The divorce curse continues. After Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie announced their split just last week, we thought the we couldn’t get any more shocks, but just this mornings, it’s been confirmed that 47-year old Naomi Watts and 48-year old Live Schreiber have ended their 11 year relationship.
The pair confirmed the heart-breaking news to ET with a statement saying,
““Over the past few months we’ve come to the conclusion that the best way forward for us as a family is to separate as a couple. It is with great love, respect, and friendship in our hearts that we look forward to raising our children together and exploring this new phase of our relationship. While we appreciate your curiosity and support, we ask the press to be mindful of our children and respect their right to privacy.”
The pair first started dating in 2015 after they met at the met Gala and have two children trogether, nine-year old Alexander (who they call Sasha) and seven-year old Samuel.
For their first date, Liev took Naomi to New York’s famous Magnolia Bakery and they ate cupcakes on a park bench.
““It was very silly, very romantic,” he said. “And we had a kiss, not a big kiss, but it was a kiss that was like, ooh. Then she went back to LA and I wrote her all the time. Lots of emails. I think that was it — seduced by email.”
Our thoughts are with the couple.
