Strange things about Robert Herjavec and Kym Johnson
Herjavec and his ex-wife, Diane Plese, were married for 24 years when they decided to legally separate. With divorce looming on the horizon, Herjavec fell into a dark period of his life, telling People magazine that he “just wanted to end it,” having contemplated suicide.
On March 3, 2015, Herjavec announced that he and Plese were officially moving forward with the divorce in a statement to TMZ. “Human Relationships are so difficult … I wish nothing but love and peace for our family as we move forward from this,” he said.
Single ladies worldwide who thought they might have a chance with the millionaire hunk were met with disappointment when just a few days after his divorce announcement, he was spotted out on the town with Johnson. They were all smiles as they drove around in his fancy, exotic car, and it was pretty clear that his wounds from his previous marriage had healed, thanks, in part, to Johnson.
The timing of the end of his marriage and the start of his relationship with Johnson is pretty suspicious, but Johnson insisted that they were strictly platonic when they first met. “We got to know each other on a friendship level. That developed into something else,” she told People in January 2016.
