Now, the Bobby Tarantino II rapper has addressed the split publicly for the first time. On Tuesday (March 20), he asked for “respect and privacy” in a Twitter post.
“After two years of marriage, we have come to the loving conclusion that we are much better as friends,” he wrote. “As entertainers, we have made every aspect of our lives public, yet we would appreciate your respect and privacy on this issue.”

The Grammy Award-winning artist also wanted to dispel any of the internet’s theories as to why they’re dissolving the marriage.
“We would like to shut down the speculation and potential internet clickbait as to the ‘why’ in how this happened, or the ‘who might have done what to whom,” he wrote. “It’s very simple: it just didn’t work out. There is no anger involved. No fighting, no cheating, no nothing. We love each other and will continue to support each other for the rest of our lives.”
While wrapping up the post, he encouraged fans to “be happy.”
“To all the fans: don’t be sad,” he continued. “Be happy that we could peacefully end this chapter of our relationship, beginning a new one full of love and happiness. There will be no displays of anger or hatred that tear people apart; the public will not be made to choose sides. There are not sides, there is just us. Two people who loved each other in marriage and will continue to love each other for the rest of our lives.”
The couple wed in October 2015.

Despite showing up arm in arm at the 60th Grammy Awards in January, Logic and his wife, singer/model Jessica Andrea, have reportedly called it quits. According to TMZ, the two are on their way to a divorce after less than three years of marriage.
Rumors started to swirl after fans noticed his Instagram-famous wife had unfollowed the “1-800-273-8255” rapper’s Instagram account. A source reportedly told TMZ the house they recently purchased is also set to hit the market.
The couple married in October 2015 and Andrea would occasionally join him during his performances. Last July, she provided vocals for Logic’s suicide prevention anthem during a San Francisco concert.
In an interview with Billboard last May, Logic even revealed he’d gotten the words, “Happy Wife, Happy Life” tattooed on his hand and was hoping to have three children with Andrea. TMZ suggests a reconciliation is unlikely.
Logic is gearing up for The Bobby Tarantino Vs. Everybody Tour with KYLE and NF this summer in support of his recent mixtape release, Bobby Tarantino II.
Neither Logic nor Andrea have addressed the spilt publicly.
