The Originals star Claire Holt and her soon-to-be ex-husband Matthew Kaplan would have celebrated their one year wedding anniversary on April 28th but instead, they filed for divorce.
This news comes as a complete shock to fans who followed their love story over the years. These two have been together for awhile. Back in July 2015, Claire confirmed that she was engaged to Matthew and the world freaked out over it, naturally. She documented all of the events leading up to the wedding including a bridal shower with several celebrity attendees including Mandy Moore.
It seemed like their love was picture perfect.
Matthew filed for divorce on April 27th citing irreconcilable differences. Claire's attorney cited the same reasoning for the split. As of now, neither Claire or Matthew have made a personal statement about the separation. We can only imagine how hard it is for them and their loved ones.
Because these two were together for so long before their short-lived marriage, it raises questions about what actually went down behind closed doors. Of course, when celebs go through tough situations like this, usually major details are kept under wraps. So, we have a feeling that the world probably won't get all the details.
We decided to do a little bit of investigating. The editors at J-14 took a look at Claire's Instagram profile and noticed that she hasn't posted a photo with Matthew in weeks. Could this be a sign? Another possibility is that she could have deleted all recent photos as soon as he filed for divorce. Regardless, there's not much trace of their life as a couple on social media and it's super upsetting.
Whether or not fans get the details and answers they are looking for over the broken marriage, we hope nothing but the best for Claire and Matthew in the future. Everyone deserves love!
