Italian beauty Bellucci announced on Monday (26Aug13) that her 14-year marriage to French star Cassel was over.
The couple met in 1996 on the set of acclaimed movie l’Appartement and wed quietly in 1999 in Monaco.
Both actors have confirmed they split by "mutual agreement".
They share two daughters, seven-year-old Deva and Leonie, three.
The split is Bellucci's second - she was married to photographer Claudio Basso for four years in the early 1990s.
