Elijah Blue and Marieangla King have been married for 6 years and 5 months, but have been separated since April 20, 2020, according to the filing.

"Yes, this then makes you look back at this hideous ordeal that you went through that would lead you to meet the love of your life and this is how crazy life is," Elijah told Entertainment Tonight.
In the interview, Allman described growing up in his parent's household, saying, "It wasn't like a sex drugs and rock and roll household, but you know there were a lot of big parties and there was an era for that. I mean like when I was a little kid like in the 80s there was a lot of that, you know.

"We were close. I think what happened was Chaz went off to a performing arts school back east and I went off back east as well, later to prep school, and so from there we kind of took different paths. But for a minute growing up we were kind of close, yeah... we kind of grew apart when we started going to different schools and just not being geographically around each other," Elijah told the outlet.
The divorce case is ongoing.
