What a heartbreaking time for Elizabeth Gilbert.
On Friday, Elizabeth made the sad announcement that she plans to divorce her husband Jose Nunes after ten years of marriage.
What's especially sad about this situation is that Jose was the inspiration for the character Felipe in Eat, Pray, Love — the incredible man Elizabeth's character meets in Bali after divorcing her first husband. The romantic scenario EXACTLY mirrored the author's real life and many fans thought the blonde had stumbled upon a perfect fairytale.
Unfortunately, things did not work out for E.G. like she had planned due to "very personal reasons". Check out the writer's disappointed post (below):
