Celebrity dancer Cheryl Burke has confirmed reports that she and husband Matthew Lawrence are going their separate ways.

In a post on her official Instagram account, Burke, known for her work on “Dancing With the Stars,” asked for “understanding and privacy” as she deals with this personal issue.

“I know I have always said that I’m an open book with you guys, I do strive to be, and in writing this I’ve realized there isn’t really an easy way to announce that my marriage is ending,” she wrote. “I hope you can understand that I will not be commenting any further at this time and am asking for understanding and privacy.”

She also thanked her fans for “all the kind words & support you’ve given me.”

In addition to her television work, Burke hosts a podcast.
