The two publishing their joint breakup statement three days ago, saying, "We have lovingly chosen to separate as a couple. We fell deeply in love so many years ago and have had a magical journey together. Absolutely nothing has changed about how much we love one another, but love is a beautiful adventure that is taking us on different paths for now. There are no secrets not salacious events at the root of our decision — just two best friends realizing it's time to take some space and help each other live the most joyous, fulfilled lives as possible."

But since their announcement there have been reports that Channing had cheated and had somewhat of a drinking problem, with The Mirror stating, "Sources close to the Hollywood couple" believed Channing's "drinking and partying ways drove a wedge into their nine-year marriage." They even cited Channing interview with GQ from 2014 as ~evidence~, where he said, ""I probably drink too much, you know. My wife, that's what she bought into.… I'm probably a pretty high-functioning, I guess, you know, I would say, alcoholic, I guess."

The Mirror also went on to cite a 2015 report from Star that claimed Channing had some hella "flirtatious behaviour with other women while he was filming Foxcatcher" as the final nail in the coffin for the couple.
