Everything Is Over Between Gina Torres And Laurence Fishburne, But They Are Not The Only Couple That Split This Year

Date December 21, 2017 17:32

Some celebrity couples are so iconic, it is impossible to imagine them apart, but break-ups happen when you expect them the least. Laurence Fishburne and Gina Torres were among those who decided to split in 2017.


How it all began

Fishburne and Torres met on the set of the film The Matrix Reloaded. In 2002, they got married, and in 2007, Gina gave birth to their daughter Delilah. The two have starred in several movies together – first in The Matrix Reloaded and later in the TV series Hannibal.



The couple seemed to have an ideal relationship. But in September 2017, Torres and Fishburne announced they decided to break up after 15 years of marriage. The actress shared the news in an official statement published in US Weekly.


With sadness in her heart, Gina confessed that last year, she and her husband started divorce proceedings. She promised that separation would not affect her family as they still respect each other and want to raise their daughter together.

There are no bad guys here. Only a love story with a different ending than either one of us had expected.


It seems the actress has already moved on. The same month, paparazzi caught Torres in the company of a stranger, with whom she was kissing in one of the cafes in Los Angeles. There was no engagement ring on her finger.

Other shocking celebrity splits

This year, Fergie and Josh Duhamel announced that they decided to break up. They did not want to make their split public as long as possible so that they could go through a hard time. But the spouses claim to be friends and are ready to raise their son together.

To the surprise of many fans, Anna Faris and Chris Pratt announced the separation a couple of months ago. The ex-spouses noted that they still love each other and asked the fans not to make a fuss over it for the sake of their son Jack.

Twilight star Taylor Lautner ended his relationships with actress Billie Lourd after eight months of a seemingly ideal relationship. The reason for parting might be Billie’s desire to concentrate on her career as much as possible. Despite the split, they remain good friends.

We hope there will be fewer celebrity splits in the next year.
