29 Jan Elliot Page Files for Divorce From Emma Portner
Elliot Page and Emma Portner are getting divorced after separating this summer.
Page, the 33-year-old Oscar-nominated star of “Juno,” and Portner, a 26-year-old choreographer and dance teacher, announced their marriage early in 2018 after having only hinted at their relationship on social media.
Page publicly came out as transgender in a heartfelt statement just two months ago.
Portner wrote a loving Instagram caption following Page’s statement, where he announced he goes by the pronouns he/they.
“I am so proud of @elliotpage. Trans, queer and non-binary people are a gift to this world. I also ask for patience & privacy but that you join me in the fervent support of trans life every single day. Elliot’s existence is a gift in and of itself. Shine on sweet E. Love you so much,” Portner wrote alongside Page’s statement.
The “Umbrella Academy” star, 33, filed for divorce in a Manhattan court, according to TMZ.
In their joint statement, the former couple clarified that they are still close, and there is no bad blood between the two.
“After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce following our separation last summer. We have the utmost respect for each other and remain close friends.”
The split comes after three years of marriage.
