Comedian Ali Wong Does An Entire Netflix Special About How She Wants A Divorce, Promptly Divorces Her Husband

Ali Wong and her husband Justin Hakuta are ending their marriage.

After eight years together, the pair have decided to divorce. "It's amicable and they will continue to co-parent lovingly," a source tells PEOPLE of the former couple.

Wong's rep confirmed the news to PEOPLE on Tuesday.

The comedian and actress, 39, first met Hakuta, 39, at a friend's wedding reception in 2010 and immediately hit it off. At the time, Hakuta was a Fulbright scholar and student at Harvard Business School.

If you've seen Ali Wong's newest special on Netflix, "Don Wong," this will come as absolutely zero surprise. It's also not much of a surprise considering any comedian who devotes a large chunk of their act to their spouse/significant other, with "playful jokes" about marriage that actually come across as if they're stuck in a prison, ends up getting divorced (cough John Mulaney cough.) 

Ali's last special was NOT "playful jokes." She was straight up wishing for a divorce, wishing to "fuck other guys" now that she's rich and famous, but wrapping it up at the end saying she does love her husband, because he lets her be herself 100%. While watching I thought "damn, they must be incredibly secure in their relationship considering how brutal this is" - I'm mostly a jealous and insecure person when it comes to relationships, but I do know what it's like to have complete faith and security in someone, where I could be a little more understanding when it comes to the modern day version of monogamy. But this special? I would've been waiting off stage with divorce papers. I'm almost feeling a little woke on the situation and wondering if they were mid divorce and/or seriously planning on doing it, BEFORE this special even aired. 

To be clear, I love Ali Wong. The jokes were hilarious. She's extremely honest and the special was CERTAINLY juicy. I'm thinking the writing may have always been on the wall for this divorce:

In her 2019 memoir addressed to her daughters, titled Dear Girls: Intimate Tales Untold Secrets and Advice for Living Your Best Life, Wong revealed she signed a prenup prior to tying the knot.

As a result, the Always Be My Maybe star shared she became "more motivated to make my own money because I signed a document specifically outlining how much I couldn't depend on my husband," CNBC reported.

"My father always praised 'the gift of fear,'" she wrote. "And that prenup scared the s--- out of me. In the end, being forced to sign that prenup was one of the greatest things that ever happened to me and my career."

There you have it. Could the deep seated resentment for having to sign a prenup have pushed her into skyrocketing her own career, so she could dump him? First she "trapped his ass" because he went to Harvard, now she knows she can live life without him. I normally don't believe people can comfortably "co parent" all the time, but with these two, it might be a real possibility. It's almost like this was always going to go down, and now here we are. She says in that clip above, "I'm a real piece of shit. I don't want anyone to be surprised when they see the TMZ article of me getting my face hosed by Michael B Jordan." 

Congrats to Ali on all her future rich and famous sex!!
