- Julianne Hough was seen hanging out with actor Ben Barnes yesterday.
- Julianne and her husband, Brooks Laich, are not self-isolating together at the moment.
Julianne Hough and her husband, Brooks Laich have had their fair share of drama this year. A few months ago, Julianne went out without her wedding ring, and Brooks’ closest friends were reportedly encouraging him to focus on himself while Julianne did her own thing. Now, Julianne and Brooks are spending time apart during the self-isolation period, and Julianne’s hanging out with someone else.
While out and about in Los Angeles yesterday, Julianne was spotted taking a walk with Chronicles of Narnia actor Ben Barnes. And yes—there are pics, which you can check out riiiiight here. If you’re wondering where Brooks was, he’s currently self-isolating in Idaho with the cutest little Siberian Husky pup. Julianne chose to isolate instead at their residence in California.
When People reported on Brooks and Julianne’s marriage problems earlier in the year, a source said they’ve been trying to work things out and are trying to keep it on the down low as much as possible. “It seems they are not giving up but also not talking about it. They want to do this their way. They don’t want to discuss their marriage. They have been having problems, but many people do,” a source explained. “Maybe it’s just a phase, maybe not. But either way, they are not going to address it publicly right now.”
“If it was up to Brooks, he would stay married,” a separate source told People. “And he is obviously still hoping things will work out with Jules,” adding that Julianne “already has her own life that she seems happy with,” while Brooks “keeps holding on.” 😕
Though Julianne and Brooks are isolating away from each other right now, it’s very possible that they could’ve just had work responsibilities in different states before the pandemic happened and had no choice but to stay put after travel became dangerous. Fingers crossed they can work through everything once they’re reunited!
