Paloma Faith confirms split from husband as she enjoys 'single mum' holiday with kids

Singer Paloma Faith has confirmed she's single again whilst she enjoys a 'single mum' holiday with her two daughters.

The global singing sensation confirmed the split after rumours of the separation that she and her partner of nine years Leyman Lahcine had called it quits. The pair share two daughters, aged five and two, from their marriage together.

42-year-old singer Paloma confirmed her single status as shared snaps including a sizzling bikini picture from her Mallorca holiday with the kids, and used the hashtag '#singlemum' on her Instagram post as she detailed looking after her two kids alone in Spain.

Sharing some of her holiday snaps on Instagram, Paloma wrote: "Just got back from holidays in Mallorca where I realised I speak 'survival Spanish' (not bad considering I wasn't raised with my dad speaking to me in Spanish). I can single-handedly do a flight with two kids alone, that I love the company of my kids but it's easier with others around, that I am blessed in a million ways and will always be grateful."

She continued as she added: "Everything can wait (needed to learn this), that nothing needs to be a stressful as it often becomes (stress is accumulative) and that I probably should live in a place with a warmer climate (who's coming?)." Then she appeared to confirm her separation from husband Leyman as she used the hashtags: "#singlemum #palomafaith #mallorca #helpfromfriends #family #summerholiday #mumlife #workaholic."

Rumours that Paloma and Leyman had called time on their relationship began last year, with Paloma reportedly telling friends at Jonathan Ross' Halloween party that she was single. A source told The Sun: "Paloma and Leyman have ended their relationship and she is very much single. Things between Paloma and Leyman became strained over the past year and they're no longer together – although they co-parent their children together."

Paloma and Leyman began dating in late 2013 but kept their relationship a secret, later marrying in 2017. However, rumours that the couple were splitting emerged at the end of last year, but Paloma had hinted at struggles as early as January 2022 when she admitted she was having a personal life "crisis" and gets "anxiety" from "being around people" in an Instagram post.

She reassured fans as she wrote: "I havent [sic] been posting much on here because I've been having a few crises in my personal life. But I want you all to know I'm grateful for you all and I'm writing new music, and working on loads of bits and bobs too.

"But I'm in the middle of what can only be described as a cluster f**k. It's music and writing and working keeping me going! Also, food for thought, you never hear a man described as a 'career man' do you I've been described so many times as a 'career woman' and it just dawned on me."
