Influencer Cathy Hummels and footballer Mats Hummels are officially divorced.
This was announced by Cathy Hummels, 34, on Instagram on Monday.
"We look back and remember our time together as a couple," Hummels wrote.
“Now we're divorced but optimistic about a future together as parents and friends.
After that we had a coffee together.«
The "Bild" newspaper had previously reported.
Mats Hummels, 34, appeared ten minutes late at the divorce hearing.
"There are appointments where you shouldn't be late," Cathy Hummels posted online at noon, obviously alluding to it.
Cathy Hummels also wrote on Instagram: »We had a lot of ups and downs, but we are also aware that our son and both of us are better off when we treat each other with respect.
Thank you for you as a person @aussenrist15.« This is the Instagram name of her ex-husband.
She concluded with the words: »Now a new chapter in my life is beginning and I'm going to say goodbye to Germany for two months.
PS: In a war there are never winners, only losers.«
At the end of October, Cathy Hummels openly confirmed the separation – after more than 13 years together.
In a documentary she said: "We tried to avoid the breakup, but in the end it was Mats who said: 'I can't do it anymore and I don't want to go on like this anymore.'"
The sticking point was that she stayed in Munich when her husband switched from Bayern Munich back to Borussia Dortmund in 2019.
"I didn't want to go back," she said, explaining that she had severe depression when she first came to Dortmund.
But her husband wanted her around more.
"I had a choice: either I lose him or I lose myself and I had to decide for myself," said Cathy Hummels on the show, tearfully speaking of "sadness about Mats and that we just couldn't do it".
She tries to see headlines about it with humor.
"But it still hurts," she said.
“We were inseparable for thirteen years—or thirteen and a half.”
