Gypsy Rose Blanchard and her husband have called it quits.

Blanchard, 32, announced the split with Ryan Scott Anderson on Facebook.

The breakup news came just three months after Blanchard was released from Chillicothe Correctional Center in Missouri after serving more than eight years in prison for plotting to murder her mother, Dee Dee Blanchard, with then-boyfriend Nicholas "Nick" Godejohn.

On Thursday, Blanchard shared an announcement via social media.

"People have been asking what is going on in my life. Unfortunately my husband and I are going through a separation and I moved in with my parents home down the bayou. I have the support of my family and friends to help guide me through this. I am learning to listen to my heart. Right now I need time to let myself find… who I am," she wrote in a statement obtained by PEOPLE from her private Facebook account.

The couple tied the knot in a jailhouse ceremony with no guests in July 2022.

In an interview with PEOPLE ahead of her early release in December 2023, Blanchard said she planned to marry the Louisiana middle school special education teacher again after her release.

"We do plan on having a reception/redo wedding with all of our family and our friends and the dress and the cake and everything because we deserve that. I deserve that. He deserves that," she said. "Our prison wedding was just something to where we can make our vows to each other. It was something that meant something to us. And I think the party is kind of for everybody else and us, but mostly for everybody else."

At the time, Blanchard said she was excited about moving in with Anderson and starting their life together.

“I’ve never lived with a man,” she said. “I grew up with a mom, so I didn’t even grow up with a dad in the house. So, I’m like, ‘I don’t even know what it’s like to live with a man.’”

Blanchard was charged with the killing of her mother Dee Dee who was found dead in June 2015.

Her then-boyfriend, Nick Godejohn, was also charged with the slaying.

After the arrests, it was discovered that Dee Dee subjected Gypsy to unnecessary medical treatments and convinced her daughter and others that her daughter had a litany of illnesses as a child. In court, it was argued Gypsy was a victim of Munchausen syndrome by proxy, a form of child abuse that involves a guardian exaggerating or inducing illness to gain sympathy.

Gypsy pleaded guilty in 2016 and was sentenced to 10 years in prison.  Godejohn was sentenced to life in prison without parole in 2019 following his trial conviction for first-degree murder, the Springfield News-Leader, KY3 and KOAM reported at the time.

Earlier this month, Blanchard shared a video on TikTok before deleting her social media platforms. In the video, she apologized to “all the people that I offended with a lack of accountability, the first month or so that I was out of prison and the lack of accountability in my interviews, I'm sorry. I'm learning. I take accountability for my part, and I'm saying this right now. I'm taking accountability. I did a bad thing."

A source explained to PEOPLE that she deleted her accounts “at the advisement of her parole officer, so she won’t get in trouble and go back to jail."
