It’s been just over a week since fans were stunned by the news that Chris Pratt and Anna Faris have separated after eight years of marriage.
Pratt announced the split via social media, but the couple has kept mum with regard to the factors that led them to the decision to part ways.
Those who know them best say there was no infidelity and blowout fight precipitated the end of Chris and Anna’s marriage.
Pratt’s success seems to have been a factor, however, as Faris reportedly thought she and her husband should both spend more time at home.
Sources say Anna wants to one day have more kids, and Pratt feels that the increasing demands of his career would make it difficult for him to devote sufficient time to helping raise another infant.
It’s a sad situation, and we sympathize with the drama queens and kings of social media, who declared grieved the death of love as we know it in hilariously maudlin tweets.
Fortunately, it seems Pratt and Faris are committed to working out an amicable co-parenting relationship, and friends say they’ve separated in the most civil way possible.
However, every breakup offers a unique set of challenges, particularly as the former partners move on and begin dating again.
And we’re guessing Anna is less than thrilled by news that Chris is already spending time with a new lady friend.
The Daily Mail has photos of Chris boarding a private jet with a mystery blonde last week.
The woman has not been identified, and for all we know, she could be Chris’ sister.
But whoever she is, it certainly seems that she and Chris are close.
After all, sharing a private jet isn’t really something one does with a casual acquaintance.
Pratt appeared at the 2017 Teen Choice Awards on Sunday night, and many felt that the Guardians of the Galaxy star was showing signs of distress.
“There is a reason that there was major bags under his eyes at Teen Choice,” an insider tells Hollywood Life.
“It’s because he hasn’t been able to sleep since everything went down. It’s legitimately been a very sad time and he has been crying about it.”
Meanwhile, Faris addressed the split publicly for the first time on a new episode of her podcast that debuted today.
“Hey dear listeners, I just want to thank you all so much for all the love I’ve been receiving, and I truly love you,” the actress told fans.
Friends say Faris and Pratt are both holding up as well as can be expected given the circumstances.
