Fisher and Baron Cohen, both renowned figures in the entertainment industry, had been considered one of Hollywood’s most stable couples. However, news of their separation has shed light on underlying issues that had reportedly been brewing for some time.

Insiders suggest that the strain of the pandemic, coupled with the decision to relocate from Los Angeles to Fisher’s hometown of Perth, had taken a toll on their relationship.

The couple share three children, daughters Olive and Elula, and son Montgomery.

The couple broke the news of their separation through matching statements, alongside a candid photo of themselves in tennis attire, holding racquets.

“After a long tennis match lasting over twenty years, we are finally putting our racquets down,” the statement read.

“We have always prioritised 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.”
