In an interview with Juju Chang for “Good Morning America,” Turner announced the decision, saying, “Theresa and I have had a number of heart-to-heart conversations, and we’ve looked closely at our situation, our living situation, so forth, and we’ve kind of come to the conclusion mutually that it’s probably time for us to dissolve our marriage.”

What is the reason for their divorce?

"The thing that strikes me the most in our conversations is how dedicated both of us are to our families... So we look at these situations, and I think we just feel like it’s best for the happiness of each of us to live apart,” said Turner.

Despite this, they reaffirmed their love for each other, with Turner expressing, "I still love this person… There’s no doubt in my mind, I still am in love with her. I root for her every day." Nist reciprocated, affirming, “Yeah, I still love him.”
