Last month, Alexander confirmed that he was separated from his skater, in a statement on his Instagram stories.
He wrote, “I’m sorry I’ve been quiet on social media lately, but it has been a difficult time for me personally.
“Carlotta and I are separated. While it saddens me that we can’t be together anymore, I think it’s best for both of us.
“I’m looking forward to what the future holds, but meanwhile let’s all go home and stay safe.”

And now in an interview with The sun, Alexander opened up about the factors that ended his four-year marriage to the Canadian resident.
He said, “I think Carlotta had a hard time seeing me close, yet so professional, with Maura. It had an impact on her.
“I told Carlotta we needed a break, but I knew it was for good. I didn’t want to lead her anymore. She was shocked at how serious it was. ‘
He went on to say that it was his decision to ask for time for their union, adding that Carlotta was “very upset.”
He added, “I had to explain to Carlotta several times that Maura and I were just friends. As soon as the rumors start, it becomes a conversation – it was hard for Maura to be called a homewrecker online. ‘
Alexander discussed his friendship with Maura and explained that they became friends as soon as the Dancing On Ice training started, and that they had never ‘hidden’ their ‘close bond’.
