The singer of Backstreet Boys AJ McLean took to social media to announce an important update in his personal life. He and his wife Rochelle DeAnna, a makeup artist and hairstylist, are officially ending their marriage after being married for 12 years. 

AJ, 45 and Rochelle, 42, had been separated for over a year, and had announced in March 2023 that they will be separating to "work on ourselves."

The duo announced their divorce on Instagram on Monday. "As you all know, we have been separated for over a year now. While we have hoped for reconciliation, we have decided to officially end our marriage. It is with deep love and respect that we have made this decision," they said in a joint statement.

McLean and DeAnna got married in 2011 and share two daughters. "Our focus now is moving forward in the healthiest possible way with friendship and co-parenting our girls at the forefront of this next chapter. We appreciate your kindness, respect and privacy at this time," the statement continued.

AJ met Rochelle while she was working as a waitress back in 2008. They tied the knot in a Gothic-themed wedding held at the Beverly Hills Hotel in 2011.
