Can’t say we saw this one coming…
TMZ is reporting that actress Tia Mowry has filed for divorce from her husband of 14 years, Cory Hardrict. According to legal documents filed on Tuesday (October 4), the Sister, Sister and The Game alum cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the split. A date of separation was not listed. She is asking a judge for joint legal and physical custody of their two children, 11-year-old Cree and 4-year-old Cairo. Tia is also requesting that the court terminates the ability to award spousal support to either party, noting that a prenup is in place.

The former couple’s love story was well-known: Cory mentioned in a 2015 interview with Global Grind that they met when Tia drove past him as he was waiting for the bus after shooting his first film. “Her sister and her drove by, they saw me waiting and asked to give me a ride. I was embarrassed. I was downtown. They gave me a ride and we were friends ever since. They took me to Inglewood, so that’s how that relationship started.”
The couple married in 2008, and they were definitely the epitome of “relationship goals.” However, it seemed as if Tia hinted to the impending divorce announcement when she posted a cryptic message on her IG Story, which read “Letting go can be painful. But it won’t hurt as much holding on to an illusion.”
After news broke, Tia made an official statement on her Instagram. “I have always been honest with my fans, and today is no different. I wanted to share that Cory and I have decided to go our separate ways. These decisions are never easy, and not without sadness. We will maintain a friendship as we co-parent our beautiful children. I am grateful for all the happy times we had together and want to thank my friends, family and fans for your love and support as we start this new chapter moving forward in our lives.”
Damn, we hate to see this, but we wish both of them all the best.
