Struggling Louise Redknapp feared she wasn’t good enough for Jamie before split

Louise Redknapp and Jamie Redknapp's divorce was finalised and granted three years ago this week.

In under 25 seconds at the Central Family Court in London their marriage of 19 years was dissolved after Louise, 46, filed for it and Jamie, 47, did not contest the divorce or turn up for the short hearing on December 29, 2017.

The star, who rose to fame as a member of R&B group Eternal who sold more than 15 million records worldwide, has always kept tight lipped on why they divorced exactly but has given clues.

She previously opened up about it on Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s Spinning Plates podcast.

Louise told Sophie: "I wish, three years ago, I’d been able to just speak up. For a long time it was easy to blame him.

"But it was down to me to say, 'Something’s not right. My self-esteem is really struggling. I’ve got no passion.

"I wish I’d just gone, 'Right, the kids are getting older, and I love my job and I’m going to give it a real go, and Jamie, if you don’t like it, tough.

"But if you do like it, let’s talk about it.'"

The star described her marriage to Jamie during the podcast as "traditional" and she underwent a confidence crisis.

She also spoke on how she feels about moving on.

Louise said: "I don’t know whether someone ever gets over getting divorced after 20 years and not working for a long period of time and regaining your ability to get back up on stage."

Jamie is now believed to be dating Swedish model Frida Andersson-Lourie while Louise remained single.

It comes after a source claimed Louise was "struggling" ahead of the Christmas season.

The source told new magazine the Stretch songstress was finding it hard to face news her ex-husband Jamie is spending Christmas with his new girlfriend.

They told the publication: "I think Louise is struggling. That's why you're seeing cryptic quotes and the sexy selfies she's been posting," the magazine's source claimed.

"She's trying to show Jamie what he's missing. But in her heart, I think she's still crumbling."
