Jodie Kidd has confirmed she and second husband David Blakeley have called time on their relationship
Jodie Kidd has split from husband David Blakeley.
The 36-year-old star - who has three-year-old son Indio from a previous relationship with Argentine polo player Andrea Vianini - has confirmed her relationship with her second husband, who she married last August after a whirlwind ten-month romance, is over.
Speaking last night (29.01.15), Jodie said: "It's with sadness that David and I have separated. My priority remains my son Indio."
The former model - who was previously married to internet entrepreneur Aidan Butler - is said to have called time on the relationship just before Christmas.
A source revealed: "She now admits they rushed into the marriage and didn't really know each other well enough to make such a big commitment.
"It just wasn't working so they mutually made the difficult decision to end things rather than stay in a relationship that didn't have a future."
Jodie has since thrown herself into training for the Channel 4 winter sports competition 'The Jump' alongside fellow celebrities including Heather Mills, Mike Tindall and Joey Essex.
The source added to The Sun newspaper: "Jodie spent the new year with her son and family skiing and was due to come back, but then she got the call to do 'The Jump'.
"It's been a great distraction given what she's going through and has let her escape the situation a bit, keep busy and work out what to do in future."
The blonde beauty previously claimed David had restored her faith in marriage and insisted they would be together forever.
She said at the time of their wedding: "As soon as David and I met, I went through a huge 360 in my mind.
"I thought, 'That's it, we're going to spend the rest of our lives together'. Everything has changed in my life."
