If you’ve been following the ups and downs of Ben Cohen’s love life over the past year, you’ll know that it’s been dramatic enough to rival any soap storyline. Since his appearance on Strictly Come Dancing, and the revelation that he has been dating his dance partner, Kristina Rihanoff, the details of his love life have played out in the media.
His ex-wife, Abby, has taken to twitter to blast Kristina for her role in the disintegration of her marriage, and described the split and resultant divorce as ‘the most traumatic thing to ever happen to me’.
Speaking in August, she told The Sun: “My husband, who I was with for 23 years, unconditionally loved and was completely loyal to in every respect, has left me for a f***ing Russian dancer.”
Kristina went on to announce, live on Celebrity Big Brother, that she was expecting Ben’s child. Ben already has twin daughters from his marriage to Abby. Now, in the latest instalment to the saga, Ben Cohen has finalised his divorce from his ex-wife Abby, but she is trying to hold her head up high. She commented, “If it wasn’t for that woman, me and Ben would still be married. But I don’t want to talk about being the ditched wife. I wish him well with his new family.”
