“The Game” actress Tia Mowry, 44, announced on social media Tuesday that she and husband Cory Hardrict, 42, have decided to separate after 14 years of marriage. Together, the couple share two beautiful children, an 11-year-old son and a 4-year-old daughter.
On October 5, 2022, Tiny Mowry wrote, along with a photo of her and her husband Cory Hardrict: “I have always been honest with my fans and today is no different. I wanted to share that Cory and I have decided to go our separate ways. These decisions are never easy, and not without sadness. We will maintain a friendship as we raise our beautiful children together. I am grateful for all the happy times we have spent together and want to thank my friends, family and fans for their love and support as we begin this new chapter in our lives.”
Tina Mowry and Hardrict met when they were college students at Pepperdine University in Los Angeles, and before they married in 2008, the couple were friends for a whole year and then dated for 8 years. Related to this, the actress explained in an interview with Ebony in 2013 that she and her husband Cory Hardrict hoped to be intimate with each other. “This works for some people and it doesn’t work for some people and that’s fine,” she explained. “Know, learn and understand what baggage you can handle and what you can’t handle.”
In an interview with Global Grind, Hardrict shared that he and Tia met on the set of “Hollywood Horror” and became best friends after Tina and her sister, Tamera, saw him standing at a bus stop and gave him a ride. Cory said that he was struggling at the time.
“I was just grinding, I met my wife in those days, and she was with me when I left [the popular television show] ‘sister sister’ [which costarred her twin Tamera Mowry],” he said. “They had everything, man, and I had nothing. I had a studio apartment, sleeping in a corner with no furniture for almost two years.”
According to court documents obtained by Page Six, Mowry filed for divorce on Oct. 3 citing irreconcilable differences as grounds for divorce. Mowry is seeking joint legal and physical custody of her children, Cree Taylor Hardrict and Cairo Tiahna Hardrict.
Tia Mowry is a 44-year-old American actress who gained recognition for her starring role, along with her twin sister as Tia Landry, in the sitcom Sister, Sister. On TODAY with Hoda and Jenna, Tia Mowry’s twin sister, Tamera Mowry, spoke Tuesday about her sister’s divorce from her husband Cory Hardrict and supported her. The actress said, “I support her. So whatever she wants, the Mowrys have her back.” “I love her so much. She’s strong, but I know right now she just wants to, you know, process it all, take it all in and be a little private about it,” she continued. “And as a sister, you know, I’m going to respect that.”

The actress shared that she was struggling to conceive as she suffered from endometriosis. Mowry spoke to TODAY about her struggles, saying, “I never heard the word ‘infertility’ growing up. It just wasn’t part of the conversations with my family and friends,” Mowry explained to TODAY. “We, as women who grew up, thought: ‘Okay, I’m going to get married, I’m going to have children.’ You have your life planned out, and it doesn’t always work out that way.”
Just two days after filing for divorce, on Wednesday, Tia Mowry was spotted heading to a Los Angeles gym workout in a black tank top paired with skintight black leggings and matching black sneakers that showed off her toned arms.
On October 4, 2022, an Instagram user claimed that Cory had cheated on Tia, to which the 42-year-old actor replied “lies!”. and said that all the accusations were lies.
The news of the divorce has spread like wildfire on the Internet. Fans are found commenting on Cory Hardrict’s official Instagram account and asking him to get his wife back from him. However, tweets about her self-esteem indicate that Tia Mowry is out of a rocky relationship and is prioritizing her mental health.
