LOS ANGELES, Oct 19 — Tobey Maguire and wife Jennifer Meyer have just joined the ranks of other Hollywood couples who have called it quits.
According to reports, Maguire and his wife are breaking up after nine years of marriage. The pair are parents to daughter Ruby, nine, and son Otis, seven.
“After much soul searching and consideration we have made the decision to separate as a couple,” the couple reveal in a statement released following the news.
“As devoted parents, our first priority remains raising our children together with enduring love, respect and friendship.”
Us Weekly quoted a source as saying: “They are committed to remaining friends for their children and wanted to wait to make sure of that. They went back and forth on this decision but realized this is where the relationship is and they simply grew apart.”
Maguire and jewellery designer Meyer met in 2003. They tied the knot in Hawaii in September 2007.
