When it comes to celebrity splits, there’s normally a heartfelt statement involved insisting the pair will always be friends and yadda yadda yadda.
Although it came sometimes get a bit too elaborate – remember the “conscious uncoupling” of Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin circa 2014?
Oh the days.
Anyway. Another celebrity couple, movie director Eli Roth and model Lorenza Izzo, just announced they’re divorcing after four years of marriage.
But it may be the most hilariously honest way ever.
- Selena Gomez ‘sceptical’ Justin and Hailey will make it up the aisle
- Kris Jenner ‘couldn’t even afford a tomato’ after split from Robert Kardashian
Of course, they stuck to the original celebrity breakup script when posting their joint statement on Instagram.
“We’ve had an incredible journey together, we love each other very much, and will remain the best of friends. We are grateful for the six wonderful years together but have decided to go our separate ways to have the most fulfilled, joyous lives we can.”
Yep, they hit nail on the head for celeb split statements.
But it was the last part of their statement which is so far from the iconic “consciously uncoupling” statement.
“We wish to continue working together creatively and are ultimately separating so we don’t f***ing kill each other.”
Eli and Lorenza have worked together on a number of films and let’s hope that can continue, now that they’re not going to “f**king kill each other”.
