DeVon Franklin got candid in a recent interview about his divorce from Meagan Good after nine years of marriage.
The author and motivational speaker opened up in a recent interview on Thursday with The Breakfast Club and revealed that he cries himself to sleep, TheGrio reported.
“There are nights [where] I’m crying myself to sleep,” he told hosts DJ Envy and Charlamagne Tha God during the syndicated morning show.
As Blavity reported, Frankin, 45, and Good, 41, announced their divorce in December 2021 after spending nine years together. The former couple wed in June 2012. They wrote that no one was “at fault” in their decision, and they shared that the separation was the best thing for both of them.
“After much prayer and consideration, we have decided to go into our futures separately but forever connected,” the couple wrote in a statement provided to People. “We celebrate almost a decade of marriage together and a love that is eternal. There’s no one at fault, we believe this is the next best chapter in the evolution of our love.”
In March, the Harlem actress told Essence how the divorce had affected her since it wasn’t initially her choice to part ways with Franklin.
“It’s nothing that I would have ever chosen, and when I realized that it was happening, I was devastated,” Good told the outlet. “I was like, ‘This is me, Lord. I did everything that I could do to the best of my ability. I don’t understand why I did all these things, and then this is my end result.'”
In an interview on the Tamron Hall Show that aired Thursday, Franklin also shared details about the divorce and how he allowed himself to feel pain, according to HuffPost.
“I really tried not to worry about anybody else, but just focus on the healing process and committing to that,” Franklin said on the show. “Because no matter what, that pain is a teacher. Instead of me trying to push through it, I really had to sit in that pain.”
He continued: “Because we don’t like pain, we’re always trying to feel good. Our feelings are trying to reveal … what’s really going on in the inside.”
