After four years of marriage, Yolanda Foster and David Foster announced they are getting divorced. Now sources are saying that Yolanda’s struggles with Lyme disease put a lot of stress on their marriage.
A source explained:
Things really changed in their relationship as Yolanda got sick, and then when her health worsened. David travels all the time and they simply weren’t spending any time together.
“They just grew apart and the intense stress over her health and the disease was very hard on their marriage.”
Another source said:
David is always off traveling the world for work and Yolanda’s entire life has become her bedroom. She has basically been sick since they first got married. It definitely took a huge toll on the marriage.”
Someone else added:
She just felt he wasn’t there for him (sic) when she needed him most and he felt the same. It’s so sad but the illness really did come between them.”
So much for “in sickness and in health,” huh? Well, there’s no question illness can be tough for couples.
Yolanda’s struggle with Lyme disease got so bad that, at one point, she lost the ability to read and write. She was diagnosed in 2012, and she and David married in November 2011, so they hadn’t even been married long when her health problems started. This was Yolanda’s fourth marriage.
