The Dancing With The Stars’ Julianne Hough has filed divorce papers five months after the announcement of her separation from her husband, retired Canadian Hockey player Brooks Laich.

After their separation in May, Hough and Laich had been spotted spending time together. A source told Entertainment Tonight, “Julianne and Brooks gave it their all and finally came to the realization that they aren’t meant to be together. The extra time they spent together after their separation was needed, and they are both in a good place.”

Brooks has been especially emotional, as was revealed on his recent appearance on his and Gavin DeGraw’s podcast, How Men Think. The former hockey player described the emotional turmoil of his divorce. “I cry all the time and it’s wonderful! It’s something I’ve recently learned, since the passing of our two dogs,” said Brooks. “I’ve learned how to honor emotions in the moment and let them come up, and through me and out of me, and a lot of times, that’s through crying.”
