Despite battling the despair brought about by the recent death of her biological mother, 2014 is shaping up for comedienne Ai-Ai de las Alas as she announced that her divorce from Jed Salang was finally official.
“Divorce decree now issued. I just checked the LV (Las Vegas) court website,” said the actress via a 15-second Instagram video post last January 12 which even had ‘80s band Kool and The Gang’s hit “Celebration” playing in the background.
While she didn’t reveal when she exactly learned about the court decision, Ai-Ai didn’t mask her happiness as seen in the video’s caption. “100% SINGLE #movingon #movingforward #thankyoulord #happiness #2014pasabog #gandangpanimula,” wrote the 49-year-old Kapamilya actress.
It was almost eight months ago when a sobbing Ai-Ai divulged on national TV that her supposed happy married life turned into a nightmare after allegedly suffering from physical abuse from her then husband.
The two exchanged I dos in civil wedding rites in Las Vegas in April 2 last year.
Ai-Ai’s followers seemingly shared in her delight on the news as one follower even commented, “Congrats Ms. Ai, focus na lang po muna kayo sa work may darating na right guy po sa inyo in right time. Gob bless po sa iyo at sa family mo.”
“Im sure marami ng nabuhayan ng pag-asa. I wish u all the best Ms @aiaide lasalas. ♥♥♥” another follower remarked.
In past interviews, Ai-Ai had been adamant in saying that she’s not very keen on dating again.
