Fans may be understandably sad and surprised to hear that The Umbrella Academy star Elliot Page and wife Emma Portner are getting a divorce, since they have never seemed anything but totally in love.

Elliot and Emma have been together since 2017, and they Wednesday in a secret ceremony in early 2018.

Court documents filed in the Manhattan Supreme Court show the Juno actor filed for a contested divorce, meaning the involved parties don't agree on the terms of the divorce, on January 26. On Tuesday, People reported that the 33-year-old actor filed for divorce from the choreographer.

"I can't begin to express how remarkable it feels to finally love who I am enough to pursue my authentic self. Thank you for your courage, your generosity and ceaselessly working to make this world a more inclusive and compassionate place".

But Emma Porter appeared to have deleted her Instagram shortly after she sparred with transphobic trolls who sought to challenge their relationship. "I am so proud of @elliotpage", she wrote on Instagram.

'From the bottom of my heart, thank you, ' Elliot wrote, while sharing an image of themselves posing in a black hoodie and wire-framed glasses. To all trans people who deal with harassment, self-loathing, abuse and the threat of violence every day: I see you, I love you and I will do everything I can to change this world for the better. Shine on sweet E. Love you so much'. "I am as fluid as can be".

Despite removing images of Elliot from her Instagram, Emma still has a copy of the actor's coming out statement posted on her account, along with the statement of support and pride she shared at the time it was released.
