In 2017, Cheryl Burke and Matthew Lawrence resumed their relationship after a ten-year hiatus. However, five years later in January 2022, they ended their relationship permanently. According to documents obtained, the former couple finalized their divorce in September.
Both of them agreed to honour the prenuptial agreement that was signed before they got married, they also agreed to waive any spousal support and to pay their own legal fees.
What happened after they resumed their relationship in 2017?
In May 2018, Lawrence proposed, and soon after, the couple moved in together. The couple exchanged vows in May 2019 at the Fairmont Grand Del Mar in San Diego, after dating for a year. The actor gave Burke a dog named Ysabella in honour of their first wedding anniversary in May 2020.
Four months later, Burke claimed that soon after she and Lawrence got engaged, she made the decision to give up drinking. After the death of her alcoholic father in September 2020, she marked two years of recovery.
“ He is just my rock, I don’t know where I would be without him,” Burke said on Good Morning America in reference to Lawrence’s support on her sobriety journey. “ When you make a decision, a big decision, a life-altering decision, your friends will change and, you know, some people will support it. Some people won’t and at the end of the day, you have to be okay with this.”
Cheryl addressed the split via Instagram in February 2022. “I know I have always said I’m an open book with you guys, I do strive to be, and in writing this I’ve realized there really isn’t an easy way to announce that my marriage is ending, I hope you can understand that I will not be commenting any further at this time and am asking for understanding and privacy. Thank you all for all the kind words and support you’ve given me.”
