The actor shut down speculation surrounding what went wrong in his relationship with Tia after the Sister, Sister alum shared on Oct. 4 that the two had "decided to go our separate ways" after 14 years of marriage. When a social media user commented on Cory's Instagram page, suggesting that he "cheated on her," the 42-year-old wrote back, "Lies!"
Cory's initial post—which showed the star sitting on a chair while tossing a baseball—was shared on Oct. 3, before news of the breakup broke. At the time, Tia had commented with an emoji of a flexing arm.
In her statement announcing their split, Tia shared that their decision to separate was made "not without sadness."
"We will maintain a friendship as we co-parent our beautiful children," she wrote on Instagram. "I am grateful for all the happy times we had together and want to thank my friends, family and fans for your love and support as we start this new chapter moving forward in our lives."
In divorce papers filed on Oct. 3 and obtained by E! News, Tia cited "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for separation. She also requested legal and physical joint custody of their two children and has asked to terminate the court's ability to award spousal support, citing a premarital agreement.
