Stern filed for divorce on April 9 and cited irreconcilable differences as the reason.
Cleary’s rep told E News:
Katie and Andrew have been separated and in the process of finalizing their divorce for a few months and her relationship with Leonardo and Adrian were simply platonic as she was there to promote her animal welfare documentary Give Me Shelter. We respectfully request her privacy be given at this difficult time and have no more comments on this matter.
Sources told TMZ that Sherman was distraught over marital problems.
A friend, Pace Lattin, wrote an obituary for him, which included some insights into his personal life:
I am in shock at the death of one of my oldest friends in the business Andrew Stern. We had a love/hate relationship for years and always gave each other a hard time. He always gave me a hard time for “stealing” his girlfriend Heidi Liddell (who ended up marrying Chuck Liddell) even though I never had a romantic relationship with her. It was a running joke between us.
After he was on the Millionaire Matchmaker show, I always gave him a hard time about that — until he found the love of his life and married her.
However, Cleary did post this tweet, wishing her husband a happy 40th birthday in February:
