Chloe Madeley and James Haskell's marital troubles were recently exposed in scenes from their reality show, Chloe Madeley: A Family Affair on ITVX. The couple, who had been married for five years, parted ways in September shortly after filming wrapped on their show.
Tensions escalated during the final episode when Haskell accused his wife of treating him poorly. The dispute arose as they prepared to record a podcast together, with Chloe expressing frustration over James' lack of preparation. She admitted to staying up late to write treatments for the show while her husband did nothing.
Chloe shushed James multiple times during a work call, leading him to complain about being treated like a dog. In an interview, Chloe revealed that the root of their relationship difficulties was their dominant personalities, causing constant clashes and conflicts.
During the podcast recording, the couple discussed their previous attendance at couples therapy in an attempt to salvage their marriage. Chloe emphasized the importance of addressing the reality of struggling relationships, noting that it was essential for people to understand what is considered normal or abnormal within a partnership.
Despite their disagreements, Chloe and James put their differences aside for a date night, enjoying a game of crazy golf and drinks. However, their conversation revealed Chloe's insecurities about her appearance compared to other women.
The final episode of their reality show documented their daughter Bodhi's first birthday party, which took place a month before their separation. The couple officially announced their split through a joint statement on Instagram, expressing their focus on co-parenting and their daughter's well-being.
Friends of the couple described the situation as strange, as Chloe had recently discussed her life and marriage in interviews without mentioning their separation. James is currently still residing in the family home in London.
The airing of Chloe Madeley: A Family Affair shed light on the challenges faced by Chloe Madeley and James Haskell in their marriage, ultimately leading to their decision to go their separate ways.
