Mulaney shared Petunia with his wife of seven years, Anna Marie Tendler. Tendler took ownership of Petunia after their divorce. Mulaney and Tendler got Petunia in 2014, around the time they got married. Mulaney and Tendler announced their divorce in May 2021, and many fans asked who gets custody of Petunia, who has her own fan base with over 130,000 followers on Instagram. Mulaney was going to rehab around that time, with his representative was quoted saying “John will not have any further comment as he continues to focus on his recovery and getting back to work.” Petunia had been spotted on ex-wife Tendler’s Instagram after their break up and stopped appearing on Mulaney’s, leading the public to assume that Tendler did take custody of Petunia.
