So shocking! Tim Burton and his partner of 13 years, Helena Bonham Carter, have decided to split up.
Tim Burton & Helena Bonham Carter Split After 13 Years Together
The two, who never actually married, first met when Tim directed Helena in 2001’s Planet of the Apes.
Over their lengthy courtship, the couple has worked on countless movie hits together, including Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, Alice in Wonderland and Dark Shadows.
The couple “separated amicably earlier this year and have continued to be friends and co-parent their children,” Helena’s rep told PEOPLE. “We would ask that you respect their privacy and that of their children during this time.”
