John Mulaney & Anna-Marie Tendler finalized their divorce this week

Vanity Fair Oscar Party Hosted By Radhika Jones - Arrivals

While John Mulaney and Anna Marie Tendler’s separation date is still being debated – even by them – we did have a firm date on when John filed for divorce. He didn’t file for divorce until late-July last year. They had “announced” their split two months prior to that, and as we now know, Mulaney had already started dating and had already impregnated his girlfriend when the May announcement of his impending divorce came out. Mulaney was eager to get the divorce finalized, even though he filed in New York and it can take a while in that state. My guess is that Anna Marie didn’t want to fight about much at this point, because it looks like their divorce has been finalized:

John Mulaney is now officially divorced … signing papers to finalize things with his ex, Anna Marie Tendler.

According to a legal filing, Mulaney and Tendler ended things Thursday in NYC — about 4 months after he filed to divorce her. The pair married in July 2014, and did not have any kids together. It’s unclear if they’d signed a prenup.

John and Tendler first split in October 2020.

The divorce agreement makes it official, but John’s already done plenty of moving on from that relationship — as TMZ first reported, Olivia Munn gave birth to the couple’s son, Malcolm Hiệp Mulaney, on November 24.

Again, “John and Tendler first split in October 2020” is his version of events. Anna Marie’s version is that she supported him through rehab and wanted to work on their marriage and that they were still dealing with stuff well into 2021. But, as I said, my guess is that Anna-Marie is done. She’s probably tired of fighting and she wants to move on. I really feel for her. It also seems like Mulaney is going to be based out of LA, and Anna-Marie will be based out of New York/Connecticut?

    She’s so pretty and stylish and way too good for him. I think she’s a bit annoying but I have no doubt she’ll thrive once she’s rid of him and that whole mess.

    • Emily says:

      I was just about to comment the same thing. She’s gorgeous.

    • teecee says:

      Everyone’s a bit annoying *shrug*. Funny how women are the only ones who get criticized for it…

      • Driver8 says:

        I find just as many, if not more famous men annoying. I have valid reasons for my irritation with her and it has nothing to do with her being a woman, geez.

  2. Chic says:

    I wonder if he will stop using her and the dog in his comedy.

  3. Oh_Hey says:

    And the timeline is even further exposed…
    I’m rooting for Anna and I’m rooting for Malcom. And only Anna and Malcom. Everyone else can take a hike.

  4. Kviby says:

    Lovely woman. Glad she won’t have to deal with him any longer. Is that her real hair?! It’s so thick considering it’s length

  5. Silver Charm says:

    I hope she got paid.

  6. Amy T says:

    I wish her love (in whatever form it exists – Petunia, family, friends, a new partner if she wants one down the line and not if she doesn’t) and all good things going forward.

  7. Lizzie says:

    What a disappointment he has been. I really enjoyed his SNL monologues and his stand up. But man, he is an idiot and I don’t know if I can ever watch him again.

    • Liz Version 700 says:

      Lizzie I feel the same way. I enjoyed him on SNL and his comedy on the web, now I can’t even bear to hear his smirky voice.

  8. Merricat says:

    I hope he maintains his sobriety and she finds success, however she defines it.

  9. L says:

    i have a huge yet still silly lady crush on anna-marie. all the best to her and wherever life takes her. i enjoy her whole thing, vibe, whatever you wanna call it. the lampshades and photography she puts out really is fantastic stuff! 🙂

    • ElleV says:

      i like her a lot too – why don’t you just say crush? why is it silly? i don’t understand the caveats

  10. AppleCart says:

    I really appreciate her post on change on a different level my boss just told me he was resigning and he is 90% of my job. So I have no idea what will happen to me and feel a huge loss right now. So reading her post about change and having to move forward really helped me. We don’t want it it but it will happen regardless if we like it or not. We just keep going.
    ” the only constant is change”

  11. Jules says:

    Waiting for the inevitable dueling instagram posts from all involved.

  12. lucy2 says:

    So much of his material is about her and their marriage. I wonder what happens in a situation like that, if there’s no prenup? Does she get a chunk of all that money he’s made off their relationship?
    Hopefully she finds peace, and I wish the baby and dog well.

    • Meg says:

      Good point.
      Reminds me of how Leanne rimes took for granted her husbands impact on her career behind the scenes, he had a huge hand in picking her singles, and she hasn’t had a hit since then.
      Part of John talking about his wife in his act was she came across well, I don’t think Olivia comes across well and their relationship seems to be hanging by a thread so I can’t see him talking about her. so confiding in his fans personal stories about his marriage made us feel closer to him yet he won’t have that to go to now so his fans won’t feel that connection which will be hard for him to substitute in his material?

    • Fabiola says:

      I listened to his comedy and I didn’t hear a lot about his wife so he does have a lot of material outside of her. He’s hilarious so I do not think he will have any problems coming up with new material.

  13. SKE says:

    I started following her in IG and she is so gorgeous and talented- definitely have a lady crush on her. Her situation has had a very interesting impact on her photography. “Dinner in March” will break your heart.

  14. MerlinsMom1018 says:

    Good lord…she is so TINY!!!!!
    gorgeous. Love her hair. Hope she lives a life full of creativity and happiness and whatever gives her bliss

    • AmyB says:

      Anna-Marie also went to rehab for treatment for an eating disorder (while John was getting help for his substance abuse addiction). Just FYI.

      I too hope she can emerge from all of this healthier and happier. One thing to go through a divorce, and deal with addiction issues (for yourself and with your partner). A whole other thing to have it played out publicly – and have him move on so quickly and get another woman pregnant. I can’t imagine that pain, no matter how toxic the relationship was. I always liked John Mulaney – his comedy. But this whole situation? Ugh…not a good look. And certainly not the behavior of someone who is taking sobriety seriously. I am not saying that he and Anna-Marie should have stayed married. Two people with serious addictions is quite a recipe for a toxic relationship, and co-dependency. And no one really knows what went on behind closed doors with them. All we do know is that he got out of rehab, and moved on quite suddenly with another woman, and they got pregnant. I know I will not be able to look at him in the same way. I hope he stays sober for the sake of his new baby, but this whole situation made me quite sad.

      • Sue Denim says:

        V well put, AmyB, and also — he has been so publicly dismissive of Anna, like she never even existed, no nod to her in the divorce announcement, no kindness or sensitivity whatsoever at least publicly in the months since, despite knowing her own mental health issues, and despite raking in fans for years, posing as the “married” guy and doting husband. I used to be a fan, no more. I still wish the best for all of them but esp for Anna and Petunia, who are much better off without him.

  15. Mon says:

    I literally had never heard of this guy before his divorce and hook up with Aaron Rodgers’ ex girlfriend.

  16. ElllenOlenska says:

    I hoped part of her settlement is blocking him from using her in any part of his comedy act going forward…

  17. J says:

    Ugh he sucks and I love Anne Marie so much. I feel for her what awfulness, she stood by him through addiction and he betrayed her. And Olivia was a mutual friend even if not close so I feel like that’s kind of a betrayal too. Like a double betrayal

  18. Lizzie says:

    I think he’s going to find out just how hard it is to find another woman of Annamarie’s caliber that will take on an alcoholic for the long haul. She was with him and stood by him when he went to rehab. To quote my own comment above, man he is an idiot.
    Also, I guess Seth Meyer is a great friend but please stop having JM on your show just so he can try to make the baby momma should like a legit gf/relationship.

  19. Twinkle says:

    I hope he paid through the nose.

  20. Sigmund says:

    I wish her and Petunia nothing but happiness and success.

    She was too good for him.

  21. Mcmmom says:

    I find him as alluring as a turnip. I wish her all the best.
