Back in May, the entire showbiz was talking about the fact that Laurence Fox divorced Billie Piper. Though at the time few people would have thought it was something this big, it seems that Fox is still struggling with the separation. In an interview he gave for The Mirror, he admitted that he still has problems sleeping, even after six months from the break-up. This is happening despite the fact he tried to use medication in order to help him sleep.
The 38-year-old actor, who is famous for his role in “Lewis”, a drama produced by ITV, told the paper that his mind is just “whirring round”, even though he goes to bed the same time with his children, but he just ends up lying awake and only getting two or three hours of sleep.
In May, he announced the divorce from the 34-year-old actress on his Facebook page. The couple has two children, Winston, who is seven, and Eugene, who is four. They have been married for more than 8 years. They both said that there were no other parties involved in the decision of their split. However, he admitted that this outcome was not what he would have expected when he was young.
Perhaps this is the reason for which he cannot get over this, because, as he also declared, he grew up with this idea that marriage is forever. However, he says that now he starts to feel like he’s getting back on track. Even so, he said that this whole episode shook his belief in the chemistry between two people.
The two initially met when they performed on the stage in a play called “Treats” in 2006, and they said it was love at first sight. However, it seems that it wasn’t forever, since they split up after such a long relationship. There is still hope that Laurence Fox will get back on track and pick himself up.
