The real housewives of Atlanta Alum Cynthia Bailey could be getting divorced for the second time. The former supermodel was married to Peter Thomas for seven years and vowed to remarry. But after Bailey met and fell in love with sportscaster Mike Hill, she changed her mind. She and Hill wed in a lavish ceremony in front of 250 guests in October 2020, and Bailey even chose to leave the show to protect her marriage. However, it seems that even this attempt has failed as there has been speculation that they are over and the divorce is imminent.
Fans have noticed that Hill and Bailey aren’t as public friends as they used to be in the past. Now, The Jasmine Brand’s exclusive report claims a source revealed that Hill and Bailey are split and have already filed for divorce.
“[They have been] separated for a while,” the source claims. The source added that everything is “amicable” between the two. “They really love each other, and it wasn’t anything scandalous or anyone’s fault…it just didn’t work out,” the source continued.
In the days leading up to the news, fans began speculating that the two weren’t dating, with hints from their social media accounts and beyond. Hill was recently spotted without his wedding ring while partying with friends at a sports bar.
A video from his night surfaced online, with fans finding his behavior inappropriate for a married man. In the clip, a mysterious woman holds onto Hil while she performs a backflip. Hill cheers and smacks her.
Bailey removed “Hill” from her last name on social media. She also removed her hashtag #CHill. Neither has posted anything about the other for months, with Bailey’s last post being in April 2022.
Even more suspicious was the fact that their two-year wedding anniversary was on October 10th. Neither greeted the other. There have been some hiccups in their relationship.
Hill has admitted that he was never faithful in a relationship before Bailey and that he has never been in love with any woman, not even both of his ex-wives. There was also the alleged cheating scandal of a woman who claimed Hill was inappropriate with her in her DMs. She has since deleted the tweets and her accounts, with Hill denying her claims and threatening to sue for defamation.
In January 2022, Hill opened up about marital issues with Bailey. When speaking to the Behind the velvet rope On the podcast, Hill spoke about an intense fight they had leading up to their one-year wedding anniversary.
“Sunday was our anniversary and then I took Monday off and had to go back to work on Tuesday. We basically stayed in town and went to this great hotel in town in West Hollywood and we just chilled and went to dinner and enjoyed each other’s company,” he explained. “But I’ll say because we’re also very transparent… yes, we argue and I’ll tell you right away that Sunday was great [but] That Monday I thought, ‘We might not make it to sophomore year.’ Because it just happened…I’m not getting too far into our business…it wasn’t malicious…it was just a misunderstanding. Often it is just communication.”
