Sia has announced that she and her husband of two years have separated. The singer-songwriter tied the knot with Erik Anders Lang in 2014 and kept much of the relationship from public view. According to his IMDb page, Lang works as a producer on various films and documentary programs. The private and camera-shy Australian pop star released a statement to say the split is amicable.
“After much soul searching and consideration we have made the decision to separate as a couple,” the pair told People. “We are, however, dedicated to remaining friends. There will be no further comment.”
The magazine (rather nosily) reports that the couple were last pictured together in February.
Sia has toured the world and topped charts in 2016 with her album This Is Acting, earning three GRAMMY nominations and her first number-one song with “Cheap Thrills.” Despite the personal setback, she has a strong track record for turning heartbreak into triumphant pop music.
