Nelly Furtado and her husband Demacio Castellon have parted ways after eight years of marriage, Entertainment Tonight reports.
"Nelly is out of the country promoting her new album, but on her behalf, I can confirm the news is true, and Nelly has been and is in great spirits personally and professionally," her rep tells ET. "She is currently in the U.K. and Germany promoting her new album."
The 38-year-old singer appeared on ITV’s Loose Women on Wednesday and revealed the couple split last summer.
"I am single now," Furtado said. "Someone here needs to update my Wikipedia -- it's not helping my dating life!"
"I went through an emotionally difficult time last summer and I actually wrote and sung myself songs to get through it," she continued. "I was going through a breakup, and I would sing to myself while I drove on these long drives and I thought to myself, ‘I’m so lucky that I can write songs because I can soothe myself with them.'"
Furtado, who has a 13-year-old daughter from a previous relationship, has been spending her downtime trying to find her new normal.
"Sometimes you just want to sit home and bake muffins for your daughter, clean my toilet, having a moment to yourself," she confessed. "It’s great to have your career take off and have those blessings, but if you don’t have that time, when you give and give, you crash."
"I need to stay emotionally and physically well for my daughter," she added.
