Sheree has yet to comment on the separation, but comments on her last Instagram post, which she uploaded two days ago and have nothing to do with her personal life, are not very flattering to the fitness expert.
One person commented: "That’s sad you cheated…..we respected you but you can’t even respect your own husband. Sick."
Another added: "Heartbreaking. You and Steve have such a beautiful family."
One fan claimed to have had enough: "Babies are ALWAYS reason to celebrate. However, I’m disappointed in the infidelity. I can’t continue to follow."
And one fan called for a total overhaul: "Change your last name. You don’t deserve Steve’s!"
In 1998, Steve won a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series.
Aside from his time on the soap opera, he has appeared in various films, television shows, and video games.
He's also had roles in sci-fi miniseries Taken, as well as 2001's The Last Castle.
Steve is a voice actor for the Kingdom Hearts video game franchise, as well as the Final Fantasy franchise.
In 2012, Burton left his position at General Hospital and began a run on fellow soap, The Young and the Restless. He portrayed Dylan McAvoy on the show until 2016, earning another Daytime Emmy Award.
He returned to his position on General Hospital the following year, in June of 2017.
But controversy soon came calling oncemore.
On Tuesday, November 23, 2021, the actor confirmed he has been fired from the show for his anti-vaxx stance.
Following an onset of rumors regarding his status on General Hospital, Steve Burton took to his Instagram account to make the announcement that he had officially been let go from the show.
Alongside a video of him explaining why he'd been fired, Burton wrote "Hey! I wanted you to hear it from me. I love and appreciate all of you!"
“I wanted you to hear it from me personally.” he said in the video.
“Unfortunately, General Hospital has let me go because of the vaccine mandate. I did apply for my medical and religious exemptions, and both of those were denied. Which, you know, hurts. But this is also about personal freedom to me.”
The vaccine mandate for Zone A at General Hospital went into effect on November 1, 2021. Zone A includes those present on set when the actors aren’t wearing masks, and the actors themselves.
Burton reportedly tested positive for COVID-19 in August of last year.'
