Louise Redknapp tells friends her marriage is over - report
Jamie Redknapp is reportedly determined not to give up on his marriage to Louise.
Louise Redknapp has reportedly told friends her 19-year marriage to footballer husband Jamie is over.
The pair's relationship has been rumoured to have been in trouble for the past few months, and on Wednesday (12Jul17), The Sun reported that Louise has begun to make the sad news official with her nearest and dearest.
"Louise told one of her closest friends she and Jamie had split," a source told the newspaper. "Louise was quite open about the fact the relationship was over. She mentioned how much time they had spent apart and that when she and Jamie had tried to spend time together, it hadn’t been good."
The couple are parents to sons Charlie, 12, and Beau, eight. And it's their determination to protect their boys that has apparently prevented Louise and Jamie from making an announcement about the end of their marriage.
"It’s a very difficult situation because of their two children who they are both determined to protect," the insider added. "That’s why they’re not prepared to officially end the marriage or comment publicly.
"They hope time apart might fix things, even though that doesn’t look likely."
Former Eternal singer Louise is now allegedly living 15 minutes away from the marital mansion she shared with Jamie and their sons. And despite the sad news, Jamie is apparently determined not to give up on his relationship with Louise.
"Jamie hasn’t given up hope," the source added. "He is fighting for his marriage and to keep his family together. It’s all very sad."
Meanwhile, a source close to Strictly Come Dancing star Louise said: "They are giving each other space as they work through things."
WENN has contacted a representative for the couple for comment.
