Now it's official: The professional soccer player Mats Hummels and the influencer Cathy Hummels are going their separate ways.
Munich – After the divorce, they met for coffee: the influencer Cathy Hummels and the footballer Mats Hummels are now officially divorced.
This was announced by Cathy Hummels (34) on Instagram on Monday.
"We look back and remember our time together as a couple," the influencer said in the social media post.
"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 - according to this, the long-time national soccer player Mats Hummels (34) showed up ten minutes late at the divorce date.
"There are appointments where you shouldn't be late," Cathy Hummels posted online at noon, obviously referring to it.
She also wrote on Instagram: "We've had a lot of ups and downs, but also recognize that our son and both of us are better off when we treat each other with respect.
Thank you for you as people @aussenrist15.” This is her ex-husband's Instagram name.
She concluded with the words: "Now a new phase of my life is beginning and I'm going to say goodbye to Germany for 2 months.
PS: In a war there are never winners, only losers.”
Cathy didn't want to go back to Dortmund
At the end of October, Cathy Hummels openly confirmed the separation – after more than 13 years together.
In the documentary "Cathy Hummels – Everything at the beginning" on RTLzwei she said: "We tried to avoid the separation, but in the end it was Mats who said: I can't go on anymore and I don't want to continue like this ."
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 two severe depressions during her first time in 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," Hummels said 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 thirteen years - or thirteen and a half - inseparable." dpa
