Then Cindy divorced her spouse in 2002 after almost two decades of marriage. The main reason behind the divorce was reportedly her husband's illness with a rare disease called Dissociative Identity Disorder.

Cindy, in one of her interview, said that her husband tried to kill her, her friends, and his therapist in a therapy session. She stated that there were many other incidents Herschel doesn’t recall. One of the events was that Herschel was having evil thoughts of hurting Cindy while she was pregnant.
