We want to publicly state - plainly, and only this time - that we are splitting up. We also feel it's important to state that we are going to be okay and in fact, we remain close friends who are good in each other's eyes. That's something we are deeply thankful for. Even though situations like these can feel defeating. We will continue to encourage and support each other personally and professionally." Williams and Gilbert got engaged in December 2014 after dating for several years and got married in February 2016 at the Franklin Theater in Nashville. (ANI)
