Most previous accounts led outsiders to assume Fox News Channel host Sean Hannity and his wife remained happily married more than 20 years after their wedding.
This week, however, Page Six reported that Hannity and Jill Rhodes divorced last year following several years of separation.
The top-rated host has largely shielded his private life from his very public profession and has not hinted that the couple had been experiencing any marital problems.
“Committed to working together”
Even in the digital age, which offers unparalleled access to court documents and other records, Hannity and Rhodes managed to keep the separation and last year’s divorce filing under wraps — until the latest updates.
In response to the reports, the former couple provided a joint statement.
“Sean and Jill are committed to working together for the best interests of their children,” the statement read. “Amical agreements were entered into over four years ago between Sean and Jill.”
They were married in 1993 and the relationship resulted in two children, Patrick and Merri Kelly.
“Neither will have any further comments”
Some speculation that their marriage was on the rocks dates back to 2013 when Hannity was included among a number of Fox News Channel personalities accused of sexual harassment.
“They maintain a close relationship as parents to their children,” the statement continued. “Neither will have any further comments and ask for the sake of their children that their privacy be respected.”
Interviews with friends and neighbors further indicated that the two remain close even after their marriage dissolved. A major factor in the split appears to be the fact that Hannity is a “workaholic,” Page Six reported.
Although the family reportedly still gathers for dinners and children’s events, rumors began to swirl when Rhodes was noticeably absent from Hannity’s side at recent events even as a coronavirus lockdown was in effect. The report confirming their divorce further indicated that neither Hannity nor Rhodes has publicly dated anyone else since they separated.
News of the divorce might come as a shock to some of Hannity’s loyal viewers. The revelation just goes to prove, however, that no one ever truly knows the struggles public figures face in their private lives.
