Who is Mikhaila Peterson's husband Andrey as podcaster reveals divorce?


Mikhaila Peterson, daughter of psychologist and public speaker Jordan Peterson, has announced on social media she’s splitting from husband Andrey Korikov.

Mikhaila took to her Instagram page to share the news, despite usually being a private person. She rarely shares insights into her family life besides the occasional appreciation post for daughter Elizabeth Scarlett. However, she felt she needed to address the situation with her following.

Although her father is psychologist and public speaker Jordan Peterson, Mikhaila has her own successful YouTube channel with 404K subscribers, thanks to The Mikhaila Peterson Podcast.

What did Mikhaila say about their divorce?

The couple’s relationship had been on and off for about three years so their relationship was rocky around the time Elizabeth was born.

Mikhaila has said the past five years have been “absolutely absurd” given her autoimmune disease, fame and declining health of her parents.

The Don’t Eat That blogger was diagnosed with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis aged seven, depression at 12 and idiopathic hypersomnia at 21. She follows a strict diet of beef, salt and water, which she claims has cured her condition.

In April 2019, her mother Tammy Roberts was diagnosed with terminal cancer and the family travelled to Russia in February 2020 to treat Jordan’s dependence on the drug clonazepam. He spent eight days in a medically induced coma.

Despite it all, Mikhaila has said she’s the happiest she’s ever been.
