Josiah filed his response to the divorce in May 2020, but the case had no movement for months. Last month, the court warned the couple if they didn’t file the proper paperwork.

The judge said, “Your case is not complete. Your case is not complete until the judgment has been filed and entered. If you fail to take the appropriate steps in your case, the Court may dismiss your case for delay in prosecution.”

She said, “We were best friends before we started even dating, so we had this really great foundation. I think one of the challenging things about any lasting relationship is that you have to be so vulnerable.”

Jurnee filed the divorce papers days after her brother Jussie reappeared on social media. He had been on a hiatus ever since being arrested in 2019 for allegedly faking a hate crime.

“One of the most painful things my family’s ever experienced. To love someone as much as we love my brother, and to watch someone who you love that much go through something like this, that is so public, has been devastating,” she said.
