J.P. Rosenbaum talks divorce from Ashley
US Weekly caught up with J.P. Rosenbaum just days after his ex-wife Ashley Hebert introduced her boyfriend to the world. He spoke of their divorce and noted that there was nothing dramatic about their split. He said there was no infidelity or drama. It just wasn’t working for them anymore.
J.P. also said they were a little anxious about sharing the news of their split with the world. He said, “I’d say there was a little bit of anxiety.” J.P. continued, “I mean, for us, it had been ongoing for longer than, obviously, people knew about. The post, the notification to the rest of the world — it was just a formality for us.”
The 45-year-old said he has no regrets about their time together. They did find love and they have two beautiful children to show for it. Ashley and J.P. share a son Fordham, 7, and a daughter Essex, 5.
J.P. shared that he has not met Ashley’s new boyfriend yet. However, he does know of him and he’s happy for her. He said, “She’s living her life and if she’s happy that’s what matters.”
What are his thoughts on dating?
J.P. is still single following his divorce from Ashley. While he isn’t opposed to dating, he noted that it’s very different these days. He said, “It’s weird. Dating in my mid-forties as a divorced father of two is just way different than dating, you know, single in my early thirties.” J.P. continued, “And especially now with all the apps and it’s strange, but I think you kind of get used to it. I would still prefer for it to happen organically and through a friend, but that’s not the world we live in right now.”
It’s going slow but J.P. did note he’s trying to figure it all out. Since he’s not from Miami he said all his old buddies are in New York. He said he has friends in Florida but most are married with kids. J.P. also said he has tried dating apps and has been out with a few nice women. However, overall, he hasn’t found what he’s looking for yet.
He also said it’s ridiculous to have a checklist of qualities a woman must-have for him to date her. Why? Because J.P. feels someone can check all the boxes but there may not be any chemistry between them.
He knows the feeling he is looking for and he can sense pretty early on if it’s there or not. Life experience has taught him what he needs to know about connections.
What do you think about J.P. still being single?
