The couple of nine years announced their breakup Tuesday in a statement to People.

"Sadly we have decided to go our separate ways," they said. "We've shared nine beautiful and joyous years together. During that time we experienced love, friendship and the inevitable challenges that come with managing a marriage, careers, blended families and health issues." It was unclear whether either had filed for divorce.

The Bravo star, 51, who, along with one daughter and her son, has openly struggled with complications from Lyme disease, was previously married to real estate mogul Mohamed Hadid. Hadid is the father of her famous kids: models Gigi Hadid, 20, and Bella Hadid, 19, and son Anwar Hadid, 16.

It would be the fourth divorce for the 16-time Grammy Award winner, 66, who was married previously to B.J. Cooke, Rebecca Dyer and Linda Thompson. David Foster has produced records for artists including Whitney Houston, Christina Aguilera, Andrea Bocelli, Michael Buble, Celine Dion, Barbra Streisand, Jennifer Lopez and Madonna.

The couple wed on Nov. 11, 2011, (a.k.a 11-11-11) and the Dutch bride wore a strapless, beaded Monique Lhuillier wedding gown. She was escorted down the aisle by her son, then 12, and her daughters served as bridesmaids. Their wedding highlights reel can be seen here.

In October, Foster, who joined "Real Housewives" in 2012, unloaded her 3.25-acre estate --  which she acquired in 2007 before having a three-level European-inspired villa custom-built there -- for $19.495 million.
