Imagine Dragons' Dan Reynolds Splits From Wife


Imagine Dragons frontman Dan Reynolds announced Thursday that he and his wife have separated.

"After 7 beautiful years together, Aja and I's marriage has come to an end," he tweeted. "Our children continue to be the most important thing in our lives, & we will continue to co-parent them with all our love.

"I ask that you please respect our privacy at this time as we work through this as a family."

Reynolds, 30, married Aja Volkman in March 2011 and the couple has daughter Arrow, 5, and one-year-old twin daughters Gia and Coco.

The pair met when an up-and-coming Imagine Dragons opened for Volkman's band Nico Vega. "I was kind of at a place in my life where I thought, 'This guy is so cute, but I’m not really interested in meeting anybody right now.' But we really just fell in love, and about a year later we ended up getting married and then we had a baby," she told Las Vegas Weekly in 2013.

He has been outspoken about his struggle with depression and other medical issues, including the autoimmune disease Ankylosing Spondylitis.

Earlier this year, Reynolds told NPR that his relationship with his Mormon family has been strained since he became an advocate for LGBT equality.
