Long Island Medium Theresa Caputo and her husband of 28 years, Larry Caputo, issued a statement earlier today announcing they are officially splitting up.
“After 28 years of marriage, we have decided to legally separate,” reads the couple’s statement. “We will always love each other and our two wonderful children. We are united in supporting each other and our family.” The statement concludes with the plea: “Please respect our privacy during this time.”
The potential split between Theresa and Larry did not blindside fans of the show, as their relationship issues have been featured on the current season of Long Island Medium. “Since the last season of Long Island Medium and through a period of time, Larry and I’s relationship has changed,” Theresa revealed in a recent episode. “We’ve been there for each other, you know, through thick and thin, you know, good times, and right now are not such great times,” she added to a close friend. “I don’t understand it. I lay in bed, and I say to myself, ‘How did this happen? How did I get here?'”
Theresa did not mention divorce in her conversation, but she continued to talk about the “strain” on her and Larry’s relationship: “I sometimes interpret it as growing apart. I’ve changed and he has changed. We’re both not happy and, you know, it’s hard to try to work through that,” she said, just before tears began to fall. “It’s not easy for me to sit here and to talk about this, to talk about my feelings, to talk about how my marriage is, but you know, things do change.”
Among the things that apparently don’t change is Theresa’s love of big hair. Check out this throwback photo of Theresa and Larry waaaaay back in the day, in which Theresa has her locks piled high — albeit in a different manner than her current trademark ‘do:
