The Arrow Star Katie Cassidy filed for divorce from her husband Matthew Rodgers.
The 33-year-old star filed the needed paperwork last Wednesday, January 8, in Los Angeles though the actress listed the date of separation as “TBD.” The said reason for the split was cited as irreconcilable differences. Furthermore, dissolution without minor children was also requested by Cassidy.
December 2, 2017, was the wedding date Cassidy listed on the divorce papers. However, a lot of people assumed that the couple tied the knot in December 2018 for the first time.
Earlier this week, the Monte Carlo star was spotted with positive spirits as she attended the Golden Globes afterparty on January 5, Sunday. The actress was enjoying her night with her friends out as she walked around the party with a drink in her hand as she mingled with other celebrities.
Last November 2019, Cassidy’s last post on Instagram with her husband Matthew Rodgers was during Thanksgiving and was captioned how grateful she is to have him by her side. She thanked her husband and even challenged the Instagram world to tag someone they are thankful for.
The actress poured her heart out over Rodgers in December 2018 after she was officially Mrs. Rodgers. They exchanged vows in Sunset Key, Florida. The Gossip Girl alum posted a photo of her locking lips with Rodgers with her white gown and his tuxedo. She captioned the photo by saying how she can’t stop falling for him and sweetly said, ‘I love you, my husband.’
Way back June 2017, Cassidy announced their engagement on Instagram by posting a photo and saying how she can’t wait to spend forever with Rodgers. She even thanked her love for giving her a magical night to remember and declares herself as the luckiest girl in the world.
In April 2018, Cassidy opened up about how nervous she is for their big day. She admitted how scared and excited she was at the same time. She expressed how amazing it is when you finally found your person and declared Matthew Rodgers as her own.- Advertisement -
Cassidy also revealed that it was Rodgers’ brother who brought them together. She admitted they completely hit it off, began as friends, and ended up being each other’s best friend and lover.
Sadly, Katie and Matthew are not the only celebrity couple that filed for divorce recently. Previously Zooey Deschanel divorced Jacob Pechenik and Liam Hemsworth filed for divorce with Miley Cyrus. Hopefully this trend will stop soon.
