Former NBA star and ESPN analyst Jalen Rose announced on Wednesday that he and “First Take” co-host Molly Qerim have filed for divorce.

The couple had been married for three years.

“After being separated for almost a year, Molly and I have officially decided to go our separate ways,” Rose wrote on his Instagram story. “We both agree remaining friends and colleagues is the best course of action for our relationship going forward. Please respect our privacy at this time.”

Connecticut court records, first obtained by TMZ Sports, show that both parties filed for divorce by early May.

Qerim, who has removed Rose’s last name from her social media accounts, has yet to address the divorce. She was on “First Take” as scheduled on Wednesday morning.

Qerim, 37, was named a co-host of “First Take” in 2015. She is usually tasked with moderating the iconic ESPN morning show and keeping host Stephen A. Smith and his guests on track.

Rose, 48, was a member of the “Fab Five” team at Michigan and played in the NBA from 1994-2007. He joined ESPN shortly after retiring, and has been an analyst on “NBA Countdown” since 2012, among other things.
