Seriously, 2016 went to shit once Bowie died and it's just been a downward avalanche of awful since.

Entertainment Tonight broke the news to the world last night that Liev Schreiber and Naomi Watts, everyone's favourite 'normal' celeb couple, were separating after 11 years together.


Ay dios mio...

"Over the past few months we've come to the conclusion that the best way forward for us as a family is to separate as a couple. It is with great love, respect, and friendship in our hearts that we look forward to raising our children together and exploring this new phase of our relationship," they told ET in a joint statement. "While we appreciate your curiosity and support, we ask the press to be mindful of our children and respect their right to privacy."

The couple never married and have two children together, 9-year-old Alexander "Sasha" Pete and 7-year-old Samuel "Sammy" Kai.

Brangelina, Hiddleswift, Gaga and Taylor Kinney, Joshua Jackson and Diane Kruger, Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne and now Liev Schreiber and Naomi Watts. Did love ever exist?
