Canadian singer and keyboardist David Foster (more successful as the most popular producer) says he will never reveal the true reason why he and Yolanda divorced! David Foster, who is currently married to American singer Katharine McPhee, announced his split from Yolanda Hadid in 2015
Singer David Foster is silent about the true reason that led to his divorce from Yolanda Hadid.
In a new Netflix documentary, David Foster: Off The Record, which premiered this Wednesday, the 70-year-old Grammy winner talks about his professional and personal life, including his 2015 split from Hadid, his fourth wife.
At the time, Yolanda Hadid was struggling with a diagnosis of Lyme disease, however Foster said her health was not the reason for their final marriage.
“How can I leave a sick woman?” Foster said in the documentary. “The thing is, that was not the reason I left. It was for another reason, which I will never reveal - it had nothing to do with her illness."
Foster, who recently celebrated his wedding anniversary with Katharine McPhee, also mentioned his disdain for her appearance in The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills from 2012.
“My wife wanted to do a show at the time,” he said. "I didn't want to be the guy who could say no."
In announcing their divorce in December 2015, Foster and Hadid said in a joint statement that they had decided to "go their separate ways." The couple entered into a relationship stamped in their passport in November 2011.
“We spent nine wonderful and joyful years together. During this time, we have experienced love, friendship and the inevitable challenges associated with managing marriage, careers, blended families and health problems,”the statement said at the time.
“We are grateful for the years we spent together and truly believe that we did our best,” the couple said in a statement. “I hope we can continue the journey forward with everything we have learned about each other and with the love and respect that we will always have for each other.”
Hadid, 56, is dating boyfriend Joseph Gingoli, whom she says she “loves very much” when she spoke on the Daily Dish on Bravo TV in May.
On an episode of the 2016 reality TV show RHOBH, Hadid explained that "divorce is almost like death," adding that "if you stop making each other happy, you shouldn't be together." Then she said, “This is shocking. David was my life partner. My best friend. And I miss my best friend.
While detailing his new documentary, Foster recently said that the film provides many more unprecedented perspectives on his life.
“I've never been one of those who exposed the vulnerable side of me, and I've never really talked about what makes me upset or the ups and downs in my life - the good, the bad, and the terrible,” Foster said.
“While it’s hard for me to watch parts of it, I knew it would be wrong to try to censor him (Director Barry Avrich) at every level,” he added. "So, I trust him and believe in him, sometimes I'm embarrassed, but I don't regret anything."
