According to UsMagazine.comthe caption of the photo is, “Note to self. Sometimes your heart needs more time to accept what your mind already knows.” A source said, “It didn’t make sense to stay together,” adding that David is the one who pushed for the divorce because he felt that the union “wasn’t a marriage.” Despite the former celebrity couple‘s split, Yolanda still looks back on the relationship positively. “We had a beautiful love story that I will treasure forever,” she said.

Cupid’s Advice:

When marriage ends, there’s no getting around the pain. That being said, there are certainly different ways to cope with it. Cupid has some relationship advice:

1. Know you’re not alone: The worst thing you can do is hole up at home with a tub of ice cream with no one you love around you. Okay, maybe it’s okay for the first day or two, but then consider inviting some friends or family over to hang out! They know you well, and just their presence will remind you there are other people out there who care. Plus, you’re not the only only who has gone through a divorce. If they can get through it, so can you.
