On Sunday night, Hollywood’s favorite (former) couple, Chris Pratt and Anna Faris made a devastating announcement. The pair, who have been married for eight years, is “legally separating.”
Their break-up was announced on the “Jurassic Park” actor’s Facebook page, while Faris posted a screenshot of the text to her own Instagram account.
Anna and I are sad to announce we are legally separating. We tried hard for a long time, and we’re really disappointed. …
Chris and Anna share one child, a 4-year-old son named Jack, who will remain their number one priority as they transition from spouses to co-parents. Pratt wrote, in part:
“Our son has two parents who love him very much…”
Although the two didn’t get into details about what may have led to the separation, they did clarify that they “still have love for each other” and hold “the deepest respect.”
Sadly, however, that wasn’t enough:
“We tried hard for a long time, and we’re really disappointed.”

After the news broke, fans everywhere took to Twitter to say why they were disappointed…
People are now saying that the reason for Chris and Anna’s divorce is Hollywood starlet Jennifer Lawrence, who recently starred in the film “Passengers” alongside Chris.

Although the rumors are just that — rumors — it’s clear that fans who are heartbroken over Chris and Anna’s divorce are looking for anything to blame.
And, for now, Jennifer Lawrence is the only scapegoat in sight.
