They say nothing lasts forever and, unfortunately, that often applies to marriages. And, right now, no celeb knows that truth better than talk show host Aisha Tyler, because new reports have revealed that her husband recently served her with divorce papers.

According to media reports, Aisha Tyler and her husband, Jeff Tietjens, were college sweethearts at Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire and originally jumped the broom back in 1994. But after more than 20 years of marriage, the couple separated back in January.

Now, reports reveal that Tietjens finally decided to file for divorce in L.A. Superior Court earlier this month.

Although Tietjens cites “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the divorce, some fans are wondering whether the couple’s marriage fell apart over their inability to conceive a child.

On her daytime talk show, “The Talk,” Tyler has been very vocal with audiences about her fertility issues and how the couple was never able to have a child of their own.

“We just decided it wasn’t worth it to go through that and so we decided to stop. It was better to not go through that torture,” she admitted about trying to conceive for two years, which included trying in vitro fertilization.

“After 40, your chances of getting pregnant are between two and eight percent, and in my particular case they were less than five percent,” she said of their struggle with in vitro fertilization.

However, it’s unclear whether that led to the downfall of their union.

Since the couple lives in California, Tietjen could get half of Tyler’s fortune. However, unlike most other celebrity divorces, Tyler and Tietjens seem to want to keep things simple and peaceful. Tietjens has decided not to ask for any financial support, right now, but he has reserved the right to ask for it at a later date.

Sources claim that the couple plans to remain friends in the wake of the divorce.

Our condolences go out to Tyler and Tietjens.

    OH NO! that’s awful. this is one reason why i always though jimmy fallon seemed like such a sweet guy…his wife is much older than him and she couldn’t have kids either, so they adopted. idk if the child thing is why aisha and her husband are divorcing, but it seems like men have a problem with women not being able to have kids. it takes a man who really loves his wife to stick around regardless of these kinds of problems. but i can also understand a man wanting to have seeds of his own. oh well, i wish aisha well.

    quit quit it half the black men who get someone pregnant cant afford a child but they also believe the ignorant notion that you have to carry your seed? into the next generaton but why .. WHY THE FU..CK YOU CARE bout the next generation of spongers off your fortune ,or dead beat daddys you give birth to the world has to have people and to me thats the only real reason we need babies in it .. not for the stupid reason people give over 89 percent of children concieve in the USa are break babies or bastards meaning not meant to be concieved then .. people like ray carruth of the panthers killed his baby moma because she refuse to abort , huh you know how man others wish they could do the same . .you want to see a bitter black man get a baby and refuse to kill it and see how hated you are for 19 years they will pay child support and still abandon the child out of bitterness and some of them will go as far as threating to kill you , its a serious epidemic bought on by this same igorant comment below mine . ., men talking bout a child to carry their name … who cares if your the last of the johnson men? the world has much more crisis to attend to better be trying to keep a job and stay away from getting a bunch of babies you aint trying to have for god sake WHY THE? FU.CK DO MEN SHOOT SPERM UP IN A WOMAN THEN TURN AROUND ND SAY I DONT WANT NO BABY? or they know black women dont take birth control like white girls do…. so they should know you cant trust the bi…tch but yet these yong boys are trapped and the older men over 24 is just stupid … this is why the courts are so hard on black men young white men dont and rarely will go out get some young girl pregnant , hey do condom or nothing black men will thirst after sex and beg and beg you to let them ejaculated inside and if your just weak or dont care bout disease or you got 3 kids alread and could use extra child support income you will do it . these black women need to be held up to responsibility too . they get to skate with a new check . and some of the daddies aint paying nothing and cant even be found for the blood test remember maury povich show? that was when we firest realized how crazy these women were getting they had 3 or 9 prospects .. so can you imagine on the streets how displaced a man who has fathered a kid can be they will never admitt they sex a woman they even avoid giving her their last names , or where their moma live etc .. its a big ole sick game the female knows it and the male play it .. and the court are strick now the demand you give them names so they can send out letters of demand .. . the women try despratedly to find out where the man work by soliciting his friends and family to find the man .. is a gammmmme . . the baby moma wins cps is called next and its ANOTHER GAME OF SEE WHO CAN DESTROY A KIDS LIFE ..

      Here is a simple answer to your rant.

      BLACK WOMEN, stop having babies with Black men not interested in being a father, or out-of-wedlock.

      Drops MIC…

    you notice a black man will be told he got a kid on the way .creep up to the delivery room look at the kid smile , and dout over the baby and disappear for the next year lol .. never to be caught he will hear through friends she is looking for him but he will run until those people catch up with him through a job or his momas mail box lol .. its reallly a gammmme . i feel sorry for the kid because he was not concieved out of love its usuall lust and wild sex ,or a booty call then hes abandoned and dont let CPS get involved .. usually that happens when a mother is crazy or the mother is dead beat or irresponsible but the father still want step in so its comes down to black men have a dam fear of raising their own kids . its scary and where fo they get that from
