In an official statement from Jodie Sweetin, the “Fuller House” star and her fiance Justin Hodak have split.
“We can confirm the actress Jodie Sweetin and her fiance Justin Hodak have ended their relationship,” says Sweetin’s rep. “She appreciates everyone’s understanding for their need for privacy at this time.”
The split has not been easy on Hodak, as ET Canada has learned he has since been arrested on two occasions. The first arrest came when Sweetin called 911 after Hodak threatened to commit suicide on March 18. The LAPD told ET, “During the course of the investigation [Hodak] was found to possess a firearm, he is a prior felon and a prior felon may not possess firearms. He was arrested for ex-con with a gun.”
Hodak was arrested again on March 24 for violating an Emergency Protective Order from the first arrest. Police said he “came back over to the residence which he was restrained from and officers made contact and he was arrested for violating a court order.”
The couple met through some mutual friends and hit it off, dating for two years before getting engaged in January 2016.
Shortly before their engagement Sweetin told People magazine, “We reconnected a little over two years ago. It’s been really good ever since.”
In fact, Hodak was a fan of “Full House”, the show that started it all for Sweetin, “He’s super excited and he watched ‘Full House’ growing up,” Sweetin previously said. “It was something kids our age watched and he really loves it.”
In 2013 Sweetin split from her third husband, Morty Coyle, after only a year of marriage. She was also previously married to Cody Herpin, with whom she shares 8-year-old daughter Zoie.
On Thursday, Sweetin broke her silence with an Instagram post, thanking her followers for all their support.
“Thank you so much to everyone who has reached out over the past two weeks,” Sweetin writes. “It’s definitely been a roller coaster, but with amazing family, friends and fans, I’ll be just fine! These two little loves are my everything and we will make it through!! Thank you for all the love!!”
