Jacklyn and Jon Hill were married in August 2009. After almost 9 years of marriage, the couple announced their divorce on May 16, 2018. The couple frequently made YouTube videos that appeared on the makeup mogul’s channel. Announcing the divorce, Jaclyn stated on social media that she and Jon were divorcing, saying that while they didn’t work as husband and wife, they “always made good friends.” Jaclyn continued using Jon’s last name professionally after their split and occasionally voiced support for her former husband as he faced drug addiction.
After her divorce, Jaclyn began dating her current boyfriend, Jordan Torrey (who publicly goes by the name “Jordan Farnum”). This relationship sparked controversy, as Jon Hill and Farnum were known to have previously worked together. In December 2021, Jordan and Jaclyn became engaged.
Jaclyn Hill was Jon Hill Divorce was a Result of Hill’s Drug Addiction
Throughout their marriage, Jon’s struggled with drug abuse. He, at some point, spoke about his addiction. In 2019, in an interview with Billboard, he revealed that he first tried prescription pills at 17 and had struggled with addiction since.
“During our third year of marriage, it got to a point where I was having seizures because I was on so much stuff,” Jon told Billboard at the time. “I started breaking out in hives. So it became noticeable that something was wrong.”
He said that he eventually got clean but that Jaclyn “decided she didn’t want to” be with him anymore.
Jaclyn shared her ex-husband’s drug abuse in a post on Jan 14, 2021, where she stated the hardships social media influencers face. She asked people to pray for Jon Hill, stating that they were best friends starting at 15 years old before their marriage. Jaclyn further said that Hill was open with his addiction, something most influencers reserve for themselves.
It’s so hard to be a “social media influencer” and know when to talk about things & when not to. But please send prayers to Jon Hill. He was my best friend starting at 15 years old. He has been open about his addiction & he needs your prayers.
