In her new memoir This Will Only Hurt a Little, the 39-year-old actress revealed that she asked her 47-year-old producer-husband for a divorce back in December 2016.
“A month [after the 2016 presidential election], I told Marc I wanted a divorce. I was done. I couldn’t do it anymore,” Busy writes before adding that things between the couple “hadn’t been great” for “a while.”
“He didn’t let me talk when we were out with friends. Or worse, when it was just us, he didn’t speak to me at all,” Busy continues. “I’d start to do a test when we were alone in the car together, where I wouldn’t say anything until he did, just to see how long it would take him to talk to me. Some days we rode the whole way in silence.”
Busy goes on to reveal that she even started getting feelings for another man – and told Marc that she was “leaving him.”
“But he didn’t want to get divorced. He wanted a chance to change,” Busy writes while sharing that they both started going to therapy – together and separate. “He said I owed our family that.”
Busy and Marc married back in 2007 and are parents to daughters Birdie, 10, and Cricket, 5.
