Adam Carolla and his wife Lynette have been married for almost 19 years, but they are now getting a divorce.
Carolla, who is 56 years old, told people who listen to his podcast, The Adam Carolla Show, about the news at the start of the show on Friday.
He said, “We have some bad news to start off the show: Lynette and I are getting a divorce.” “I didn’t want to get this or do this. Both Lynette and I got divorced when we were young. Nobody ever wants their marriage to end.”
Before they got married in September 2002, Carolla and Lynette had been together for about six years. Later, they had twins, Natalia and Santino “Sonny” Carolla, who will be 15 next month.
Carolla said on his podcast, “It’s hard that we haven’t seen each other in a while.” “It’s always been about the kids.”
He made a joke by saying, “They’re doing well—some might even say too well.” He said, “I wanted some damage, but I didn’t get much.”
The comedian went on to say that he and Lynette are “very different,” which is one reason they broke up.
He told her, “It’s been hard.” “We have been together for 25 years. We are very different people, and our ideas about life are also very different. It wasn’t a competition, and nobody cheated. It wasn’t either long-term gambling or COVID. Just that the two people were so different and had such different ways of thinking and living that they couldn’t find a middle ground.”
He kept saying, “It’s tough and weird. People get divorced all the time, or at least a lot of them do. but that was never supposed to happen. I guess that wasn’t an option. My thing was like, whatever isn’t working, we’ll make it work. But if you can’t make something work, it’s probably for the best, so I’m not too upset about it.”
Caroll said that his relationship with Lynette is “okay” and that he and Lynette have made a “nesting” plan for their children. This means that the kids stay in their home while their parents take turns living there.
“Right now, we’re nesting,” he told her, “so you stay home and the kids don’t go anywhere.” “It’s a big improvement. When my parents split up, my dad just moved out and slept on the couch at my grandparents’ house.
In the early 2000s, Carolla co-hosted The Man Show with Jimmy Kimmel. He said that he was “ashamed” to tell the public about his divorce at first.
“I feel the most shame or embarrassment,” he said. “Divorce makes me feel like I’ve failed,” she said.
Before moving on with his show, Caroll said, “In the end, it’s better, my life is better, and I’m fine with it.” “That doesn’t make much sense. It’s more like, “I don’t want this to happen, but if it does, I’ll be better off.” I like to think about things.
