Actress Drew Barrymore and Will Kopelman are reportedly getting divorced after almost four years of marriage. The couple, who share two young daughters, used to have arguments over where to live, reported People magazine. “They’ve had marriage issues for a while,” a source close to the family said. While she was leaning towards Los Angeles, he was more comfortable remaining in Upper East Side, New York City.
Another source suggested that the problem ran deeper than that. “Drew had a very rebellious and wild childhood, with no family around her, and while she is a very different person now, and a great mother, some of that can stay with you,” the insider said.
They are reportedly living separately. “Over the past few months, things seem to be up and down with the couple. He has not been involved in her company Flower. They seemed also to not be very close or connected as a couple. Drew never spoke bad about her husband, they just seemed very disconnected,” a source said.
They were said to have worked on their splits arrangements including where the girls will stay. Three-year-old Olive goes to a pre-school in NYC. The couple also have a one-year-old daughter named Frankie.
This would be Barrymore’s third failed marriage albeit the longest. She was married to bartender Jeremy Thomas for less than two months in 1994. Her marriage to comedian Tom Green in 2001 lasted only five months.
