'The Talk's Aisha Tyler Breaks Down Discussing Divorce For First Time

On Monday's episode of 'The Talk', Aisha Tyler spoke candidly about the decision to divorce her husband of more than 20 years.

However, Tyler teared up and broke down almost immediately as she tried to explain why they were going their separate ways.

"My husband and I are separating... that's a very painful thing to go through and it's also a really painful thing to go through in public," she said.

"I'm sure you can imagine it's pretty frustrating to have people talking about your private life who don't know anything about it and speculating and you know saying lots of crazy stuff but I wanted to say this... my husband and I met when I was a teenager and I've been with him for more than half of my adult life."

"He's the person who has influenced me and cared for me the most. In fact, he cared for me even longer than my parents have cared for me and it's very hard when you love someone very much to also start to realize that maybe you want different things for your lives," she explained.

"That's a very difficult realization to come to and you don't want to accept it and you don't want to believe it. I don't, not in any way see this relationship as a failure."

"I was with this extraordinary person. I had this extraordinary love affair for 25 years of my life and that is how I feel. We loved each other passionately and we lived life fully and we're trying to let each other go in the kindest way we possibly can."

"He's a wonderful person. He's been my best friend for always my entire life. I'll always love him. I want to say to people out there that are speculating about it, that's what I'm going to say about the relationship and the rest of it is none of your damn business."
