According to People, their statement said: “Despite a deep love and respect for one another, we have realised that our current paths have taken us in opposite directions.

“There is no anger or animosity, quite the contrary.

“We have made this decision together through an immense amount of respect and consideration for one another and request that you do the same in understanding that we will not be sharing any additional details or commenting further.”
