“Now that my divorce will be final, I feel great relief as well as sadness,” Caffrey told Page Six. “I bear [Danielle] no ill will, and I wish her the best in everything she does.”
Danielle Staub and Marty Caffrey’s marriage is over, three months after their wedding.
The 56-year-old Real Housewives of New Jersey star’s third husband filed for divorce on August 14 at a New Jersey court, E! News has confirmed. Two days earlier, there was an incident at their home and the two filed temporary restraining orders against each other. They dropped them a week after the divorce filing, E! News has learned.
In July, Staub’s rep had told E! News, “Danielle is having some difficulties with her marriage right now and is hoping everything will work out.”
Staub has not commented on the divorce and has made no mention of a split from Caffrey on social media, where she has remained active.
The reality star, who has been engaged 20 times, and Caffrey got engaged in mid-2017 after dating for more than a year.
Staub and Caffrey wed in the Bahamas this past May.
They tied the knot in front of family and friends, including Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Melissa Gorga and Margaret Josephs, who served as bridesmaids, and Teresa Giudice, who shared maid of honor duties with Staub’s two daughters.
