And while Sonya is the one who ended things, she was heartbroken over the split! A friend told British paper The Sun, "One of the reasons it ended was her practice was doing well here in Nevada but Idris wanted to be in L.A. At some point he had a choice between being a husband or a heartbreaker. He chose his career over her."
