Aisha Tyler’s Husband Files For Divorce After 20 Years Of Marriage

After 20 years of marriage, Aisha Tyler and her husband Jeff Tietjens have decided to call it quits. Who the hell is Jeff Tietjens you ask? A man who Tyler met at her alma mater, Dartmouth College in New Hampshire. Tyler and Tietjens were college sweethearts and then got married in 1994. Aww.

Currently, Aisha Tyler is one of the stars of The Talk, a daily talk show that also features Sharon Osbourne, Julie Chen and others. Back in 1991-2001 Tyler was the host of the hit show on E! called Talk Soup as well as currently being the voice of Lana Kane in Archer. Basically she is kicking serious career ass. Tietjens went on to become some lawyer. Methinks maybe he was sick of her badassery? Ok ok, just a thought, I’m not going to speculate or begin to know whether that is what happened but I’m just saying.

The couple filed for divorce earlier this month in Los Angeles Superior Court, and we actually learn now that they have been separated since January 2015. According to court documents, Tietjens is not seeking spousal support (or what is usually known as alimony) but he suggested that “he’s reserving the right to ask for such later.”

There was also buzz back in 2013 about Tyler’s inability to conceive a child after years of trying. Now that she’s in her 40s, she admitted that she was going to stop trying. Could that have something to do with it? I guess we won’t ever really know.

Either way I wish them both the best of luck and I know in my heart that Aisha is going to be a-ok because she is a successful queen.
