“This dinner was supposed to celebrate him getting his visa! Robert has planted the seed so deep in my mind for so long that he hates restaurant proposals so I never, EVER, saw this coming,” said Mia Khalifa.

“We can confidently say we have it out all in making our marriage work but after almost a year of therapy and efforts we are walking away knowing we have a friend in each other, and that we truly tried.”
The webcam model further said they “will always love and respect each other” because they “know that not one isolated incident caused the split, but rather, a culmination of unresolvable, fundamental differences that no one can blame the other for.”
What’s more, Khalifa later in her Instagram story said she doesn’t know what to tell if people have already booked a flight to her wedding. She hoped her friends bought trip insurance as well.
