Chloe Madeley, daughter of renowned TV presenters Richard Madeley and Judy Finnigan, has finally broken her silence on her separation from husband James Haskell. The couple, who confirmed their split last month, released a joint statement affirming that their separation was amicable and would remain so for the sake of their 15-month-old daughter, Bodhi.
Speaking to her social media followers, Madeley reflected on the end of their five-year marriage after a fan inquired about the possibility of a reconciliation. Madeley responded, "James and I are not together anymore but we are determined to be the absolute best parents we can be to our amazing little girl."
The conversation follows recent sightings of Haskell partying in Ibiza with a woman who bears a striking resemblance to Madeley. Identified as Chloe McLennan, also known as DJ Loeca, she is reported to have shared some advice on the industry with Haskell. A source revealed that Haskell's transition to a new career had put strain on the relationship due to his frequent absences from home.
The couple confirmed their separation through a joint statement in October, shortly after being seen without their wedding rings. They revealed their decision to separate had been reached in September but had not intended to share the news publicly during the airing of their new reality TV show, Chloe Madeley: A Family Affair, which has since become bittersweet in light of their split.
In an episode of the show, tension arose between Madeley and Haskell when he traveled to Ibiza for a DJ gig, where he was photographed partying with bikini-clad dancers. Frustrated and upset, Madeley expressed her anger towards Haskell's behavior on social media. The recent Q&A session on social media offered fans a glimpse into how the couple is navigating their separation and focusing on co-parenting their daughter.
