Essence Atkins recently shared that she and her husband, Jaime Mendez, are divorcing. The actress revealed the news while co-hosting on Hollywood Today Live, explaining that while the two still love each other, they've decided to part ways. Essence also joked that she's not sure if she's ready to jump into the dating pool.
September 2009, Atkins married Puerto Rican collegiate football free safety Jaime Mendez. They met Valentine's Day 2008 through the online dating serviceMatch.com. Essence gave birth to their son in December.
We love when Hollywood couples can part ways without tearing each other apart in the media. We wish both Essence and Jaime the best!
