Ali Wong And Justin Hakuta  Divorce

Ali Wong and Justin Hakuta have decided to divorce after eight years of marriage.

On Wednesday, the 39-year-old comedian’s representative confirmed the news (13 April).

After dating for several years, the pair married in November 2014 at San Francisco City Hall. Mari and Nikki are their daughters.

Wong discussed her marriage during an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in 2019. “I got married at City Hall because I didn’t want a formal wedding,” she explained. “As a stand-up comic, I was thinking, ‘I don’t want to walk down the aisle for 60 seconds while people stare at me in silence.’ That would give me PTSD.”

Wong discussed how Hakuta’s family coerced her into signing a prenup during her 2018 Netflix special Hard Knock Wife.

Revert to drinking plain water, you b*tch!”

According to a source speaking to People, Wong and Hakuta “will continue to co-parent lovingly” following their divorce.
