The couple met each other through some mutual friends and dated for more than three years before getting engaged in February 2014, and later tied their knots in September 2015, but unfortunately, now they recently announced their split on Thursday.

They were not seen with each other for a long time; the last time they appeared together was at the Oscars in March 2018. The couple did share a $2 million apartment in Chelsea, but now they are living apart.

As a statement collected by PEOPLE the couple jointly has said that- “With mutual love and respect, we have made the decision to separate as a couple,” to which they further added that “We are grateful for the friendship that we have and will continue to have.”

There was no specific reason stated for their separation, but a few of their close friends have said that the two of them are very different from each other and maybe that is why they took this step to end their marriage. However, they are determined to stay friends even after the divorce.
