Mia Khalifa has split up with her husband of two years, Robert Sandberg.
The influencer, sports broadcaster and former porn star got engaged to the Swedish chef in March 2019, before they legally tied the knot in the kitchen of their first home on 10 June 2019.
They were due to have their wedding ceremony on 10 June last year, but it was cancelled due to Covid-19, and now the pair have gone their separate ways.
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 out 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."
The 28-year-old previously married her high school boyfriend in 2011, before separating in 2014 and divorcing in 2016.
It was during this period that Khalifa launched her porn career, causing controversy in the Middle East after she performed sex scenes in a hijab.
She quickly became the number one rated star on Pornhub, but she has since revealed that her headline-grabbing three months in the industry were the worst of her life.
Speaking on Alexandra Cooper's Call Her Daddy podcast in March, she said: "I started disassociating and just compartmentalising and pretending like things never happened to the point where I didn't talk about porn for the first like three years after, I just went quiet and never spoke about it.
"Every time I did an interview that was the one thing they were not allowed to ask me about, I refused to acknowledge that I did it and it wasn't until therapy that I realised how detrimental that is."
Speaking about the apartment she was living in at the peak of her viral fame, she said: "It was disgusting, it was so bad, it was cockroach infested, it was the worst time of my entire life.
"I had two million followers on Instagram, everyone thought I was living it up, that was not the case."
