*DeVon Franklin’s marriage to Meagan Good may have damaged his heart, but he is not calling the failed union a mistake.

During a recent appearance on Nick Cannon’s Counsel Culture podcast, Franklin addressed how he healed from his split with Good. The couple were married close to a decade after jumping the broom in June 2012, according to Essence. Franklin filed for divorce from Good in 2021, with the breakup finalized in June 2022. Irreconcilable differences were cited as the reason for the pair’s split.

Voicing his feelings over his failed relationship, Franklin opened up about the situation with an honest assessment.

“I wouldn’t say that it didn’t work. I wouldn’t say it was unsuccessful,” the ordained minister told Cannon. “Because maybe it did exactly what it was trying to do. That also was a perspective that I had to kinda learn as I went through my healing.”

“I wouldn’t necessarily say that I came out of it feeling like a failure. But I felt a little bit vulnerable. I felt like my belief system had been shaken,” Franklin admitted, noting the four months of pre-engagement counseling he and Good did as well as 10 months of premarital counseling and therapy throughout their marriage.

Not even sharing their story in literary form with their book “The Wait” was enough to help their relationship.

“That was [a] devastating moment. And for me as a man, I had two choices,” Franklin said. “I could say, ‘You know what? I’m gonna act like none of this bothers me, and I’m just gonna keep going.’ Or I could just say, ‘You know what? I’m gonna be truthful. This hurts.’ And so for me, I chose the truthful route.”

Cannon’s interview with Franklin isn’t the first time the 45-year-old author/producer has spoken about how his divorce impacted him. In past interviews, Franklin has spoken highly of Good, adding he still has love for her.

The romance may not be there, but that doesn’t mean the love disappeared.

“Love is eternal. So my love for her doesn’t stop at marriage. My commitment to her well-being is still intact,” Franklin shared.

Despite the divorce, Essence reports the motivational speaker has a “hopeful attitude and still wants to be married again.” So much so that the author has reportedly moved on and is currently involved with a mystery woman he was seen out and holding hands with earlier this week.

As for Good, her spare time has been spent with actor Jonathan Majors. The pair have been dating for close to a year.
