The couple confirmed the news in a joint statement, saying “We are in the process of divorce. Our mutual respect for one another remains. We wish each other the best and will always appreciate our time together. As we navigate this personal matter, we simply request privacy during this time.”

Fans first sensed trouble when Yazdi disappeared from Instagram, later reactivating her account without Brown’s last name in her bio. The model also unfollowed the singer and deleted all previous posts with him. So what went wrong in this whirlwind romance? Let’s take a closer look at Zac Brown’s relationships past and present.

The Secret Ceremony

Zac Brown, 45, and Kelly Yazdi, 31, exchanged vows on August 31, 2022 at their farm in Coweta County, GA. The ceremony was kept under wraps, only coming to light when wedding photos leaked showing the bride in a Galia Lahav gown.

Guests later shared that the wedding was held at Brown’s farm with food trucks and fun entertainment like ax throwing.The couple had met years earlier when Yazdi appeared in a music video for Brown’s band, Zac Brown Band.

They began dating sometime around 2020 before Brown popped the question in Hawaii in 2021. The 14-year age gap didn’t faze them, nor did Brown’s high profile career with 5 kids from a previous marriage.

A Doomed Marriage

Given the covert nature of their nuptials, Brown and Yazdi clearly valued their privacy. But just one month after wedding, cracks began to show at Brown’s October concert in Los Angeles. He was spotted without his ring, telling fans he was “back on the market.”

While Brown claimed it was just a joke, Yazdi raised eyebrows after scrubbing all traces of their relationship from social media. By late December, the couple formally announced their impending divorce through a rep.

So why couldn’t these two make it work? Sources cite the age difference being a factor, as well as Brown’s crazy schedule touring with his band. His struggle with alcohol abuse also reportedly caused marital strife.

Whatever caused the breakup, it’s clear Brown dove into this marriage too quickly. Just 4 years prior, he was ending his 12-year union with ex-wife Shelly Brown, with whom he shares 5 kids.

Split From Shelly Brown

Before Kelly Yazdi, Zac’s longtime partner was Shelly Brown, whom he wed in 2006. The two were high school sweethearts and Shelly was by his side as Zac Brown Band shot to fame. They ultimately decided to part ways in 2018, issuing a joint statement reading:

We feel blessed to be on such an incredible journey in life, and sometimes the journey begins to lead in different directions. It is with deep love and respect that we announce we are separating as a couple. While life will be rearranging a bit, our love and commitment to our family will always be there.

The divorce filing cited their careers pulling them in “different directions.” Brown was constantly traveling and recording music, while Shelly ran the couple’s philanthropic passions like Camp Southern Ground.

The two put their kids first, committing to co-parent their 5 children even after the split. There did not appear to be any ill will between the exes. Brown told People he “[still] adores his wife” and vouched for her amazing mothering.

The Path Ahead

As Zac Brown picks up the pieces from his second failed marriage, sources say he is determined to keep things amicable with Yazdi. The two had a prenup in place so the separation should move smoothly. And without children involved, they can likely make a clean break.

Brown appears eager to put this chapter behind him and refocus on his career. The Zac Brown Band is set to release their 8th studio album ‘The Comeback‘ in 2023. They’ll also be hitting the road on a massive U.S. tour.

As for the unlucky-in-love musician’s romantic future, Brown may want to slow down. Two back-to-back short marriages suggest he still has lessons to learn. The country crooner would be wise to take time for self-reflection and personal growth before rushing into another relationship.

At age 45, Zac Brown hopefully has gained perspective from his broken unions. With maturity and patience, there still may be hope for this previously commitment-shy star to find a partner for the long haul. For now, Brown’s main priorities should be his music and those five kids from his first marriage.
