Toni Collette And Dave Galafassi Split After 20 Years Another Hollywood Breakup!

Hollywood divorces are huge headline makers. No matter the age of the relationship, separation, divorces, and breakups offer a bad episode for the stars and instill sympathy in the followers.

Well, another gloomy episode has surfaced from Hollywood as a famous couple has decided to separate after 20 years. Yes, 20 long years. If you think their longstanding relationship is the hardest part, just wait for the reason that prompted the separation.

Shortly after pictures of her longtime husband Dave Galafassi kissing another woman emerged, Hollywood star Toni Collette, 50, announced her breakup with the 44-year-old actor.

The event came on Wednesday, after a mutual decision to part ways. Tracing back, Galafassi met the Sixth Sense actor while playing drums in an indie rock band and since has been very close.

But the lovely relationship came to an end on Wednesday when Dave Galafassi was seen swimming at Manly with chiropractor Shannon Egan. Since the photos got surfacing on the internet, stories began to emerge of the mystery woman.

“PEACE & LOVE” The Tearful Statement

However, after extensive research and rechecks, some mainstream media outlets confirmed that the unknown lady was a 41-year-old integrative chiropractor from Sydney with over 15 years of medical experience and a passion for healthy living, with specific skills in women’s health, mind-body connection, and children’s health.

After a series of speculations, the Australian actress announced Wednesday that she and Dave were divorcing in a joint statement on her recently activated Instagram account.

In the statement, the couple said, they are announcing the divorce with “grace and gratitude.” They continued on an emotional note, “We’re united in our decision and part with continuing respect and care for each other”.

The photo of a flower pattern bearing the words “PEACE & LOVE” was uploaded along with the tearful statement.

It should also be noted that Collette shared a quote on her Instagram Story before the announcement post, which said, “No matter what your current circumstances are, if you can imagine something better for yourself, you can create it.”

Even though the direct reason was not spelled out by the couple, some fans on the internet tried to fill in the puzzle as they saw the paparazzi photos of Dave kissing along with the Instagram Post and doubtful quote.

The longstanding couples, who got married in 2003 and recently split their time between the US and Australia, have two kids together: Sage Florence, 14, and Arlo Robert, 11.

While Sage, the first child, was born in January 2008 after her pregnancy was announced the previous summer, Arlo Robert was born in April 2011 in Australia.

Toni made special mention of their children and the bond they shared, not forgetting to emphasize their significance by stating that they will “continue to thrive as a family”, albeit in a different form.
