The 55-year-old interior designer shared the news on Instagram, writing: “Sometimes in life, our paths change directions and now this is one of those times for me, with Steve and I separating.
“I will not be making any further statements about this and whilst I appreciate your support I ask that you respect our right to privacy.”
Since making the announcement overnight, fans of the interior designer have offered their words of support.
“Perfectly put! All the best for your next chapter,” commented one fan.
“May your days ahead bring you more peace and comfort and my wish for you is that this allows a new and happier chapter to begin for you when the time is right,” wrote another.
“Always sadness when any relationship comes to an end. But, you are one fierce woman who knows her mind and her worth. Take care of you,” commented someone else.
