Meagan was asked, along with her Harlem co-stars, what they felt about “letting go of toxic relationships,” and while she did say that it was “specific to my circumstance right now,” she also emphasized the importance of “knowing your worth.”
She elaborated, “I’ve always gone into relationships knowing that at some point, they’ll get to the place that they’re headed to, and then they’d be done.” “From the beginning, I just thought, “Alright, on to the next chapter.
We’ll see what happens next,’ and being good with that, as well as valuing what you give to someone and what they give to you, and knowing that you’ve shared an experience with somebody that you will never get back, no matter how the relationship ends.”
Some Reasons Behind Their Divorce
On December 20th, DeVon submitted divorce papers, claiming insurmountable disagreements. Court documents acquired by E! News indicate that the pair divorced on August 21, 2021, after nine years of marriage.
Following the filing, the couple released a joint statement to E! News in which they said, “After much prayer and deliberation, we have decided to go into our futures separately but forever together.”
“We’ve been married for nearly ten years, and our love for one other just grows stronger with the passing of time. Neither of us is at fault; in fact, we see this as the next, most wonderful step in the development of our love.”
DeVon posted on Instagram on New Year’s Day that he will be taking a social media break while going through his divorce “As we begin the year 2022, I am at complete peace with my pain. And there I am the most myself.”
