Sacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fisher

Sacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fisher are going their separate ways.

After 13 years of marriage, the pair announced their split on Friday, April 5, sharing a joint message to their respective Instagram Stories to deliver the news.

"After a long tennis match lasting over twenty years, we are finally putting our racquets down," they wrote in the statement, along with what appears to be a throwback photo of the former couple dressed up in tennis gear.

Fisher, 48, and Baron Cohen, 52, who wed in 2010, revealed in the announcement that they filed for divorce in 2023, though the official date of separation is unclear.

"We have always prioritized our privacy, and have been quietly working  through this change," added the duo, who share three children.

"We forever share in our devotion and love for our children," they continued before concluding, "We sincerely appreciate your respecting our family's wish for privacy."

Fisher and Baron Cohen first met in 2001 during a party in Sydney, Australia. They became engaged in 2004, shortly before reaching rising fame with their hit films, Wedding Crashers (2005) and Borat (2006), respectively.

They welcomed their first child together, a girl, in October 2007. Their second daughter was born in the summer of 2010, just months after the pair tied the knot that March.

They welcomed their third child, a son, in March 2015.

The news of the pair's divorce comes on the heels of reports from earlier in the week about Rebel Wilson's accusations against Baron Cohen made in her new memoir, Rebel Rising.

Wilson, 44, wrote about having a negative experience with Baron Cohen when they worked together on the 2016 film, The Brothers Grimsby, claiming the actor bullied and sexually harassed her during filming.

The allegations were denied by Baron Cohen via his rep, who said in a statement, "While we appreciate the importance of speaking out, these demonstrably false claims are directly contradicted by extensive detailed evidence, including contemporaneous documents, film footage and eyewitness accounts from those present before, during and after the production of The Brothers Grimsby."

“Throughout this entire period, she was treated with the utmost respect and empowerment and was welcomed as a collaborator in all creative areas," the statement further claimed, per People.
