The model and businesswoman, 32, blamed changes in Alex’s behaviour for the breakdown of their short-lived relationship and insisted she had done everything in her power to make the union work.
“Alex and I have had a number of difficulties over the past few months,” the statement begins. “I accept that these were in part caused by my marrying too quickly – we all make mistakes and this was one.
“However, Alex changed from the man I fell in love with and some of his behaviour became difficult for me to understand.”
She then went on to claim that Alex’s increasing appetite for fame was core to the couple’s problems.
“Our difficulties were not helped by Alex becoming more fascinated by life in the media eye,” she said. “Of course I cannot be critical of someone wanting to do this and originally I tried to help him with his career.”
“Alex is fully aware that I have sought to remove my children from the public eye… I feel incredibly let down that he did this,” she says, before continuing, “it is true that I have asked Alex to leave the family home and that he will not. I would leave myself but the house is equipped for Harvey’s needs.”
She ended her statement insisting she and Alex had done all they could to salvage their marriage but had decided separating was the best thing to do, and that protecting her children is her main priority.
The couple married in Las Vegas last February after a whirlwind six-month romance, but sadly the ill-fated union did not last even a year.
