Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber are officially over. After 11-years together, the stars have confirmed that their relationship has concluded. The couple was never married, but spending 11 years of your life with someone is a LONG time. A joint statement confirmed the news of the split.
“Over the past few months we’ve come to the conclusion that the best way forward for us as a family is to separate as a couple,” Schreiber and Watts said in a joint statement. “It is with great love, respect, and friendship in our hearts that we look forward to raising our children together and exploring this new phase of our relationship. While we appreciate your curiosity and support, we ask the press to be mindful of our children and respect their right to privacy,” the statement continued.
The surprising thing about the split is that Star Magazine was probably right all along about Watts and Schreiber. There was allegedly a rift between the couple on the set of The Bleeder. So much so that they apparently split as soon as production wrapped, but stayed together in the public eye until the promotional efforts for the movie were over.
