‘Eat, Pray, Love’ Author Elizabeth Gilbert Splits From Husband José Nunes

Eat, Pray, Love author Elizabeth Gilbert is splitting from her husband, José Nunes, after over 12 years of companionship.

Gilbert announced the news in a Facebook post on Friday, writing, “I am separating from the man whom many of you know as “Felipe” – the man whom I fell in love with at the end of the Eat, Pray, Love journey. He has been my dear companion for over 12 years, and they have been wonderful years. Our split is very amicable. Our reasons are very personal.

See the post in its entirety below:

Gilbert’s first marriage to Michael Cooper ended in 2002 after 8 years and prompted the trip that inspired her bestselling memoir. She married Nunes in 2007.

Gilbert had nothing but praise for Nunes in a 2015 interview with People magazine, calling him her “favorite souvenir” from her trip oversees.

“We’ve settled into something that’s very nourishing and very sweet,” she said. “And I’m not sure it’s because we find each other fascinating so much as because we continue to show up and show interest in each other.”
