Golden Globe-nominated actor Tobey Maguire and wife Jennifer Meyer have announced their separation after nine years of marriage.
In a statement to People, the couple said, “After much soul searching and consideration we have made the decision to separate as a couple. As devoted parents, our first priority remains raising our children together with enduring love, respect and friendship.”
The 41-year-old Spider-Man actor met Jennifer, 39, the daughter of former President & CEO of Universal Studios/current NBCUniversal vice chairman Ron Meyer, in 2003. In 2007, they wed in Hawaii.
Shortly before the wedding, Jennifer, a jewelry designer, told USA Today the following: “Let’s just say this is truly the best time of my life. I’m walking on air. I’m getting married, starting a family and have an amazing company.”
Tobey and Jennifer have two children: nine-year-old Ruby and seven-year-old Otis.
Page Six reports that sources have confirmed the couple’s split was brewing for “many months.”
In the late ’90s, Tobey was a member of Leonardo’s infamous “P***y Posse.”
