Cape Town – Afrikaans singer, Karlien van Jaarsveld, on Monday night announced that she would be splitting from her husband, Derick Hougaard.

The Strictly Coming Dancing season 8 winner announced the news in a short post on her Facebook page.

“For a long time now I’ve been thinking about how, where and when I would make this announcement. It would come out anyway, so I’ve decided to share the news myself. I am divorcing my husband. This is a difficult time for us and I hope that everyone that reads this respects that. Thank you for your love and support,” Karlien wrote.

Karlien and Derick, former Springbok flyhalf, were married for 2 years and have 2 children, twins named Daniël and Eliah, together.

Derick recently made headlines with a health scare after complaining of severe headaches and problems with short-term memory loss. Brain scans later revealed that the ex-rugby player’s condition was nothing serious and he would recover 100%, Sport24 reported. 

Karlien suffered an emotional miscarriage earlier this year.
