Elliot Page is divorcing his wife Emma Portner after three years of marriage. Us Weekly and Page Six later confirmed the news.

Portner, 26, has said she has always supported Page's decision to come out. "We have the utmost respect for each other and remain close friends".

At the time, Portner shared her support for Page for speaking his truth.

The 33-year-old "Umbrella Academy" star first hinted at a relationship with Portner, a dance teacher and choreographer, in summer 2017, then the two announced at the beginning of 2018 that they had gotten married.

Though Page often praised his wife on social media, the last time the actor posted about them together was in March at the start of the COVID-19 lockdown.

Last month, Page declared that their name was Elliot and they are trans. "To be here. To have arrived at this place in my life", he wrote on Instagram.

"I can't begin to express how remarkable it feels to finally love who I am enough to pursue my authentic self", he added.

Page was nominated for an Oscar for their role in the 2007 film Juno, and now stars in the Netflix series Umbrella Academy.

He also acknowledged that though he was excited to make the announcement, he was "scared" of the "invasiveness, the hate, the jokes, and of violence" that come along with being transgender.

Page announced their marriage with an Instagram post displaying their rings on January 3, 2018, and they frequently shared moments from their travels and time together on the social media platform. "Thank you for inspiring me and for loving me", he wrote.

Page also attacked people who "spew hostility toward the trans community".

In a post months earlier, Page also celebrated Portner on her birthday with a sweet note.
