Ricky Martin and Jwan Yosef

Another one bites the dust!

After six long years of marriage, Puerto Rican pop icon Ricky Martin, 51, and Jwan Yosef, 38, have officially called it quits.

Martin and Yosef made the announcement through each other’s social media in a joint statement on Thursday, July 6.

The two confirmed that the split was amicable and said that they are united in turning over a new leaf.

“For some time, we have considered transforming our relationship, and it is after careful consideration that we have decided to end our marriage with love, respect, and dignity for our children– preserving and honoring what we have experienced as a couple all of these wonderful years.”

The Latin pop star and the Syrian-Swedish artist said that they are now looking forward to continuing to have a “healthy family dynamic and a relationship centered on our genuine friendship as we continue the joint upbringing of our children.”

The two artists then thanked everyone for all the love and support they received throughout their marriage.

Martin and Yosef met and connected through Instagram and officially debuted as a couple at the amFAR Inspiration Gala in Brazil in April 2016.

A few months later, the “King of Latin Pop” announced on the Ellen DeGeneres Show in November 2016 that they were finally engaged.

A little over a year later, Martin revealed that they had secretly wed and only announced the marriage on the red carpet at the premiere of The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story in January 2018.

Martin and Yosef share two children: daughter Lucia, 4, and son Renn, 3. The Latin Pop God also has 14-year-old twin sons, Matteo and Valentino, whom he fathered through surrogacy.
