Trouble in Piana-Paradise, unfortunately. When Rich and his wife got married, the wedding made all sorts of major media outlets. It was one of the biggest weddings in gym history. They had been together for about a year, but in bodybuilder years that’s a solid 2.5 year run.
We don’t really know any details yet, but it’s safe to assume that Rich is going to be getting hit up for a decent amount of cash in the divorce. He’s done really well for himself, not everybody can translate mass into cash.
Divorces can get really messy and bring out the worst in people. They can end up taking years out of both people’s lives, and probabally taking years off of their lives from the stress, too.
Here’s Rich’s official statement:
“I believe the time has come to announce that @sara.piana and I are no longer together. It was a crazy wonderful#livinthedream more than anyone could imagine year together!! A fairytale life but we do have our differences as all couples do and we both decided together that this was the best scenario! We are still friends and both agree this is the best choice for us. I felt it necessary to announce this on social media because we were together 24/7 so as soon as anyone sees us not together the first question is “where’s Sara” about 20 people asked me that very question today at the gym and when I say we are no longer together it’s a 20min conversation. Whatever happens in life you have to be strong and keep pushing forward and Sara is a very strong girl and we will both keep pushing forward and being the best we can be in every aspect of life!”
Hang in there, buddy. As long as they’re able to handle this themselves like adults, things should be fine. It sounds like they’re still on good enough terms, at least for people who are in the middle of a divorce, but as soon as the lawyers get in there things always seem to get messy.
If you handle it yourself, you can come up with something that makes both parties happy, but lawyers have a way of extracting as much money as possible.
When both sides have a lawyer in a divorce, the lawyers like to manipulate their clients in order to drag things on as long as possible, and at the end of the day everybody ends up with a lot less money… besdies the lawyers.
This is probabally a tough time for our boy Rich, so we put together a little something…
Our tribute to Rich coming up next:
What better way to show Richy some support besdies showing off what a beast he is? Here are some pictures of Rich being a boss, because we can’t think of anything he’d appreciate more right now.
