Us previously broke the news in September 2018 that the twosome tied the knot, two years after welcoming son Christopher Jr.

“One of the things I love about Lili is she doesn’t want the attention, it’s just about me and her,” the nine-time champ told Us at the time. “I appreciate that because I’ve been doing this for so long I have a different appreciation for privacy. Her and CJ, they’re like my sanctuary in my own little world.”

He added: “But moving forward, I’m so proud of these times of my life I want to share them with everybody. And Lili wants to come out of hiding, too.”

As Tamburello and Solares, 30, continued raising their now-6-year-old son, their relationship hit a snag as he went to compete on The Challenge: Double Agents.

“The last few seasons I wasn’t in the best place mentally. Marriage was not going well,” the New York native said in a December 2020 episode. “We’re separated, and I feel like I’ve been running from problems for a long time. I feel like they finally caught up with me. I couldn’t lie to myself anymore.”

Without further addressing the nature of their separation, Tamburello admitted at the time that he was ready to dive back into The Challenge — “focused on myself” and “getting my head right.”

“Hey guys, quick PSA about my post from last night, I love my wife, we’re not breaking up. I’m sorry if I misled some of you into believing that we were breaking up, that was not my intention,” he captioned a January Instagram post, referring to a cryptic video he shared earlier that day that featured Halsey’s “Without Me” breakup song. “I’m away filming and we were in between scenes, I was listening to some music and I like that song, I like that remix, so I figured I’d post it why now and didn’t think anything of it.”

Neither Tamburello nor Solares have further addressed their divorce or custody arrangement.
