Crystal Bowersox Splits From Husband

Crystal Bowersox and her husband Brian Walker are getting divorced. The American Idol season 9 runner up releases a statement exclusively to People magazine.

“After two and a half years, we have decided to end our marriage,” the couple tells PEOPLE in an exclusive statement. “The friendship and love which brought us together remains strong, and we will continue to support each other in our careers and personal lives. We are hopeful that people will be respectful of our privacy as we face this emotional and challenging time for our family.”

Their courtship and marriage back in 2010 was pretty quick, coming within a couple of months after breaking up with a man she’d dated for a few years prior and during her run on Idol.

Crystal recently released her sophomore album, All This For That, and is set to play Patsy Cline this summer on Broadway.
