Following on from news Amber Heard and Elon Musk have broken up after one year of dating, in slightly more shocking information set to saturate your newsfeed tonight, Anna Faris and Chris Pratt have announced their separation.

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,” a statement read on Pratt’s Facebook page. “We still have love for each other, will always cherish our time together and continue to have the deepest respect for one another.”

A similar statement was echoed on Faris’ Twitter account. The announcement comes after eight years of marriage and endless #couplegoals memes. The pair met on the set of Take Me Home Tonight in 2007. They were married a year later in Bali and welcomed a son, Jack, into the world in 2012. Three year later, they were rocked with a tabloid scandal where it was rumoured in the media that Pratt had cheated on Faris with Passengers co-star Jennifer Lawrence. Faris was very candid about how the rumour affected her.  “[That] stung a little bit harder than I thought it would,” she told Us Weekly at the time. “I had always kind of believed that part of the rumours of celebrity couples were sort of true because they had never been part of my life. I was like, ‘Oh, maybe there’s a kernel of truth to that.’ It’s been a little devastating because for us, it’s like, ‘What the heck?’. This has been blindsiding to us. We have an incredible relationship. It has been weirdly stinging.”

More to come.
