LOS ANGELES, April 6: In a surprising turn of events, Hollywood power couple Sacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fisher have confirmed their decision to part ways after being together for twenty years. The actors took to social media to make the announcement, revealing that they jointly filed for divorce last year.

The couple, who share three children, initially met in 2001 and became engaged in 2004. Sharing the news with a poignant message alongside a picture of themselves in tennis attire, they wrote: “After a long tennis match lasting over 20 years, we are finally putting our racquets down.” The announcement was made via Baron Cohen and Fisher’s Instagram stories on Friday.

In their statement, the former couple emphasized their commitment to privacy, stating, “We have always prioritized our privacy, and have been quietly working through this change. We forever share in our devotion and love for our children. We sincerely appreciate your respecting our family’s wish for privacy.”

Baron Cohen, known for his iconic characters such as Ali G, Borat, and Bruno, rose to fame in the 1990s. Fisher, on the other hand, gained recognition for her roles in films like “Wedding Crashers” and “Confessions of a Shopaholic,” following her stint in the Australian soap opera “Home and Away.”

However, recent controversies have surrounded Baron Cohen, particularly in light of allegations made by Australian actress Rebel Wilson in her memoir. Wilson accused Baron Cohen of subjecting her to situations she found “derogatory” and “humiliating” during the filming of his 2016 movie “Grimsby.” In response, Baron Cohen’s legal team has vehemently denied the claims, presenting evidence to counter Wilson’s allegations.

The memoir, initially set to release in the UK on Thursday, has been postponed to April 25th following the legal dispute. Despite the challenges, both Baron Cohen and Fisher have continued to pursue their respective careers in the entertainment industry.

The news of their divorce marks the end of a chapter for the beloved couple, leaving fans and admirers to reflect on their enduring love story and the challenges that ultimately led to their separation.
