Their relationship was quite healthy but, as time passed and Jeff gained fame, he started spending a lot of time away working. This created a strain in the relationship eventually resulting in a divorce. Jeff filed for divorce in November of 2008, and it was finalized in 2009.
The couple was married for a massive 14 years, yet their marriage could not be saved.
However, at the end of the day, it was best for both of them, and Jeff has found the woman of his life, and we hope that Paige has found her man too.
