“We had decided to not make our separation public until we were able to successfully manage the process, which we now have.”

The confirmation has been made public due to the fact that Gumbi will soon announce a new comedy tour based on his experience during this process. “We felt it was time to let everyone know before any assumptions were made,” said the statement.

It was also made clear that the former couple will remain friends and continue to work together on upcoming projects.
