I’m sure we all just heard the sound of Ross Geller whining “We were on a break!”
I’m almost positive that when you decide to become a famous person, you’re delivered a gift basket containing the card of a divorce lawyer and a coupon for 20% off your first divorce. First marriages just don’t seem to last in Hollywood. David Schwimmer might be finding that out. 50-year-old David and his 31-year-old artist wife of almost seven years Zoe Buckman announced in a statement to UsWeekly that they’re separating.
“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. 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.”
David and Zoe have a 5-year-old daughter named Cleo.
Based on my knowledge of 50-year-old rich dudes coming out of their first marriage, David is a prime candidate for a mid-life crisis rebound. Zoe was 22 when they got together. That means if David rebounds with someone younger, which 99.8% of rich dudes tend to do, he’s looking at the 19-21 bracket. I just pictured a 50-year-old David getting dragged to Coachella by someone whose style icon is Kylie Jenner and who only knows Friends from Netflix. Oh boy, good luck with that, Ross.
