Gypsy Rose Blanchard has officially called it quits from Ryan Anderson.

The ex-con filed for divorce on Monday just one week after they called it quits, according to TMZ.

The reason for the split is unclear as of this time. The fallout of the relationship may come to light in the upcoming Lifetime show, which is expected to focus on her life outside of prison.

Anderson revealed on his Instagram Sunday that fans might see what caused their split when the series is released.

“We were filming a lot, so stay tuned for that,” he said.

Blanchard, 32, originally revealed that she and the special education teacher were splitting on a Facebook post on March 28, per People.

“People have been asking what is going on in my life,” she wrote. “Unfortunately my husband and I are going through a separation and I moved in with my parents home down the bayou.”

Blanchard wed her ex during her eight-year prison sentence in July 2022. As of now, she claims she is listening to her heart and needs time to find herself.

Blanchard was released from prison years after she pleaseded guilty to the murder of her mother, Dee Dee Blanchard, in 2015, alongside then-boyfriend, Nick Godejohn.

Until recently, they were inseparable as they attended the premiere of Lifetime’s “Prison Confessions of Gypsy Rose Blanchard” in January and appeared alongside each other for a slew of interviews.

She even bragged about her private life with her ex, claiming his “D is fire.”

Clapping back at haters for judging her love life on social media, she wrote, “they [are] jealous because you are rocking my world every night … happy wife happy life.”

Yet, their romance was not as it appears as one close friend  Nadiya Vizier told People that Gypsy was allegedly worried her estranged husband would hit her.


“Gypsy said that she was afraid he was going to hit her,” she said. “He didn’t — but that happened in the past with her mother. So, her first instinct was to tighten up and be prepared.”

She further claimed that on the night Gypsy decided to leave Anderson, he screamed in her face.

On the other hand, Anderson claimed he was “blindsided” by the split, saying that “it just came out of the blue.”

Gypsy has been as of late seen rekindling the relationship with ex–fiancé, Ken Urker, whom she was engaged to for a year in 2018.

On April 3, the two were photographed holding hands while outside a Dollar General in South Louisiana. They also got matching tattoos.
