What Aisha Tyler has to say?
Talking about all this on her show ‘The Talk’ in 2016, Jeff’s ex-wife Aisha said:
“He’s the person who has influenced me and cared for me the most. In fact, he cared for me even longer than my parents have cared for me and it’s very hard when you love someone very much to also start to realize that maybe you want different things for your life. That’s a very difficult realization to come to and you don’t want to accept it and you don’t want to believe it.”
She had gone on to state:
“Even though we’re separating, all I want for him is joy and fulfillment in whatever he chooses to do in his life next. And whatever I can do to help him do that, I want to do it.”
“He’s a wonderful person. He’s been my best friend for always my entire life. I’ll always love him.”
She had also cried on the show. She said that their relationship was not a failure and she was happy that she could have his extraordinary love for 25 years. She felt that she has been with him for more years than the amount of time she spent with her parents.
