Professor Green and Millie Mackintosh granted 'quickie' divorce

Professor Green and Millie Mackintosh have been granted a quickie divorce.

The rapper and the reality TV star split in February after less than three years of marriage and received their decree nisi in just 30 seconds at a hearing at the Family Court in London on Wednesday (25.05.16).

Neither were present for the hearing.

Millie, 26 and Pro Green, 32 - whose real name is Stephen Manderson - have insisted their split was mutual and they will remain on "amicable" terms.

They previously said: "It is with sadness and regret that we confirm our separation.

"It is a mutual decision, we still care deeply about each other and would like it to be known that it is on amicable terms and we wish each other well."

A source added of the pair: "It's extremely sad that Millie and Stephen have decided to part ways, but they have managed to remain on the best of terms throughout their split and they are hopeful they will continue to do so."

News of the split came just weeks after Professor Green admitted he had only seen his wife once since the beginning of 2016.

He admitted: "I've only seen Millie once this year ... It was the first time I had seen her properly in 30 days. We had seen each other like ships in the night, but we weren't getting any quality time together.

"It is good sometimes to have space, but it is also difficult when you miss someone for that long."

Both Millie and Pro Green appear to have moved on; with the rapper recently linked to millionaire heiress Kate Rothschild.

The pair - who both live in London - have reportedly been "inseparable" with a source saying recently: "Kate and Stephen have started quietly dating.

"They've been inseparable the last couple of weeks. Lots of people in the Chelsea scene are talking about it."

And Millie has rekindled her romance with her ex-boyfriend and former 'Made In Chelsea' co-star Hugo Taylor.

A source previously said: "From what Millie is saying it seems more than just a rebound. She's being quite coy about it but she's really excited and loving being around Hugo again. Everyone knows he was her first love and she seems to be falling for him again."
