Divorcing: Jamelia and Darren Byfield have split after 18 months of marriage

The couple have had a tempestuous relationship.

Walsall player Darren was accused of cheating on Jamelia during their engagement, and they split. They then reunited for the sake of their children.

The couple wed in a lavish ceremony in East Sussex in June last year.

They released a statement saying that no-one else was involved in their decision to end their marriage.

‘It is with regret that Jamelia and Darren Byfield today confirm they are splitting up and getting a divorce,’ it said.

‘No one else is involved. Their priority is naturally their two children.’

A friend told the Sun: ‘Their relationship has been through lots of ups and downs. Jamelia took him back after he was accused of straying, but the last year has been tough.

‘Jamelia decided to leave last week and there is no going back this time.’
