Joey Fatone is saying bye, bye bye, to his wife Kelly Baldwin.
According to records obtained by Page Six, the *NSYNC member has filed to divorce Baldwin after 15 years of marriage. The pop star supposedly filed docs in Orange County, Florida, on May 13, though Fatone officially confirmed the couple's separation to Us Weekly at the Critics Choice Real TV Awards this past weekend, stating, “I was, at one point, married, and now I am separated, going through a divorce.”
Surprisingly, Fatone and Baldwin, high school sweethearts who wed in September 2004, have apparently been estranged for years. As early as 2014, the 42-year-old has reportedly been linked to Brazilian star Izabel Araujo, who also was in attendance for the crooner's Coachella set with Ariana Grande in April.
How long the married couple has been separated remains a mystery — which makes the situation even stranger.
In fact, it was just last October that Araujo celebrated their four-year anniversary as a couple on Instagram — and her post seems to corroborate the timeline. "4 years ago I met him at #halloweenhorrornights for our first date. We’ve been celebrating it every year at the same place ever since," she wrote at the time. "Not your typical love story but I wouldn’t change a thing!! Looking forward to celebrating many more with my partner in crime!"
Not to mention, Fatone and Araujo have been spotted at numerous red carpet events together in recent months.
The "Pop" singer and Baldwin, who share two daughters — Briahna, 18, and Kloey, 9 — previously dismissed divorce rumors back in August 2013, which Fatone denied.
