They Divorced After Less Than Two Years Of Marriage
On August 10th, 2020, Gigi Dolin announced that her and Darby Allin were getting a divorce.
While the AEW star was quiet about the separation, Dolin released a statement to Twitter, announcing their recent divorce.
She said: “There’s been a lot of ups and downs, but we have come to the conclusion that we are just not compatible together as people. We are on great terms, and wish only the best for each other.”
“There are no hard feelings, as we both understand this is what is best. I know a lot of you have supported us for a long time as a duo, and we appreciate it so much, but this decision is what’s best for both of us and our wellbeing.”
“I hope to see him continue his rise in the entertainment industry and take the world by storm as he already is. As for me, it’s time to begin a new chapter.”
Giga Dolin revealed the reasons she divorced Darby Allin during an episode of Vickie Guerrero’s Excuse Me! podcast.
She did not blame either party, and simply admitted they were married too young, and were not ready for that life together.
“With us, we realize we got married really young and really fast. He proposed after dating me for four months.“
“That works for some people but for us, we realized we were not mature enough to handle that label of marriage. Sometimes just the label of marriage can add so much pressure and stress to a relationship.“
“It’s hard to get people who haven’t been married to understand that. Let’s remove this label and then let’s see how things go.”
Darby Allin remains with AEW after their divorce, while Gigi Dolin is embarking on a singles run in NXT for the first time.
