Tim Burton And Helena Bonham Carter Split After 13 Years
Hollywood couple's separation is reported to be amicable...
The director of movies such as Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands and Alice In Wonderland and his actress partner had been together for 13 years.
Although the news has broken just before Christmas, it seems they have been apart for some time.
A rep for Bonham Carter told People that they "separated amicably earlier this year and have continued to be friends and co-parent their children".
They met in 2001 when Burton directed Bonham Carter in Planet Of The Apes.
They have two children together - an 11-year-old son Billy and a seven-year-old daughter Nell.
