John Mulaney and wife Anna Marie Tendler to divorce after comic’s stint in rehab following drug and alcohol relapse

IT'S OVER

JOHN Mulaney and his wife, Anna Marie Tendler, have divorced after six years.

This comes after the famous stand-up comedian spent 60 days in rehab for alcohol and drug abuse.

According to Page Six, John asked for a divorce from Anna three months ago.

A spokesman for the former Saturday Night Live writer confirmed the split and added: “John will not have any further comment as he continues to focus on his recovery and getting back to work.”

Anna, who is an artist, also commented via her own spokesperson, as she said: “I am heartbroken that John has decided to end our marriage. I wish him support and success as he continues his recovery.

Back in December, the 38-year-old entered a rehab facility in Pennsylvania for 60 days for treatment for cocaine and alcohol addiction.

At the time, an insider explained: “John’s friends and family are happy that he’s finally getting some help and focusing on his health.

“His fans know he’s struggled in the past with sobriety, he has talked about it openly. Unfortunately he has struggled again during the pandemic.

“He’s on board with his recovery, he’s not fighting against rehab.”

Following two months at rehab, another source told Page Six: "John has completed 60 days in rehab, and now he’s in outpatient sober care.

"He is doing well, although he is still not ready to return to work."
