Third time lucky? Not so much. Drew Barrymore and her art consultant husband Will Kopelman have decided to head to divorce court, sources close to the couple claim. This brings to an end the 41-year-old actress' third marriage, which lasted almost four years and during which the couple had two daughters, Olive and Frankie.
According to Page Six, a source said: "They've been having some difficulties, but they remain close for the sake of their kids." Another source added: "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 50 First Dates star married 38-year-old Kopelman, who is the wealthy son of former Chanel CEO Arie Kopelman, in 2012. In 2015, she told InStyle magazine: "It was never really love at first sight. Will struck a lot of my pragmatic sides. He was someone who was always reachable on the phone, someone who was a classy human being, someone who has this incredible blueprint of a family that I don't have."
Reps of both Barrymore and Kopelman have not responded to queries regarding the separation.
Despite the disappointing end, this happens to be Barrymore's longest marriage. She married bartender Jeremy Thomas in 1994 at the age of 19 and filed for divorce less than two months later. In 2001, she tied the knot with comedian Tom Green (who she worked with in Charlie's Angels). The marriage lasted five months.
Her tumultuous love life has often been attributed to the The Miss You Already actress' troubled early years. Having come from a family of Hollywood greats, she became a child star after her memorable role as Gertie in Steven Spielberg's ET but by age 10 she was engaged in drinking and drugs. Her attempted suicide by the age of 14 led to her second stint in rehab.
