DeVon Franklin is detailing his healing process after his divorce from Meagan Good.
Franklin, producer and author, was married to the actress for nine years after meeting on the "Jumping the Broom" set before announcing their divorce in December 2021. The couple's split was then finalized in June of 2022.
During an appearance on the Tamron Hall Show on June 8 Franklin spoke of his healing process after his divorce from Good and also his new film "Flamin' Hot," which details the life of the creator of Flamin' Hot Cheetos, Richard Montañez.
Franklin addressed his transparency around sharing details of his marriage before the divorce. “What happens with life when we regret; we're looking through the rearview. So there's no regret. It's like, okay, every step led me here. And so everything that I shared, I shared in truth at that time. And certainly, I think sometimes I'm glad we don't know the future, because it impacts how we live the present. And so you know those moments that we shared in the present were honest and true moments, and this moment is an honest and true moment and so I tend not to live in regret.”
The producer spoke of the advice he gave himself and also his healing process. " So I first had to say ‘Devon I love you. You're going to be okay. You're right where you need to be. You're going to get through this.’ And I really tried not to worry about anybody else but just focus on the healing process, right, and committing to that because no matter what, that pain is a teacher. So instead of me trying to push through it, I really had to sit in that pain and say ‘okay well how did I get here?’
On Thursday, Franklin appeared on “The Breakfast Club” podcast, where he spoke about the feelings he’s experienced since the divorce year ago. “It's like you're used to being with somebody, just on a friendship level everyday, and then you're like, ‘I don't even talk to this person’. It is the strangest, most difficult thing to navigate and the only thing I can offer is to take it one moment at a time–not even a day at a time–a moment.”
Good has also spoken out publicly about the divorce. The couple made a joint statement to PEOPLE, saying “There's no one at fault, we believe this is the next best chapter in the evolution of our love.”
