Kathy Griffin is taking her divorce trauma “one day at a time”.

The comic, 63, filed for divorce from her husband Randy Bick, 45, in December after nearly four years of marriage and has now declared she is keeping her mind focused on work to keep her mind off the pain of their split.

She told People about how she is handling the break-up amid her new stand-up concerts: “One day at a time. One show at a time. I thank God for this tour. I thank God it happened. I’m just so grateful to be on tour, so it takes my mind off it.”

Referring to one of her comedy heroes, Kathy added: “The great Joan Rivers used to say, ‘The more your life is in the s******, the more fun you are.’ “So I must be hilarious.”

Kathy filed for divorce with the Superior Court of California, with her legal papers showing she cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for her split from Randy.

Her filing was dated 22 December, and her papers also contained her request to terminate the court’s ability to award spousal support to both parties – with the comic asking the court to “enforce premarital agreement dated 12/23/2019”.

She said on Instagram as news of her divorce broke: “Well... s***. This sucks.”

Her split made headlines days before she and Randy were due to toast their fourth wedding anniversary.

In March, ‘Suddenly Susan’ star Kathy hired a private investigator to serve Randy divorce papers after his whereabouts could not be located.

Court documents at the time said he has “not been in contact” with Kathy, or told the comic where he is “residing or staying” since he left their shared home at Kathy’s request.

Another court filing later revealed Randy had requested spousal support and attorney’s fees be covered by Kathy in accordance with the pair’s prenuptial agreement.

The former couple started dating in 2011 before marrying in January 2020.

Kathy – who was married to 53-year-old actor Matt Moline from 2001 to 2006 – told People at the time about their unconventional approach to marriage traditions: “Randy and I are doing sort of toy rings for the ceremony because neither one of us like wearing rings ever. So we will never wear rings. Deal with it.”
