Michelle Branch divorces Patrick Carney

Michelle Branch and husband Patrick Carney split after three years of marriage.

“Saying I’m absolutely devastated is not even close to how I feel for myself and for my family,” the 39-year-old singer said in a statement to TMZ on Thursday.

“The rug has been completely pulled from under me and now I have to figure out how to proceed. With such small children, I ask for privacy and friendliness.”

The couple shares son Rhys James (4) and daughter Willie, who was born earlier this year.

Branch and Carney, the drummer for The Black Keys, first met at a Grammy party in 2015 when she was just finalizing her divorce from ex-husband Teddy Landau. Two years later they were engaged.

The couple met in 2015 and married two years later.

However, while planning their wedding, the singer discovered that she was expecting their first child together. Rhys James was born in April 2018.

“Patrick and I are overjoyed in love with our son Rhys James Carney,” the “Everywhere” singer wrote on Instagram at the time.

A year after welcoming their son, the couple finally tied the knot at the Marigny Opera House in New Orleans.

Carney had become a stepparent to Branch’s oldest daughter.

While they were trying to expand their family again, the singer revealed in December 2020 that she had suffered a miscarriage.

“I experienced my first miscarriage…” she announced on social media while celebrating the holiday. “But alas, in between crying and bingeing on Christmas cookies, I decided to put on lipstick and put on a dress. We drank champagne all day. I made an incredible meal and sang Christmas carols, nestled by a roaring fire. ”
