“Pushing Daisies” star Anna Friel and actor David Thewlis have split, following rumors of Friel having an affair with her co-star Joseph Cross.
The couple was hit with cheating rumors after Anna was photographed embracing Joseph Cross, her co-star in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s," in 2009.
Both Friel and Thewlis denied the rumors, but just a year later, they have split. The couple have a five-year-old daughter named Gracie.
A source reports, “Things have not been great for a long time and they have tried to keep this quiet to protect everyone.
“It certainly did not help that Anna and David have been forced to live apart for so long, but there are other issues at hand that have made them realize the relationship was over.
“They do care about each other very much, and the most important thing now is that they both continue to be the best parents they can be for Gracie. They will have to see each other over Christmas at some point, but hopefully it will not be too painful.”
