The former couple who found love in the pods, took to their respecting Instagram accounts on August 17 to announce they were ending their marriage.
The joint statement read:
What’s going on, family. After much thought, we’re saddened to share that we have separated and will begin the process of divorcing.
While we have love for each other, our lives are going in different directions, and that’s okay.
Coming to this decision was far from easy and will always wish each other the absolute best.
We hope you all will give us some space as we close this chapter of our lives.
Thank you to our close friends and family for loving us both through our experience.
To the Love Is Blind family and Netflix, thank you for this unforgettable opportunity and support.
Each of you have brought overwhelming love and joy into our lives.
This experience has taught us so much about ourselves, vulnerability and love.
We don’t regret a single thing!

Now, that the divorce is final, the reality of it appears to have hit Iyanna like a ton of bricks.
She posted an emotional video on TikTok where she mourned the end of the marriage she had so much hope for.
Well, it is official. Divorce really is like a grief and as much as people laugh at how long we were married I think my expectations made it real, my hope made it real, my effort made it real, my tears made it real…
So, I’m crying for that girl that I was at the beginning of this marriage. I was so hopeful, and I had less baggage… and I was optimistic, and I was healed.
And I’m crying for that marriage that I thought could work. I’m crying for that man that I believed he was. That man he convinced me he was in the beginning.
Iyanna McNeely hinted at what went wrong in her marriage to Jarrette Jones.
“In between all of that very scheduled filming, there were good moments in there, there was connection, and then cameras left and sh*t went…sh*t hit the wall.”
Please don’t be misled by her tears and emotions.
Iyanna added, “But, don’t get it twisted. I may be crying and I may be sad right now…but, I’m happy that I’m moving forward. I’m happy that I’m out of something that no longer works for me.”
In the caption of her TikTok video, Iyanna wrote:
I love that man. Of course I can only speak to my experience and I hope that Jarrette can grow to be truly vulnerable amongst those he’s loves.
I do not regret it but instead will and am learning from it.
As I continue to process, I’m sure I’ll share more about my marriage on my podcast but for now, I wanted to share to those who may relate. For anyone else going through a divorce, a breakup, or just general grief, it’s okay.
It’s okay to feel, it’s okay to process, and it’s okay to lean on those closest to you.
Every experience was meant to teach, prune, and stretch. Embrace it.
