Is J.Law behind Chris and Anna's split?

Amy Stevenson

It was the news that shocked fans and confirmed that love was dead, but was another woman the reason behind Chris Pratt and Anna Faris' marriage ending?

If the Twittersphere has anything to say about it then yes, with Jennifer Lawrence finding herself in the middle of the couple's break-up after fans took to the social media platform to suggest Chris' Passengers co-star was the reason he and Anna called it quits on their eight year union.

"I can't believe Chris Pratt and Anna Faris are splitting up this is all Jennifer Lawrence's fault," one fan tweeted after the news broke on Monday, while another added it was only a matter of "weeks" before Chris and Jen go public with their new relationship.

"I give it 6 weeks before it's announced Jennifer Lawrence & Chris Pratt are dating after his split from Anna Faris," the fan tweeted.

Although there is no evidence to suggest that Jennifer played a role in the shock split, fans continued to wildly speculate that the 26-year-old had hooked-up with the Guardians of the Galaxy star.

"Jennifer Lawrence broke up Chris Pratt's marriage lol," fans continued to tweet. "Watch chris pratt and jennifer lawrence be a thing."

At the time they were filiming the sci-fi flick, reports suggested the 38-year-old actor had hooked-up on set with his co-star.

Anna later addressed the rumours calling them "devastating" and adding she and Chris had been "blindsided" by the whispers.

"For us it was like, 'What the heck. This has been blindsiding to us. We have an incredible relationship. [But] it has been weirdly stinging," the 40-year-old actress said at the time.

Anna went on, telling Fox News that until it happened to her, she always believed the gossip about celebs having affairs on-set.

"I have always kind of believed that part of the rumours of celebrity couples were sort of true because they had never been a part of my life. I thought 'Maybe there is a kernel of truth to that.'"

Fans were also quick to note the awkward exchange between Anna and Jen at the 2016 premiere of Passengers, where it seemed there was tension between both women as they embraced on the red carpet.

Chris and Anna confirmed on Monday via a statement on Facebook that they would be legally separating. The couple are parents to four-year-old son Jack.

"Anna and I are sad to announce we are legally seperating. We tried hard for a long time, and we're really disappointed," the statement read.

"Our son has two parents who love him very much and for his sake we want to keep this situation as private as possible moving forward. We still have love for each other, will always cherish our time together and continue to have the deepest respect for one another."

Love is dead. Permission to stay in bed and cry granted.
