1.Friends say Lachlan Gillespie tried to save his marriage to Emma Watkins right before The Wiggles couple announced their separation.
It is now being reported, by Sunday Confidential, that Gillespie has been left completely devastated by the end of his marriage, and that he desperately tried to save the relationship right before they decided to part ways.
“The truth is they are actually still friends and it is all very civil, but Lachy is absolutely heartbroken,” a friend of the couple told the publication.
“He was completely besotted by Emma and worshipped her and still does. He tried absolutely everything to make it work, but in the end, he couldn’t. His heart has been broken.”
The friend also apparently shut down any suggestion that Gillespie left his wife due to her struggle with endometriosis.
⭐️ Lachy ⭐️ We have, and continue to share, the most beautiful life together, but we wanted to let you know that privately for the last six months we have been navigating through a trial separation, and we have made the decision to separate as a couple. Throughout that period, we have performed hundreds of shows together and that is always a continued source of joy for us both. We have embraced this as a very positive change in our relationship. Our incredible friendship has been strengthened throughout this time and what we have discovered is that, more than ever, first and foremost we love and adore performing as Emma and Lachy in The Wiggles and having the privilege of celebrating this happiness with extraordinary families around the world. We have chosen a different path to travel in our personal lives, but please know that we are stronger than ever and we can’t wait to see you at a show soon. We will not be commenting beyond this, and we thank you in advance for respecting our privacy. Lots of love, Emma and Lachy xx @lachy_wiggle
The couple has said that neither of them will be leaving The Wiggles, and will continue to work together.
“We have chosen a different path to travel in our personal lives, but please know that we are stronger than ever and we can’t wait to see you at a show soon,” they said in their joint statement, which they shared to their respective Instagram profiles, on Friday afternoon.
