Casey Affleck And Summer Phoenix Split After 10 Years – See Statement
Casey Affleck and Summer Phoenix have split after nearly 10 years of marriage, Gossip Cop confirms.
Affleck and Phoenix are “amicably separated,” the actor’s rep tells Gossip Cop, adding that they “remain very close friends.” The former couple began dating in 2000 and wed in June of 2006.
They have two children together, and have been co-parenting since separating a few months ago. Oldest son Indiana, 11, was born in 2004, two years before Affleck and Phoenix wed. They went on to welcome another son, Atticus, in 2008, two years after getting married. He is now 8.
Like Affleck, Phoenix also comes from a famous family. The estranged spouses were first introduced by her brother, actor Joaquin Phoenix. Their breakup follows Ben Affleck’s own separation from wife Jennifer Garner.
A reason for Affleck and Phoenix’s split has not been made public. As Gossip Cop previously reported, in 2010 he settled two sexual harassment lawsuits filed by women he worked with while directing the Joaquin Phoenix documentary, I’m Still Here. He had been accused of abusive and erratic behavior by a female producer and cinematographer, who separately sued for $2 million. After reaching an undisclosed agreement, the suits were dismissed to the “mutual satisfaction” of all parties, his camp said at the time.
Affleck and Phoenix last posed at an event together in 2014. They are pictured above at an Out Of The Furnace screening in 2013.
