UPDATE: Drew Barrymore and Will Kopelman have released a statement about their breakup. Read it below.


Drew Barrymore and Will Kopelman are calling it quits.

The couple have decided to go their separate ways and are heading for divorce after three years of marriage. The pair has two daughters Olive, 3, and Frankie, who will turn 2 later this month.

Page Six first reported the news. 

A source told E! News that the actress and art consultant were facing some troubles in their relationship. "They are living separately. Over the past few months, things seem to be up and down with the couple," the insider told us. "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."

Neither seemed to hint at any rockiness within their marriage, however there was a definite absence of the pair on social media. The last post of the couple was on Barrymore's Instagram back in June in honor of their anniversary.

With a photo of the duo enjoying a glass of wine at Petit Trois in Los Angeles, Barrymore captioned the photo, "Happy anniversary Mr. Kopelman, cheers to you! I love you and I love our daughters !!!!!!! #threeyears"

In December 2014, Barrymore gushed about being married to Kopelman. "I'm very happy," Drew beamed. "Marriage is great and the kids are the best. I know that everyone says you're supposed to treat your spouse as equal as your kids, but I struggle every day of who I love the most. I love them all!"

The couple got married in an ultra-secret ceremony back in 2012 at Barrymore's $6 million Montecito, Calif., estate. The 41-year-old actress wore a custom long, white Chanel dress pleated in muslin and organza, created for her by Karl Lagerfeld. 

The dress, which was accentuated at the waist by a black satin belt, also had flowers embroidered in organza, muslin, tulle and feathers along the skirt of the dress. Sources told E! News at the time that guests enjoyed a pre-ceremony cocktail party on the lawn of Drew's estate before being ushered into the marquee tent for the emotional service, which lasted 45 minutes.

The groom's family rabbi, flown in from New York, did the honors. Children of the couple's friends served as flower girls and ring bearers.
