Breaking Down Julianne Hough and Brooks Laich’s Divorce Settlement: Final Decision Over Engagement Ring, Prenup and More

Schwartz Lorraine is a custom designer who created a six-carat sparkler with an oval-cut diamond for the actress’ engagement ring. However, 38-year-old Laich and 33-year-old Hough still have to decide what to do with the order, as they made a judgement for divorce earlier this month. According to court documents obtained by Us Weekly, this decision was made on Wednesday, June 15th.

In May 2020, Hough and Laich formally declared their separation. They ignited speculation of ending their relationship in 2020 when they spent time away from each other while in lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The former contestant of Dancing With the Stars tied the knot with the sportsman in July 2017 following a four-year courtship.

Going ahead, we kindly request your understanding and empathy. We will continue to be guided by our heartfelt desire to show respect and share an abundance of love. In a joint statement, the professional athlete and Footloose star expressed, “We have taken the time to carefully and lovingly arrive at the decision to separate.”

At the time, an insider added, “While they were married, they were frustrated because they were trying to separate themselves and encountered various important issues. The couple had different viewpoints and argued a lot before deciding to end their relationship,” a source exclusively told.

The original support, including the domestic partnership or marriage rights and property, has been submitted to the court in a written agreement entered into by the parties. Laich’s and Hough’s divorce was close to being finalized after she submitted an Uncontested Declaration for Dissolution, which was confirmed earlier this year by Us. Safe Haven star filed paperwork to end her marriage in November 2020.

In August 2021, Laich made their relationship with Katrín Tanja Davíðsdóttir public on Instagram. Prior to getting affectionate with model Charlie Wilson, Hough had been romantically connected to Ben Barnes after ending their relationship with the hockey player.

Yesterday, I heard a phrase, “New beginnings,” and it made me truly think about how everything in my empty house is in need. When I welcomed some new friends into my home for Easter, I realized how much I have to do before I can move to New York City. I celebrated my finalized divorce two months ago, and on Instagram, I wrote about how different things are now compared to before. As I contemplate this next chapter of my life, I’ve been spending time on the floor where I drink my coffee, enjoy my own wine, and listen to music while eating breakfast. Recently, the Broadway star offered a glimpse into her upcoming chapter as she moves on from her marriage.
