Ray Quinn has confirmed he has split from his wife Emma Stephens after three years of marriage
Ray Quinn has split from his wife Emma Stephens.
The former 'X Factor' contestant has confirmed he has called time on his relationship with the blonde beauty - with whom he has a two-year-old son, Harry Frank - after two years together.
The 26-year-old star - who met Emma while they appeared together in the West End production of Grease in 2008 - said in an official statement: "Unfortunately the speculation is true and Emma and I have regrettably parted ways.
"Out of respect for the privacy of my family I don't want to delve into my private life too much however what I will say is that our lives, after a period of time, have gone down separate paths."
Ray - who wed Emma in March 2012 - added he is trying to stay focussed on his career during the split and is looking toward his upcoming UK tour and the release of his new single.
He said: "Despite this obviously being a very difficult period in my life I am keeping busy with my new music and will be continuing with my UK tour and the release of my new single as planned."
The 'Dancing On Ice' winner also took to his Facebook page yesterday (20.02.15) where he urged fans to buy his new album, the first since his debut record 'Doing It My Way' was released in 2007.
He wrote: "I CANT STRESS HOW IMPORTANT THIS IS!! WITH YOU GUYS ON BOARD YOU CAN AND MAY JUST HELP LAUNCH ME AT THIS CRITICAL POINT IN MY CAREER."
