Joe Francis has officially confirmed what RadarOnline.com told you Wednesday: his one-month old marriage is over.
Francis’ publicist released this statement on Thursday: “After careful and thoughtful consideration on both our parts, Christina and I have mutually decided to end our relationship. We entered into our relationship with love and it’s with love and kindness that we leave it. We wish each other the best for the future. There was no divorce and there will be no divorce because the couple was never legally married.”
Francis and Christina McLarty had a civil ceremony wedding in November. The couple considered themselves married.
RadarOnline.com reported exclusively Tuesday that McLarty moved out and was staying with her mother.
Francis denied our report that his bride had gone away and even laughed at it at one point. But his laughter didn’t last long.
But Radar questioned McLarty late Wednesday and her mom’s house and we captured exclusive video showing she was no longer wearing her wedding or engagement rings.
Francis then was forced to admit his relationship was kaput.
After a four year courtship with the CBS reporter, 37 year-old Francis popped the question in San Tropez while on vacation. In November, the pair had a lavish wedding ceremony at his Punta Mita estate. But their marriage was short lived, and Francis was overheard discussing his separation with close friends at Bruce and Kris Jenner‘s annual Christmas eve party.
“He was talking about the details of the separation openly while at the Kardashian holiday party,” our source explained.
“Christina moved out a bit after Thanksgiving.”
