Cory Hardrict Shares His Emotional Struggles Following Divorce

Cory got candid about his emotions after his divorce at the American Black Film Festival earlier this month. According to Essence, Hardrict spoke on a panel when the topic arose. A clip shared by Hollywood Melanin on Instagram shows the actor dressed in a burnt orange suit on stage.

“It’s tough when it feels like you’re going through something alone and no one understands, and no one’s there for you,” Cory Hardrict said. “It was a year and a half crying myself to sleep every night.”

Additionally, Cory shared that his loved ones can testify that his “kids and family were everything” to him. Therefore, after more than a decade of marriage and nearly two as a couple, Hardrict implied the post-split period was painful for him. However, it seemingly showed him that he’s “stronger than [he] thought [he] was.” 

“By the grace of God, I’m here, and I’m still going,” the actor added.

Here’s What Tia Mowry Previously Shared About Their Split

Note that Cory Hardrict previously revealed that cheating was not a factor. And in June 2023, Tia Mowry gave additional context about the reason she filed for a divorce.

She told Hello Beautiful that she’d been considering the split for about five years. Despite loving the role of a wife, Mowry shared that tradition didn’t allow for the “constant” nature of change.

“I love being a wife. But I am understanding that tradition could be a blessing and a curse. What I mean by that is tradition warrants for no change, whereas change is constant,” Mowry shared.

After some family deaths, she attended therapy and started questioning her peace and happiness. Ultimately, she decided that choosing herself was best for her, Cree and Cairo.

“A part of my decision was also for them. For them seeing their mother walk in truth. I feel like it’s a great lesson for them because it was not an easy decision. It was one of the hardest decisions that I had ever had to make in my entire life.”

Most recently, former ‘Bachelorette’ star Rechel Lindsey opened up about the advice Tia shared with her amid her own divorce.
