ALAN Carr has split from husband Paul Drayton after 13 years together.
The comedian announced in a joint statement that they are ending their three-year marriage.
It read: “After 13 years as a couple and three years of marriage, Alan Carr and Paul Drayton would like to announce that they are separating.
“They have together and amicably made the difficult decision to divorce and go their separate ways.
“We ask that their privacy be respected at this sensitive time.”
The couple previously dated for 10 years before Paul proposed in 2016.
He surprised Alan by hiding his engagement ring in Alan’s dessert during a romantic vacation in Indonesia.
In 2018, Alan’s best friend Adele ordained so she could celebrate at the comedian’s wedding.
The superstar singer called Alan and Paul, 50, in her LA garden during their first dance.
She then flew the three of them to Las Vegas to see singer Celine Dion perform.
But not long after their honeymoon in Mexico, Paul sought help with alcoholism and entered rehab.
The pandemic also made it difficult for Paul, who raised concerns when he Post a photo of yourself with a black eye last August and told a fan “we had a bad line”.
He later revealed that he caused his own black eye – by punching himself in the face.
Paul publicly apologized to Alan, saying: “I feel very fragile at the moment and would like to say that Alan would not and has never hit me,” he wrote.
“And I’m very disappointed that he has to deal with this today.”
Alan also insists he is not responsible for the injury. He said Paul was drinking again – and he was supporting his husband through a difficult time.
Alan told The Sun: “While I was filming on location a few weeks ago, Paul fell out of his car and started drinking again.
“When I returned home from Wales, Paul was covered in scratches and bruises from a drinking binge.
“We’re currently working together to get the help he needs to get better, which is our number one priority right now.”
Three days earlier, Paul had shared a photo of himself looking tired with vomit on his T-shirt.
He captioned it: “This is what alcoholism does to you. My gorgeous husband took this photo. “
In October, Paul was stopped by police after being seen “walking from one side of the street to the other” – then backing into their car.
He has been informed that he faces a prison sentence for the incident that occurred three miles from the £2.7 million shared with Alan.
He was disqualified from driving and was given unconditional bail for sentencing in January.
