TJ Holmes’ estranged wife Marilee Fiebig has broken her silence on their divorce amid his alleged affair with Amy Robach.
Holmes, 45, and Robach, 49, who are co-hosts GMA3: What you need to knoware on break from the Good morning America spin off. In November, the British newspaper the Daily Mail released images of the couple seemingly cozied up in a bar, in a vehicle and on vacation.
In December, Holmes filed for divorce from Fiebig after nearly 13 years of marriage. The couple married on March 1, 2010 and had daughter Sabine three years later. The broadcaster is also father to Brianna and Jaiden, whom he shares with first wife Amy Ferson.
Robach has since been married to husband Andrew Shue, 55, since February 6, 2010. The Michigan native is a mom to two girls – Ava and Annie with ex-husband Tim McIntosh – and the Melrose Square Alum has sons Nate, Aidan, and Wyatt from a previous romance.
On Wednesday, Fiebig first spoke through her divorce attorney Stephanie Lehman about her split from Holmes.
“During the holiday season and in the face of challenging times, Marilee has focused solely on the welfare of her 9-year-old daughter,” Lehman said Daily Mail in an opinion. “To that end, TJ’s attorney and I have worked together to pursue their divorce privately, expeditiously, and as amicably as possible.”
Lehman added: “Nonetheless, we remain disappointed by TJ’s lack of discretion, respect and sensitivity towards Marilee and the party’s daughter. Marilee was touched by the outpouring of support and looks forward to a fresh start in this new year.”
Fiebig made her Instagram account public again and shared several messages on her Instagram Stories on Christmas Eve and Boxing Day.
“I will take color over white lights every day. Merry Christmas Eve,” she wrote on a photo of a Christmas tree.
The day after, Fiebig posted a selfie with Sabine. “Exhausted but counting down the days to this happy… #washingtondcbound #family.”
The attorney also subtly showed her support for Andrew Shue and his family when she “liked” a picture posted by Nate Shue. “RIDERS ON THE STORM. ON TO ’23,” he captioned the Instagram shot with his dad and brothers.
Holmes and Robach did not perform GMA3 since December 2, where they appeared to poke fun at their off-screen drama.
“It’s been a great week,” Holmes told viewers during the show, adding that he wanted it to “go on and on and on.”
Robach replied: “Speak for yourself,” before adding: “I’m really looking forward to the weekend – and I’m sure everyone else is too. We all love our Fridays around here. At least some of us do.”
Although Holmes and Robach have retired from the afternoon news show, they have been spotted together on numerous occasions. The duo had lunch near Robach’s New York home on December 15 and were spotted at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson Airport on December 26.
