Very sad to post this
A sad and difficult time indeed. I wish them both well, and I hope that everyone gives them space and privacy as they move on with their lives.
I wish Michelle happiness.
This can be interpreted in many ways.I love Michelle, and wish her the very best as her life takes her in a new direction.
I wish Clay the very best. I pray that he finds joy and love in the future. 💙
This news is not unexpected for some of us. We noticed that Michelle had stopped wearing her wedding ring and had removed Clay's name for her Twitter bio.
For Michelle--I wish her, as always, the very best that life has to offer. May her future hold success, happiness and true love.
I am sure that we at this Forum will give Michelle space and privacy to explore her new life. If she stops by here, we want her to know that our love 💖and hope🙏 for her remain as it was in the beginning.
Here's a link to a photo gallery of Clay and Michelle posted at the Providence Journal:
Yes, it was disheartening to see that she hasn't worn her ring for a long time and noticed he didn't appear at any significant events with her. It's interesting that Clay left in his twitter handle that he was the proud husband of Michelle, up to the point he filed for divorce.
I hope and wish the best for the both of them, in whatever their paths might be. Michelle does seem like she has strong support, yoga, and most importantly her awesome attitude and smile to see it through. MKF throws her lots of love and warm feelings.
Sad news indeed. Wishing Michelle the best during this difficult time.
Deep down inside I am sad their marriage is ending on so many levels (ie spiritually, emotionally, etc) . . . but superficially I think Michelle can do hotter
. . . I can't believe it has been 6 years since I last posted here. I miss Michelle's skating.

I am so sorry to hear this. They always seemed so happy. Wishing Michelle and Clay all the best.
While I had the feeling that something wasn't right for some time (e.g., the lack of pictures in recent months of Michelle and Clay together), I am still utterly heartbroken over this news. Both Michelle and Clay are fine young people; and I hope that out of this sad turn of events they will both land on their feet and go on to enjoy the best of lives and experience much happiness and fulfillment.

Wish her the very best. Seems odd he is asking for attorney's fees. Not wrong or anything, just odd. Did Michelle go to Worlds?
Since I don't subscribe to any of the social media this is a total shock to me.
I wish both of them the very best.
I also hope that the announcement does not become tabloid fodder
It's none of my business but I must say that I was really surprised when Michelle married a Politician.
Just saw this on another article elsewhere, and I was so hoping it wasn't true. Especially after the interview that was posted here last week where Michelle said she was interested in having children. Hoping both Michelle and Clay can both come out of this in a good place.
Healing wishes to all. Spring blossom, renewal is thy name.
I am at a loss for words and feeling very sad tonight. This is a very sad time for the Michelle Kwan Forum also. Michelle is so loved especially here and she always will be.
I wish them both luck in their future endeavors and true happiness.
Adding to all the support for Michelle shared here.
I'm very sad for both of them! I've been seeing this news the past couple of days... much of it mean spirited towards Clay and the whole Prius thing. I hope the media forgets about it and leaves them alone.
Very sad news. I wish them both fine experiences in the future. We here at MKF love her so much and we wish her success and happiness in her future undertakings.

Families come together in times of sadness as well as times of joy. This is one of the sad ones, but it is easier when you can share with those who have been on the journey with you. I appreciate everyone posting, we are a strong group.
My sister and I were speculating before the announcement (same reasons as others have stated here as we MKF'ers notice every little thing), so I wasn't really surprised at the news. I wish Michelle find her happiness in the future.
I don't follow social media, but a violinist of all people told me about this. I am sad for both of them, and wish them happiness in the future. I noted it said MK wants to have kids in the future. I have faith that it does lie in her future. She'd be a wonderful mom. She is strong enough to bounce back from this.
Side note: belladella, how wonderful to see you here. It's been years since I've posted, and probably over a decade since I've seen other MKFers. I still remember you checking over my violin the first time we met! I have seen you at skating competitions though--on tv!
