Branch published a tweet on Thursday, which she has since deleted, in which she accused her husband, who is the drummer for the Black Keys, of cheating on her. Later that day, she delivered an emotional statement in which she announced that she and her husband were no longer together.

In a statement that was distributed to several media sites, Branch said, “To say that I am completely crushed isn’t even close to articulating how I feel for myself and for my family.”

She continued by saying, “The rug has been completely ripped out from beneath me, and now I need to figure out how to move on.” “Because these children are so young, I beg that you respect our privacy and be kind.”

The pair tied the knot in 2019 and currently have two children together: Rhys James Carney, who is 4 years old, and Willie Jacquet Carney, who is 6 months old.
