Colton Haynes, 29, has split from his husband, celebrity florist Jeff Leatham, 46. They married just six months ago.
The pair wore matching suits to their star-studded wedding in Palm Springs last October, officiated by Kris Jenner and attended by Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello, Melanie Griffith, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Lisa Rinna and Chelsea Clinton. The wedding came just months after the pair got publicly engaged, announced last Valentine’s Day. Haynes took to Twitter after the ceremony to say,
“I can’t wait for y’all to see our wedding photos! They are epic & I’m still in shock & so happy :) Married life feels so incredible ”
He also shared a video of the pair kissing while Cher sings I Got You Babe which is fitting because the engagement had a little help from the legendary star. She recorded a special video message for Haynes, which played as Leatham popped the question.
Haynes told E! News,
“I’m so blessed and happy for the future and my life together with Jeff.”
But an insider told Us Weekly,
“Jeff and Colton have been having relationship issues since a couple months after the wedding. Since Colton stopped talking to a lot of his old friends, he was getting really depressed and didn’t feel like himself.”
The source adds that the Arrow actor recently went out with his friends to a gay bar in Los Angeles and told people that he was single.
Haynes mother just died from liver complications in March, and he recently posted a preview of a song titled Man It Sucks last Thursday, May 3.
“Man it sucks
When someone figures out your games
and don’t wanna play ‘em no more
We’re crying in our bed
and making our way to the floor
Man it sucks
And I don’t like when you’re staying out all night
and never answer your phone
I follow you around the world just to be left alone
And man it sucks.”
Haynes has now removed all images of Leatham from his Instagram and unfollowed his husband’s account. (Pics still remain on Leatham’s Instagram of Haynes…)
Break-ups are never good and divorce is even worse for ANYONE, but celebrity and social media sharing must compound the pain. The reason for the separation is still not known. Could it be the age gap of 17 years and possibly wanting different things at different times in their lives? Who knows? The personal details are nobody’s business. Wishing them both happiness, back together or apart.
In a blink of an eye and the glance of a soulmates eye (and the tap of a Louis Vuitton bag on your back lol) your life can change forever, the clouds part and you see the moon and stars as you have only dreamt of them – but then you realize this is exactly the way life is to be and you thank God for that moment, because your life has changed forever. – Not everyday is easy BUT everyday is worth it – EVER THINE – EVER MINE – EVER OURS – @coltonlhaynes - #WhatMoviesaremadeof
