“Property Brothers” star Jonathan Scott has long been quiet about his past divorce, but now that he is in a serious relationship, the HGTV celeb is ready to speak out.
Scott revealed to People Magazine that he married an airline-crew scheduler named Kelsey back in 2007, but the marriage crumbled after just two years.
“There was sort of a rush going into it,” Jonathan told People. “She wanted to get married on 07/07/07 . . . so it wasn’t something that naturally happened.”
He said he learned a lot from his divorce.
“I think that one of the biggest things I learned is that you can have two good people who are just not good for each other.”
Scott said his breakup has allowed him to advise his friends “who are having difficult situations.”
He revealed to People he moved from Canada to Las Vegas when he got married, but the pair quickly realized the union wasn’t working out.
“I’m glad that we found that out early,” he said. “You know, we didn’t have kids or anything. And it really helped me understand what I wanted in a relationship.”
Scott, 38, is now happily dating Jacinta Kuznetsov, 28.
“I don’t think I would be in the position where I am now if I didn’t have the experiences I’ve had the past,” he told People.
His brother and co-star Drew Scott is currently engaged to Linda Phan.
