Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson’s ‘silent six month split’

Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson’s ‘silent six month split’

Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson have reportedly gone through a “silent separation” over the past six months.

The Hollywood couple announced their split earlier in July (16), with a spokesperson stating they intended to remain friends.

The pair first began dating in 2006, the same year Diane divorced her first husband, French actor and director Guillaume Canet. But an insider has revealed her break-up from Joshua was a long time coming.

“They’ve gone through a ‘silent separation’ over the last six months and have been living largely apart,” an insider told Britain’s Grazia magazine. “Eventually it was Diane who drew a line under things. Josh was always hopeful that they could recapture the spark, and Diane’s decision to move from Paris to New York in March was seen as last-ditch attempt the salvage things. Sadly it wasn’t to be.”

German actress Diane, 40, hinted at the split when she celebrated her recent milestone birthday, writing on Instagram “It’s my party and I cry if I want to #anewbeginning.”

The source added that the Troy actress is fiercely independent and didn’t enjoy moving to New York.

“She’s also disillusioned with Hollywood and wasn’t interested in attending events as part of a power couple, she needs her own space,” the insider said. “The move was make or break and, in the end, it broke them. Joshua is heartbroken.”

Diane’s close friendship with Norman Reedus has been called into question since her relationship breakdown, though neither party has commented on this. As it stands Diane and 38-year-old Joshua really do plan to stay in each other’s lives.

“They had their fair share of issues but they fully intend to stay friends,” the source shared.
