From the get-go, the duo managed to gravitate towards one another. While their vibrant personalities complemented each other, it wasn’t long before they faced tumbles in their marriage.
As their relationship progressed, the duo started realizing the differences in their opinions and personalities. After failing to discuss the dynamics of their relationship, Jamie had even walked out of the house to get away from his newlywed. He also felt that Beth’s reaction to situations was explosive. In a particularly heated situation, the Account Executive even pushed a table and declared that Jamie should just leave her.

In April, Jamie took to his Instagram account to announce his separation from Beth. In a post, he captioned his predicament, “It’s not easy, but it’s necessary. Taking this step may be difficult, but I know it’s necessary for me to become the best version of myself…I can’t say what the future holds for Beth and I, but I know I will be a stronger version of myself regardless.”
Jamie also added hashtags of mental health and personal development that led many to speculate that the couple hadn’t been on good terms for a while. Later, the financial tech consultant confirmed in a since-deleted Instagram story that he walked out on the marriage after a lot of fighting.

She also asked fans to respect her time alone because her emotions have been everywhere. The TV personality also confessed that she’s been crying to herself at night and is incapable of revealing anything to her fans at the moment.
