“After 6 years of love and commitment to each other my wife and I have decided to end our journey together…We will hold onto the love and respect we have for each other and I wish her the best always.” Asghari wrote
The musician however did not address the divorce to her 42 million IG followers, instead writing that she was
“buying a horse soon”.
