Lisa Marie Zbozen "couldn't be enough" for Jay Blades.

The 44-year-old fitness instructor tied the knot with 'Repair Shop' star Jay, 54, in a small ceremony in November 2022 but his wife announced on social media that on Thursday (02.05.24) they had called it quits and tearfully confessed in an update later that evening that she just "couldn't seem to get things right" for him.

Speaking in an Instagram Story, she said: "OK I am going to try this for the fortieth time without crying. So, I just want to say thank you so much to everyone who has sent a message and been so nice.

"I don't really, I still don't really believe that this is actually real because if you knew how much I loved my husband and how much I have tried to make this work over and over again. I just wanted it so much and I couldn't be enough. I couldn't seem to get it right ever."

Jay is yet to speak out publicly on the split, but Lisa used first announced the news with a lengthy post in which she apoloigsed to her followers for the lack of fitness updates but was "so incredibly sad" after things deteriorated in her marriage to the point where she just packed her bags.

She wrote: "I don’t know how to say this because it’s still really raw.

"My marriage has been very abusive for a long time and last weekend I finally left.

"I probably should be really angry but I’m just incredibly sad about the whole thing right now. I don’t think I’ve ever cried so much. I wanted my husband to love me and keep me safe, and I would love him right back, but it just got worse and worse, until I grabbed a bag of a few thing’s and I left.

"Teresa and Ben have given me a place to stay and I’m very grateful for that. Anyway, That’s why there’s been no new wkouts.

( I would never miss a wkout - I’d do it on the pavement bare foot and naked if I had to.

"This is the first post I’ve made outloud, and it feels like I’m numb.

"I will admit I’m crying as I type this as I can’t believe this is even real.

"I hope you don’t mind if I just have a few days trying to figure out my life as I’m currently in a spare room with a few essentials. "I don’t know what else to say. The world got the best parts of my husband, and over time, I got a whole lot of everything else. No matter how bad it got I still apologised and still tried to fix it, because I loved my husband, very much. I just hope that by saying something, it will save it from happening to someone else in the future, or make someone else feel brave enough to speak up.
