When you and your spouse make the decision to get divorced, it can be hard to break the news. The first people you should talk to are your children, but doing so is tricky. After you have helped your kids to understand how their family dynamic will be changing, it is time to let your family and close friends know what is going on with your relationship. Having a support system in place will help you to cope with the emotions that go along with getting divorced, and can give you the emotional boost you need to move forward with your life. Trained therapists and counselors can offer advice on how to best break the news, or it may be that you draw on past experiences to figure out how to talk about divorce with your loved ones. For celebrities though, a more formal announcement is often made.
Coming up with a statement announcing a celebrity divorce requires a lot of thought, and carefully chosen words. The typical celebrity divorce announcement goes something like this:
- A decision as to whether the statement comes from one of the parties, or is a joint statement must be made. The pair must consider their current projects, and how they will be viewed in public in light of the announcement.
- A request for privacy should be included, especially if there are minor children.
- The statement should be prepared by a publicist, and take into account the celebrity’s public image.
As with all cases, celebrities should take special care to leave out any information that may bear on the outcome of their case. Just as you would not publicize information about your children and sensitive financial information when getting divorced, neither should a celebrity. It is best to leave the specifics for the Courtroom, and allow a skilled family attorney to develop a strategy that protects your interests.
