Drew Barrymore is getting a divorce. The actress and her husband of four years, Will Kopelman, have decided to part ways. According to People Magazine, sources say that the two have been having issues for a while, but ultimately decided that they couldn’t work things out.
“They’ve had marriage issues for a while. There was tension over where to live,” revealed a source. Evidently Drew would prefer to live in Los Angeles, but Will wants to live in New York City. Sources say that this is now the couple’s biggest dilemma. They have reportedly not made any decisions.
Drew Barrymore and Will Kopelman released a statement confirming their split shortly after the news was reported. The couple has two daughters, Olive, 3, and Frankie, 1, who they say remain their main focus as they journey through this different way of life.
“Sadly our family is separating legally, although we do not feel this takes away from us being a family. Divorce might make one feel like a failure, but eventually you start to find grace in the idea that life goes on. Our children are our universe, and we look forward to living the rest of our lives with them as the first priority.”
Many people were shocked to hear that Drew Barrymore and Will Kopelman are divorcing. Although this is Drew’s third marriage, many hoped this would be the one that would work for her. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case.
