A source told the New York Post's Page Six: “They’ve been having some difficulties, but they remain close for the sake of their kids.” Another source added, “Drew had a very rebellious and wild childhood, with no family around her, and while she is a very different person now, and a great mother, some of that can stay with you.”

Kopelman, 38, is the wealthy son of former Chanel CEO Arie Kopelman. The couple began dating in early 2011, later marrying in June 2012 in Montecito, California. Three months later they welcomed daughter Olive.

It’s the third marriage for 41-year-old Drew, who first tied the knot in 1994 aged 19 to bartender Jeremy Thomas, in a union which lasted less than two months. She then married actor and comedian Tom Green in 2001, which lasted five months.

Speaking about the split, a source told E! News on Friday (April 1st): "They were good friends who blossomed into something more. Drew felt, after dating so many guys who were wrong for her, that he would be good for her.”

“But she kind of always had a feeling it might not be forever. Then they had kids and she stuck it out for them. Because of what she went through as a child, she didn't want to break the family up. Now she feels like she needs to live her own life.”

Speaking about her marriage to InStyle last year, Drew said: "It was never really love at first sight. Will struck a lot of my pragmatic sides. He was someone who was always reachable on the phone, someone who was a classy human being, someone who had this incredible blueprint of a family that I don't have.”
