In her first ESSENCE solo cover interview, Meagan Good opens up about her divorce from DeVon Franklin and the challenges she faced as a result of the fallout. She said, “It's nothing that I would have ever chosen, and when I realized that it was happening, I was devastated. I was like, This is me, Lord. I did everything that I could do to the best of my ability. I don't understand why I did all these things, and then this is my end result.”
She expressed that she still views DeVon as an amazing and lovely individual. She confirmed that neither of them had any malicious intent towards each other.
Recounting her difficult phase, she said, "I struggled with that. I was like, I don't know if I should be celibate now. I don't know what I should do.' I even was at a point early on when I felt, obviously, I still believe in Jesus, but I'm not sure what to believe about anything else anymore."
According to her, the divorce was particularly challenging because she didn't want to replicate her parents' experience. Her parents had also separated after being married for a decade. She said, “That was rough because my biggest fear was what happened between my mom and my dad would happen to me, which is you've been with your husband for 10 years and you break up.”
