Elliot Page and Emma Portner are getting divorced!
New York, New York- Elliot Page and Emma Portner issued a statement on Wednesday confirming that they would be getting a divorce.
This life changing announcement comes just two months after Juno actor Elliot Page came out as transgender.
His wife Emma Portner, a dancer and choreographer who has been featured in Justin Bieber's Purpose: The Movement music video and tour, took to Instagram to share her support at the time.
"I am so proud of @elliotpage. Trans, queer and non-binary people are a gift to this world. I also ask for patience & privacy but that you join me in the fervent support of trans life every single day. Elliot’s existence is a gift in and of itself. Shine on sweet E. Love you so much," Emma wrote back then.
The couple did not share their news on social media, but confirmed to CNN that they are getting divorced.
"After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce following our separation last summer. We have the utmost respect for each other and remain close friends."
The couple started dating in 2017 and announced their marriage a year later.
