The former couple were married in a Jewish ceremony at the same hotel in September 2017.

"I have a lot of family history at the hotel. My grandparents were regular customers of the hotel and I learned to love it when I was a young child," Flagg told ET at the time.

Flagg revealed on Instagram earlier this month that he and Boyd were "divorcing" after five years of marriage.

"This might sound abrupt but I felt I should be transparent from the top rather than bury the headline," Flagg shared on March 4. "This was not a rash or impulsive decision. We have been very thoughtful before coming to this conclusion."

"It was not a lack of love but rather the two of us growing in different directions and wanting very different things for ourselves," he continued. "I care deeply about Bobby and have nothing but love and respect for him. I want how we separate from each other to represent that."

Following Flagg's post, Boyd also shared a statement on Instagram.

"The last 6 years of my life I wouldn't change for the world," Boyd wrote. "6 years ago, I met and fell in love with my best friend. From the first date we were inseparable and took off at lightning speed. Josh and I had a whirlwind of a love story that I will forever be grateful for. We have both taught each other so much and have learned so much about ourselves throughout our relationship.

"As the news has come out, it may seem sudden to most of you, but Josh and I have been spending the last couple of months figuring this out together," he continued. "We wanted this to be private between us and not involve most of our friends and family. If there is one thing I can say about both of us, it's that we both gave everything we absolutely could to make this work."

He added that he would always consider Flagg "part of my family."

Flag's Million Dollar Listing: LA costar Tracy Tutor told PEOPLE exclusively that the couple was handling the split "incredibly maturely."

"[Josh is] one of my closest friends and I love him and Bobby," she said earlier this month. "Obviously Josh confides in me and he's doing okay. He's hanging in there as is Bobby."

"I think that Bobby wants a family and Josh is sort of not in that space at the moment," she shared. "This isn't anything that hasn't been on the television show. I think that that's all very real for both of them and so I'm not surprised. I'm never surprised anymore."
