The decision to end the marriage comes after the Saturday Night Live writer completed an extensive drug program to kick his cocaine problem. His family and friends were reportedly ecstatic by his decision to get help. 

Back in December, 38-year-old Mulaney entered a 60-day program at a facility in Pennsylvania. He had relapsed during the pandemic after being sober since he was 23. In the past, the comic admitted to having problems with prescription pills and other illegal drugs.

In February, sources say Mulaney left in-patient rehab and started receiving out-patient care. At the time, a source told Page Six, “John has completed 60 days in rehab, and now he’s in outpatient sober care. He is doing well, although he is still not ready to return to work."

In 2019, Mulaney spoke about his past issues with drinking. He said he began drinking when he was only 13. He said, “I drank for attention. I was really outgoing, and then at 12, I wasn’t. I didn’t know how to act. And then I was drinking, and I was hilarious again.”

The comedian is set to make a comeback after getting his house in order. Earlier this month, he announced his first set of comedy shows following rehab. He will be doing a five-day residency called “John Mulaney: From Scratch” in New York. His time away has created a pent-up demand to see Mulaney. All of the scheduled shows have already sold out.
