After nearly two years of marriage, and three months since being released from prison, Gypsy Rose Blanchard and husband Ryan Anderson are splitting up. On Monday, according to court records obtained by TMZ, Blanchard officially filed for divorce after previously announcing that the couple were separating.

“People have been asking what is going on in my life. Unfortunately my husband and I are going through a separation,” Blanchard wrote in a private Facebook announcement in March that was obtained by People. She added that she had moved into her parents’ house and is receiving support from family and friends. “Right now I need time to let myself find … who I am,” Blanchard said in her statement. Meanwhile, Anderson told the Daily Mail earlier this month that he’s “really not doing well at all” in the wake of the couple’s split. But the 37-year-old has been keeping himself occupied by joining TikTok and, seemingly, bleaching his hair blond.

Blanchard and Anderson, a Louisiana middle-school special-education teacher, began their relationship while Blanchard was serving a seven-year-prison sentence for the widely publicized murder of her medically abusive mother, Dee Dee Blanchard, in 2015. Blanchard and Anderson wed in a private jailhouse ceremony in 2022 and were together for almost three months since Blanchard’s release from the Chillicothe Correctional Center in Missouri last December. Shortly before her release, Blanchard told People that she and Anderson were planning on having a larger wedding ceremony and reception with family and friends. “We deserve that. I deserve that. He deserves that,” she told the outlet.

In March, Blanchard, who in the last few months has amassed millions of followers while documenting her post-prison life on social media, deleted her accounts in an apparent step back from the fanfare. In a TikTok video explaining the decision, she told followers she did not want to live her life under a microscope of public scrutiny and had gotten “carried away in the hype” of her freedom. “I did a bad thing,” Blanchard said, apologizing for what she called a lack of accountability in post-prison interviews. “But I’ve also been given a second chance at life. So please give me a little grace.”
