Dan Reynolds, the frontman for the rock band Imagine Dragons, and his wife, Aja Volkman, are getting a divorce.
Reynolds tweeted the announcement Thursday morning:
“after 7 beautiful years together, Aja and I’s marriage has come to an end. Our children continue to be the most important thing in our lives, & we will continue to co-parent them with all our love.”
In a second tweet, Reynolds asked “that you please respect our privacy at this time as we work through this as a family.”
Reynolds, who turns 31 in July, was raised in Las Vegas as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and attended Brigham Young University. While in Utah, he and his friends formed Imagine Dragons, which was a staple on the Provo club scene before going big nationally and internationally.
Volkman, who is four months older than Reynolds, is also a singer, songwriter and musician, and has been a member of the alt-rock band Nico Vega.
In the documentary “Believer,” which premiered at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival and will air on HBO in June, Volkman talks about how she and Reynolds met and fell in love, and how she converted to Mormonism so they could marry.
The couple have three daughters: Arrow Eve, age 5, and 1-year-old twins Gia James and Coco Rae.
Volkman performed the opening song at the inaugural LoveLoud Festival, a music event spearheaded by Reynolds and Neon Trees lead singer Tyler Glenn to foster support for Mormon LGBTQ teens. Imagine Dragons and Neon Trees co-headlined the event in Orem’s Brent Brown Ballpark.
The second annual LoveLoud Festival, featuring Imagine Dragons and Glenn performing solo, is set for July 28 at Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City.
