AJ McLean, a renowned singer from the Backstreet Boys, is taking a step back from his marriage to work on his relationship with his wife, Rochelle DeAnna McLean. The couple informed TMZ that they have mutually agreed to a temporary separation in order to focus on themselves and their marriage, with the intention of building a stronger future together.
In a joint statement, the couple said, “Marriage is hard but worth it. We have mutually decided to separate temporarily to work on ourselves, and on our marriage with the hope of building a stronger future.” They added that their plan is to reunite and continue nurturing their love for one another and their family.
As they navigate this difficult period, AJ and Rochelle have asked for respect and privacy, emphasizing the challenges that separation poses and the fact that children are involved. They urged the public to be kind and considerate during this time.
The couple has been together for quite some time, having started dating in 2005. They eventually tied the knot in 2011, in a lavish ceremony held at the Beverly Hills Hotel, with the other Backstreet Boys members present to witness the occasion. AJ and Rochelle have two daughters, Ava and Lyric, who are undoubtedly at the center of their parent’s decision to work on their relationship.
Despite the challenges they face, the couple remains hopeful and committed to their marriage, seeking to emerge from this temporary separation stronger and more united than ever. Their willingness to put in the effort and prioritize their family is a testament to the love and dedication they share.
