Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, November 9) — Filipino-American TikTok sensation Bella Poarch on Wednesday confirmed that she filed for divorce, which shocked her fans as she did not say that she was married in the first place.

Last week, US online tabloid TMZ reported that the 25-year-old internet star filed divorce papers in the Los Angeles County to end her nearly four-year marriage to Tyler Poarch. It also reported that she cited "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the divorce.

Poarch broke her silence online days after the story blew up.

"I'm sorry if everyone thinks I've been keeping a secret. I will address my divorce when I am ready to speak about it. In the meantime, please respect mine and Tyler's privacy," she wrote.

Poarch, whose real name is Denarie Taylor, also said she is taking a break from social media.

Born to Filipino parents in Pangasinan, she is one of TikTok's most popular personalities with 92 million followers after publishing her first viral video in August 2020.
