Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber are officially over!

After 11-years together, the stars have confirmed that their relationship has concluded.

The couple were never married, but spending 11 years of your life with someone is a LONG time.

Schreiber once referred to Watts in the media as his wife in attempt to play a prank. 

A joint statement confirmed the news of the split and we can hardly contain our emotions. 

“Over the past few months we’ve come to the conclusion that the best way forward for us as a family is to separate as a couple,” Schreiber and Watts said in a joint statement.

“It is with great love, respect, and friendship in our hearts that we look forward to raising our children together and exploring this new phase of our relationship.”

“While we appreciate your curiosity and support, we ask the press to be mindful of our children and respect their right to privacy,” the statement continued.

It sure sounds like things are ending amicably. Right?

It should be interesting to hear what really transpired before they called it quits.

There will no doubt be a lot of rumors about why it really ended. 

It was mere months ago that two appeared loved up at the 88th Academy Awards Ceremony.

It’s crazy how things can change so quickly. 

That was the same awards ceremony in which Liev proved he was the best dad in the world by taking his son as his date.

The surprising thing about the split is that Star Magazine was probably right all along about Watts and Schreiber.

There was allegedly a rift between the couple on the set of The Bleeder.

So much so that they apparently split as soon as production wrapped, but stayed together in the public eye until the promotional efforts for the movie were over. 

Maybe they knew fans would not flock to see the flick if they were over. 

Would anyone want to go see a movie with a couple who broke up? 

Probably not.

Watt and Schreiber are parents to Alexander (Sasha) Pete Schreiber, 8, and Samuel Kai Schreiber, 7.

The couple first met in 2005 and had an instant attraction to each other. 

So much so that Naomi made an excuse to be in New York to meet up with Liev and that’s how they got together. 

It sounds like a love story ripped straight from a teen drama… minus the breaking up part. 

Well, unless you’re on Pretty Little Liars.

The couples on that show get messed with all the damn time. 

2016 has not been the greatest year for celebrity couples. 

They’re dropping like flies at this rate and there’s no sign of that stopping any time soon. 

What do you think about the end of Naomi Watts & Liev Schreiber?
