Hough and Inaba, 52, worked together on “Dancing with the Stars,” when Hough was a pro dancer and Inaba served as a judge before Hough eventually took up judging responsibilities for a few seasons as well.
During a recent chat with Entertainment Tonight, Inaba offered some kind words for Hough, noting that “relationships go up and down.”
“You have to follow your heart because life is once, that we remember, and it’s so hard to be married in the spotlight and then break up,” she said. “I wasn’t even married and it was so hard to break up with my exes, so I get that.”
Inaba concluded: “All I want to say to Julianne is that I love you and I support you. Anything you need, I’m right here. I’m your sister, always. Judges sisters!”
“We have lovingly and carefully taken the time we have needed to arrive at our decision to separate,” they said in a joint statement. “We share an abundance of love and respect for one another and will continue to lead with our hearts from that place. We kindly request your compassion and respect for our privacy moving forward.”
