Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter Break Up

Here’s a breakup we honestly never saw coming: Helena Bonham Carter and Tim Burton have split after 13 years of dating.

According to Yahoo, a rep for Helena said that the couple “separated amicably earlier this year and have continued to be friends and co-parent their children. We would ask that you respect their privacy and that of their children during this time.”

Although Tim and Helena never married, they do have two children together. They also did not live together completely, instead choosing to adjoin two houses together in London, guaranteeing that they each had their personal space if they needed it. Helena told the Radio Times in 2010: “We just have two houses knocked together because mine was too small. We see as much of each other as any couple, but our relationship is enhanced by knowing we have our personal space to retreat to. It’s not enforced intimacy. It’s chosen, which is quite flattering — if you can afford it.”

Although the two ended things at some point earlier this year, they seem to have remained close as both were in a photo Nicole Scherzinger posted to Instagram of them visiting her after a performance of ‘Cats.’

We wish both Helena and Tim all the best during what we can only imagine is a difficult time for everyone involved.
