Paramore's Hayley Williams Splits from Husband Chad Gilbert

Hayley Williams has announced that she and her husband, New Found Glory guitarist Chad Gilbert, are splitting up.

The 28-year-old Paramore singer released a joint statement from her and Chad on Instagram.

“So much more goes into putting a statement together than anyone will ever see. There’s real life behind these black and white words. Sleepless nights and procrastination and sadness and fear… Unfortunately, it all ends up looking the same. Like some publicity crap,” the couple started off the statement.

“The two of us have been together for the better part of 10 years. We’ve grown up together and we’ve been beside each other through a lot of goodness and a lot of challenges. There is a challenge to trying to understand your own heart in the context of a relationship… and there is goodness in considering another heart, even in spite of your own. Marriage is not for the faint of heart. Love is an absolute risk. And it’s up to each of us to stay hopeful even when the outcome isn’t what we’d originally hoped for,” they continued.

Hayley Williams Talks About That Time She Quit Paramore

Hayley Williams looks pretty in patterns on the cover of The Fader.

Here’s what the 28-year-old Paramore singer had to share with the mag:

On dealing with depression: “Man, I don’t know. I don’t feel as hopeful as I did as a teenager…For the first time in my life, there wasn’t a pinhole of light at the end of the tunnel. I thought, I just wish everything would stop. It wasn’t in the sense of, I’m going to take my life. It was just hopelessness. Like, What’s the point? I don’t think I understood how dangerous hopelessness is. Everything hurts.”

On her brief departure from Paramore in 2015: “I just was done. I thought, ‘There’s gotta be something else that I’m good at in my life. Maybe it’s time for me to go find that.”

On the possibility of mainstream solo stardom: “It’s just not what I want. I don’t know if I would be able to face thousands of people if I couldn’t look to my left and my right and behind me and realize that I’m surrounded by people who know exactly who I am.”
