The Easter holidays in 2022 looked very different for a “Dancing With the Stars” professional.
Cheryl Burke and her now-ex Matthew Lawrence split in January 2022. according to Us Weekly. The two started dating in 2007, broke up for a while and rekindled their love in 2017. They tied the knot in 2019, but their relationship didn’t last.
“I know I’ve always said I’m an open book with you guys, I strive to be, and writing this I realized there really isn’t an easy way to announce the end of my marriage. I hope you understand that I will not comment further at this time and ask for your understanding and privacy. Thank you all for all the kind words and support you have given me,” Burke wrote in a statement to fans on February 24, 2022.
Neither Cheryl nor Matthew have spoken openly about their divorce proceedings and seem to be adjusting to their new lives in their own way.
On April 17, 2022, Cheryl spent her first vacation away from her boyfriend.

Cheryl relied on her family for support
Divorce isn’t easy, and many people experience a roller coaster of emotions as they come to terms with a failed marriage. It’s easier for some to deal with because they have a huge support system, while others are more withdrawn when figuring things out.
Burke is fortunate to have her parents – her mum Sherri and stepdad Bob – to help her through some of the challenging times in life, and she shared a post of their love and support on Easter Sunday.
“Happy Easter everyone! So grateful for such an incredible family. The love and support we have for one another is second to none. I hope you had a blessed day,” Burke captioned an Instagram post. She included photos of her with her parents and another photo of them all eating out together.
Cheryl spent time with her parents’ dogs, went for walks with her mother, and enjoyed meals with her family, including her sister, Nicole Wolf. Though Easter may have been different this year than years past, Burke seems to be in a good place.
Cheryl & Matthew celebrated Christmas together and broke up a few weeks later
The last major holidays were Christmas and New Year’s Eve, and according to Us WeeklyCheryl and Matthew were together for the former.
At the time, Cheryl shared a post on Instagram wishing her friends, fans and followers a Merry Christmas. The post included a few photos of her and Matthew together – but has since been deleted.
