On Sunday night, Chris Pratt and Anna Faris sadly announced that they are separating.
The recently-estranged couple made the announcement to their fans and the public on their respective social media platforms.
Their full statement reads:
”Anna and I are sad to announce we are legally separating. We tried hard for a long time, and we’re really disappointed. Our son has two parents who love him very much and for his sake we want to keep this situation as private as possible moving forward. We still have love for each other, will always cherish our time together and continue to have the deepest respect for one another.”
When news of their separation broke, fans took to Twitter to share their heartbreak and confusion at the shocking news. Pratt and Faris had been deemed #RelationshipGoals by fans since they met on the set of Take Me Home Tonight in 2007 and married in 2009.
Why are Chris Pratt and Anna Faris separating?
A big Mother's Day kiss and hug across the pond to my darling wife @annafaris and our sweet boy. I miss you both so much. I love you. Due to forced perspective in this picture Jack looks much bigger than Anna. How beautiful are they!? And the azaleas too! Richmond Park in full bloom. #happymothersday
While the couple has yet to reveal why exactly they are splitting after 8 years of marriage, fans have begun speculating why they are calling it quits. Some believe the couple's work and travel schedule has been keeping them apart and straining their relationship.
Others believe the rumors that Chris Pratt was having an affair with Jennifer Lawrence on the set of Passengers. But are the rumors true?
Did Chris Pratt cheat on Anna Faris with Jennifer Lawrence?
My dear sweet @annafaris getting flashbacks from her hilarious role in Lost in Translation. Thank you for the support honey! You look so beautiful. These press tours can be such a whirlwind. I'm grateful to have you and the boy with me on this one. Although it's 3:00am right now, I was just awakened by a square kick to the back as little man climbed into bed and then must have had a karate dream or something and now I can't sleep. I'm on insta instead. All you dads and moms know what I'm talking about. 😂♥️🙏👆👍🏼🙌
It seems very possible that Faris was never able to get over the rumors that her husband had an affair with his costar. Faris revealed in her podcast Unqualified that the cheating allegations made her very insecure and hurt:
"I didn’t want to think of myself as somebody who could be bothered by tabloid sh*t,” Faris told guest Ilsa Fischer. "I take pride in how great my relationship is with Chris, but having said that, of course, in this crazy world where he’s off doing movies and I’m in L.A. raising our child, of course I’m going to feel vulnerable, like any normal human would."
We may never know the real reason for the Pratt-Faris split, but we hope they are able to find closure as they co-parent their son together.
