Chris Pratt has taken the next step to make his split with Anna Faris official by filing for divorce today in a Los Angeles courtroom.
The actor cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the filing. The two announced they were splitting up in August of this year. It appears that Faris also filed, only shortly after Pratt and the documents were almost identical.
Farris has stated that the two of them have remained friends despite the split. They share a 5-year-old son, Jack, whom both are seeking joint custody of. Supposedly one of their points of contention was their different parenting styles.
Despite several sources saying that the split remains very amicable, the overall reason for the break-up seems to still loom. There was apparently a bit of “professional jealousy” that had its hand in the two of them having problems.
When they got married, Farris was the more bankable, recognizable star in the couple. After being apart of a successful show and having some key breakout movie roles, Pratt has now secured a huge chunk of stardom.
A source revealed: “Chris changed so much. His fame changed their dynamic publicly and in private. Anna feels like she lost her voice throughout their marriage like she lost her sense of self.”
They both also seemed to feel a lot of pressure due to the fact that they were in such a high profile marriage that was beloved by their fans. They may have crumbled under that kind of pressure.
Faris has started dating successful cinematographer Michael Barrett. They may be getting serious because, aside from the several outings they’ve had in L.A, they’ve also been spotted wandering around Italy looking like a very in love pair.
Pratt, on the other hand, hasn’t explicitly started dating anyone, however, there were rumors surrounding him and his co-star Jennifer Lawrence getting close on the set of their movie Passengers.
Jennifer recently got into and then out of a relationship with director Darren Aronofsky. So it’s feasible that these two may try to give it a chance now that they’re both single.
We’ll wait to see what unfolds.
