Mia Khalifa has had a rough ride with her wedding to Robert Sadberg. After the two got engaged in March 2019, they had to put off what was sure to be a big celebration due to Coronavirus in 2020. Now it looks like they're going their separate ways - but why?
The influencer, sports broadcaster and former porn star announced that she and the Swedish chef were parting ways on Wednesday (21st July), having only celebrated their first wedding anniversary on 11th June. In an Instagram post that day, Sandberg wrote:
"Happy anniversary baby! There is no one like you. I love you more and more every single day. Let's continue eat all the food around the world until we get really fat and old. You make my life complete my queen."
Khalifa and Sandberg got engaged in March 2019 and we're not sure exactly when they met, but the first photo of the two together was posted on his Instagram in August 2018. They were due to have their wedding in June 2020, but decided to put it off due to coronavirus restrictions. They got married in private at their home that week instead.
Why has Mia Khalifa broken up with her husband?
Announcing the break-up on social media, the Lebanese-born star said they went through almost a year of therapy together but couldn't make the marriage work.
She said: "We can confidently say we gave it our all in making our marriage work but after almost a year of therapy and efforts we are walking away knowing we have a friend in each other, and that we truly tried.
"We will always love and respect each other because we know that not one isolated incident caused our split, but rather, a culmination of unresolvable, fundamental differences that no one can blame the other for.
"We are closing this chapter with no regrets and both starting our own, separately, but connected through incredible family, friends and our love for our dogs.
"This has been long overdue, but we are glad we took our time and gave it our all, and can walk away saying we tried our absolute hardest."
Sandberg posted the same to his Instagram. There are no comments on either post, so we can only imagine that Khalifa and Sandberg have switched commenting off during this emotional time.
Khalifa has been married before; she was married to her high school boyfriend between 2011-2016, which was the same time that she launched her porn career.
She quickly became the number one rated star on Pornhub, but it was a short-lived stint in the adult industry, leaving it behind after just three months. Khalifa has since revealed that those months were the worst of her life.
