Transcript for Michael, Sara and Jordin Sparks discuss Chrissy Teigen's parents' divorce
Did you see -- "People" is reporting that Chrissy Teigen's dad Ron teeg Teigen filed for divorce from her mom, better known as pepper. How would you feel that your parents got divorced at this time in your life and do you think parents should feel responsibility to stay together for adult children? Good question. I don't think it's probably a good idea to stay together for children ever mainly because I think sometimes a relationship can get so toxic and awful that you're not doing anyone a solid by staying.

I wouldn't want -- I knew my parents -- to be honest, I knew my parents were better off as friends when I was 10 years old. I just knew that. For them, once it finally happened, I was like that was a long time coming. Every situation is different.
