying in a horse stable near San Diego in June 2018, eight months after Karl dropped to one knee to propose.

The ceremony included a horseshoe floral installation, and their reception was just as lavish with monogrammed burger buns, a shoeshine station and a beauty room from Sephora for guests to refresh throughout the day.

On their third wedding anniversary, Kaley shared a throwback snap of the two celebrating their five years together.
