1000-Lb Sisters star Amy Slaton is back on the market after her soon-to-be ex-husband Michael Halterman filed for divorce. Amy and Michael have been consistent figures on 1000-Lb Sisters throughout the show. Their wedding was featured on the season 1, and subsequent seasons have shown the birth of their sons, Gage and Glenn, alongside Amy’s progress in her weight loss and health journey. With Michael having been there throughout Amy’s weight loss surgery and difficult times with her sister, the dissolution of their marriage may come as a surprise to some.
According to In Touch, 1000-Lb Sisters’ Michael Halterman “filed for dissolution of marriage with children against Amy…on March 13, according to Kentucky court records,” after nearly four years of marriage. Michael, who has been frequently featured on the show with Amy, has been scrutinized on 1000-Lb Sisters season 4. Rumors about the couple potentially splitting up have been running rampant as the season has continued on, especially with the light the couple has been painted in. Though the pair may already be living separately, their divorce proceedings have only just begun and will likely be documented in the second half of 1000-Lb Sisters season 4.
Michael Filed For Divorce After His Attitude Was Showcased On Screen
Michael filed for divorce on March 13, but his behavior has been in question for months after being displayed on 1000-Lb Sisters season 4. The season has been difficult for Amy and Michael, as they’ve been attempting to navigate having two children while balancing the drama surrounding the Slaton family. After welcoming their son Glenn in November 2022, Amy made it clear that having two sons was a lot more difficult than having just one. When 1000-Lb Sisters season 4 premiered in January 2023, it was clear that things had become tense between Amy and Michael.
Michael had COVID-19 after Glenn was born in 2022, which Amy had a hard time with as she tried to adjust to parenting two sons on her own. After he recovered, it was clear that Michael was potentially just an off-hand parent, as he was rarely helping with their children and often shown on the sidelines, leaving the parental responsibilities to Amy. It is clear that tension has been thick between the parents as they have navigated this new part of their lives, and with little interaction or care shown between the two of them, Michael filing for divorce is the logical next step.
With 1000-lb Sisters season 4 still filming, there are undoubtedly a lot of stories left to unpack once it hits the air. Amy, who has been showing off her weight loss in recent photos, may have already moved out of the couple’s family home with their sons. With news still coming to the surface about Amy and Michael’s divorce, there is surely more to the story than meets the eye.
