Celebrity Big Brother hunk Austin Armacost files for DIVORCE from ex Jake Lees [Austin Armacost]
Austin Armacost tied the knot with the Huddersfield born Brit back in 2008, after meeting in Indianapolis. Austin then moved to the UK after the pair dated for nine months, falling head over heels in love.
The duo later fought for gay rights together in the USA, fighting for the repeal of the Defense Of Marriage Act. They married shortly after in Chicago.
But speaking exclusively to OK! Online, it’s been revealed that following the duo’s amicable split last year, the pair are finally getting a divorce after being apart for months.

Speaking exclusively to OK! Online, Austin said: “Jake and I had a good relationship for almost a decade.
“He was there for me through a lot of loss in 2013 – my brother dying – and my mum, who was sentenced to 6 years in prison.
“But in the end, we just were no longer compatible.”

Austin, who is on Twitter as @austinarmacost, added: “Your mindset at 20 is so much different than your mindset at 30, we just drifted apart. I wish him all the happiness in the world.”
Austin has now moved on to boyfriend Darren Banks, with the pair recently celebrating their one year anniversary together.
They grew even closer after Austin entered the Celebrity Big Brother house, and are now happier than ever.

He added: “Darren is an amazing man. He makes me a better person every day. He has compassion & understanding I’ve never seen before. He makes me laugh, work hard, and enjoy life. I don’t think it will be long until I become his husband.
“We spoke at lengths in the very beginning of our relationship about the big things that can be deal breakers: children, marriage, etc. So we knew from the start we were on the same page with where we saw our futures going”
