Shayne Lamas and Nik Richie pulled the plug on their relationship. She broke the news on Instagram in May, writing, "Friends & Family, after 11 years together Nik and I have come to a loving conclusion to get a divorce, we have nothing but love and respect for one another and will cherish the years shared, memories made, and the children we are so proud of."

She continued, "This is just the situation of two people growing apart. We ask everyone to respect our privacy as we navigate our new normal within our family." Nik commented, "Cute pic" along with a red heart emoji, so it appears the former couple really is parting on good terms.

Shayne seemed to only have good things to say about her ex-husband, telling Page Six on May 5, "But I can honestly say after 11 years of marriage and two beautiful and thriving children, it was a successful decade." She added, "Nik and I are best friends and will continue to raise our children as a team but our marriage has been empty for years. Nik and I have not been intimate in almost a year and it doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that will take a toll on any marriage no matter how much respect you have for each other."
