The founder of Jaclyn Hill Cosmetics, 32, and Jon tied the knot in 2009.

However, in 2018, they announced that they were going their separate ways with Jaclyn, who said they wouldn’t match as husband and wife, but would “always make good friends.”

The couple had been together for nine years before breaking up.

Jon had previously opened up about his struggle with drug addiction and confessed to Billboard in 2019 that this was the reason he and Jaclyn broke up.

“During our third year of marriage, it got to a point where I started having seizures because I was using so many things,” he told the outlet at the time. “I started breaking out in hives. So it became clear that something was not right.”

Jon revealed that he eventually got sober, but Jaclyn “decided she didn’t want to be with him anymore”.

“That was a huge shock to me,” he told Billboard. “We were married for nine years. For some reason I was thinking how great it would be to enjoy Christmas with her while I was clean. She often said, “You don’t love me because you never want to do anything to me.” But it was because I kept hiding [my addiction] always hers.”

“So when I came home to see all my stuff gone and not know who she is with, I was devastated,” he continued. “Within two months I was back on drugs.”

In an interview, Hill revealed that his drug addiction drove her away.

At the time of the interview, Jon said he was clean.

Last month, in an Instagram Q&A, Jaclyn revealed that Jon “has not been doing well for a long time. He hasn’t had a phone in months and no one has contacted him.”

She is currently engaged to Jordan Torrey, who goes by the name Jordan Farnum.
