It’s Over! Sacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fischer to Divorce After 13 Years

Sacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fischer are calling it quits after 13 years of marriage.

The Borat actor and the Wedding Crashers star announced the split on Friday via Instagram. They shared a photo which showed them donned in matching tennis attire and likened their marital journey to a prolonged tennis match spanning over two decades.

“After a long tennis match lasting over 20 years, we are finally putting our racquets down,” they wrote. “We have always prioritized our privacy, and have been quietly working through this change. We forever share in our devotion and love for our children.”

“We sincerely appreciate your respecting our family’s wish for privacy.”

The couple expressed gratitude for the public’s understanding of their desire for privacy amidst this personal chapter.

They will continue to co-parent daughters Olive, 16, and Elula, 12, along with their son Montgomery, 9.

Having first crossed paths at a gathering in Australia back in 2002, Cohen, 52, and Fischer, 48, tied the knot in 2010 in Paris.

Cohen, renowned for his comedic prowess, has left an indelible mark with roles in “Borat,” “Brüno,” “Hugo,” the 2012 adaptation of “Les Misérables,” and “The Trial of the Chicago 7.”

Fischer, on her part, has graced the screens in notable films such as “Confessions of a Shopaholic,” “Wedding Crashers,” and Baz Luhrmann’s “The Great Gatsby.”

News of their split follows bombshell claims recently made by “Pitch Perfect” star Rebel Wilson, 44.

She made allegations late last month against Cohen concerning her memoir, “Rebel Rising” in which she recounts a negative encounter while working with him on 2016’s “The Brothers Grimsby.”

Wilson asserts that Cohen proposed a scene involving an inappropriate scene involving her fingers, a request she claims wasn’t part of the script and to which she declined.

In response, Cohen’s representative has refuted Wilson’s claims, stating, “While we acknowledge the significance of speaking out, these categorically false allegations are directly refuted by extensive, detailed evidence, including contemporaneous documents, film footage, and testimonies from individuals present before, during, and after the production of The Brothers Grimsby.”
