General Hospital star Chad Duell (Michael Corinthos) is setting the record straight about his marriage to The Young and the Restless star Courtney Hope (Sally Spectra). The daytime television couple shocked the world when they announced that they were separating after only two months of marriage and five long years together. And now Chad says that while there’s been a lot of speculation about what went down behind closed doors between them, all the rumors couldn’t be any further from the truth. The ex-couple announced their split back in December, and before the holidays. Here’s what he has to say.
General Hospital Star Chad Duell Explains His Break Up With Courtney Hope, Admits They Were Never Legally Married
Chad sat down with fellow General Hospital star Maurice Benard (Sonny Corinthos) in the latest episode for his YouTube series, “State of Mind.” Chad began things by saying that he has nothing but love for Courtney and that their breakup wasn’t as dramatic as one would expect.
Chad put it this way, “Out of respect to her, I’m not going to delve too much into all thus stuff. All I’d say is she’s an amazing person, she’s an amazing woman, she’s an amazing dog mom. It’s a complicated situation and it’s not what anybody thinks. I’m not going to get into detail, but it’s not what people think. There was nothing terrible that had happened that somebody did to anybody else. Yeah, we’re still on good terms and she’s an amazing person in so many ways…. All I have to say is positive things.”

He also said that the breakup was mutual and that even though they did have a Malibu wedding back in October, they were never really officially married. He explained, “We didn’t actually sign anything; we weren’t really, like, married, really. It was amicable [and] that’s all I can really say and we always want the best for each other.”
