Speaking to MailOnline, a close friend of the makeup a
rtist has revealed that Lisa has been leaning on her friends for support since Ant made the decision to end their 12-year marriage.
A friend of Lisa’s told the publication: “Lisa has told me she’s been through hell for the last two years.
“She wasn’t sure if her marriage would survive, but she stood by him to try to save him. It has been so hard for her.
“Ant has been in such a bad way that she often feared the situation was untenable.”
They added that Lisa was “open with her friends that she didn’t see how the marriage could survive.”
This comes a day after Lisa dropped hints she was “in pain” on her Twitter account.
While she hasn’t posted anything herself, she has liked various tweets from fans that are tweeting their support during the difficult time.
