John Mulaney and his ex-wife Anna Marie Tendler have officially divorced. According to court papers obtained by TMZ, the comedian ended his marriage for good on January 6, 2022, almost five months after he started the process of getting a divorce in the first place. This statement comes only a few short days after the star of Saturday Night Live and his current girlfriend, Olivia Munn, privately gave birth to their son, Malcolm Hiep Mulaney. In May of 2021, after having been married for seven years, Tendler and Mulaney finalized their decision to divorce and live apart. At first, the latter party refused to comment on the separation.
A statement that Mulaney’s publicist sent indicates that the comedian intends to devote his undivided focus to his career and recovery. John is committed to getting well and going back to work, so he will have no more remarks at this time. There were reports that the Big Mouth actor was getting divorced again since he was connected to Munn very quickly after he divorced his wife. Two months after the couple announced, Mulaney confirmed the news during an appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers.
Relationship breakdown between John Mulaney and Anna Marie Tendler
John Mulaney and Anna Marie Tendler started going out together for the first time in 2010, and they got engaged in 2013. These two tied the knot at the Onteora Mountain House in Boiceville, New York, on July 5th, 2014. The ceremony took place in 2014. Soon after they were married, the newlyweds became overwhelmed with questions about beginning a family, but Mulaney made it quite clear that he was not yet prepared to proceed with that stage of his life. They continued to stay together over the next seven years, but beginning in 2021, things began to get more challenging. As of May 2021, Mulaney and Tendler declared their intention to dissolve their relationship. This occurred about after the former had finished their term in recovery due to a drug abuse relapse. The former went back to using drugs again.
Factors that led to John Mulaney’s separation
There is a possibility that the comedian’s long-term struggle with alcoholism and drug addiction was a factor in his divorce. After spending many months in rehabilitation in 2021, he cut ties with Tendler and started seeing Olivia Munn. His wife, Anna Marie Tendler, informed him that they were no longer together while he was receiving treatment at the hospital. John Mulaney was unaware of this development. She said John’s divorce tears her heart. As he takes the first steps toward getting well, I wish him the utmost best as he travels toward recovery. On July 23, 2021, the couple who had been married before submitted divorce paperwork, citing irreconcilable differences as the reason. On the other hand, they did not elaborate on those issues. On January 6, 2022, they decided to go public with the dissolution of their marriage.
