Drew Barrymore and Will Kopelman have just completed their legal separation. So, the formally married couple is officially divorced. The fact that the official separation has been concluded was also confirmed by a source close to the former couple.
“It’s all over,” the insider said according to the New York Daily News. Both Drew and Will filed for divorce and both cases have been concluded now. Drew filed her papers for the legal separation on July 15 and Will filed similar requests on July 18. It is unclear why the two stars filed their own divorce papers in two separate cases.
However, it is important to mention that the divorce was concluded fast because there were no issues raised by any of the two parties. Furthermore, since the split was uncontested, the two star did not have to appear in court. They both signed a divorce agreement they have previously reached. The fact that Drew and Will separated was actually unexpected, as they two have always seemed to be happy together.
Drew and Will are parents to two daughters, Olive, who is 3 years old and Frankie, who is only 2. The pair started to date in 2011 and wedded in 2012. However, they have been friends for years before they started to be a couple. Ever since the moment when they first revealed their separation, both Drew and Will claimed that their two daughters remain their number one priority.
When they announced their divorce back in April, the two actually said that although they are no longer a couple they will always remain a family. “Sadly our family is separating legally, although we do not feel this takes away from us being a family,” an official statement from the two indicated. “Divorce might make one feel like a failure, but eventually you start to find grace in the idea that life goes on.” “Our children are our universe, and we look forward to living the rest of our lives with them as the first priority,” the statement concluded.
This was actually the third divorce for Drew Barrymore, who has previously been married twice. Both marriages lasted under one year.
