On a break? David Schwimmer announces ‘time apart’ from wife

Is this a case of life imitating art?

Friends star, David Schwimmer, who played Ross Geller in the iconic 90s sitcom, has announced that he and wife, Zoe Buckman, are officially on a break.

The couple, who married in June 2010, confirmed the news in a statement to US Weekly on Wednesday.

 "It is with great love, respect and friendship that we have decided to take some time apart while we determine the future of our relationship."

The pair first met when David was directing the 2007 comedy Run Fatboy Run, in London. Zoe moved to Los Angeles shortly after to be with the actor.

According to The Daily Mail, the Friends actor had previously spoken of the personal difficulties that fame brings and admitted that stardom has impacted his relationships in the past.

David and Zoe confirmed that the well-being of their five-year-old daughter Cleo was their main priority going forward.

 "Our priority is, of course, our daughter's happiness and well-being during this challenging time, and so we ask for your support and respect for our privacy as we continue to raise her together and navigate this new chapter for our family."

We can’t help but see some similarities between the current situation and David’s famous on-again, off-again on-screen relationship with co-star Jennifer Aniston, and we can only hope that the pair will have a happy ending.
