After nearly seven years of marriage, David Schwimmer and his wife Zoe Buckman are taking some time apart.
“It is with great love, respect and friendship that we have decided to take some time apart while we determine the future of our relationship,” said the duo in a statement to Us Weekly on Wednesday.
“Our priority is, of course, our daughter’s happiness and well-being during this challenging time, and so we ask for your support and respect for our privacy as we continue to raise her together and navigate this new chapter for our family," they added.
According to the celebrity news magazine, the 50-year-old star of “Friends” and the 31-year-old British photographer have been together for more than 10 years.
They met in 2007 when Schwimmer was directing the comedy flick, “Run,” in London. She then moved to Los Angeles to be with the actor. The couple married in 2010. It was the first wedding for both.
Schwimmer and Buckman welcomed a daughter, now 5-year-old Cleo, in May 2011.
The last public appearance for the couple was for the opening night of “The Front Page” at the Broadhurst Theatre in New York City in October 2016.
