Actress Drew Barrymore divorced her husband Will Kopelman recently after being in a relationship for four long years. However, she admits that she needs a while to start dating someone new.
Barrymore and Kopelman’s relationship is great even after the divorce as they have confessed about being good friends for the sake of their children. The pair has been spotted multiple times even after their separation.
Let's know the full story.
Barrymore tied the knot with Kopelman in June 2012, but according to reports, their relationship got messed up soon after they got married. A close course claimed that Barrymore’s hippie nature had become unbearable for Kopelman. The source also accused Barrymore of not being a normal housewife.

Despite the fact that Barrymore and Kopelman had been living apart for past six months before their official separation, their divorce actually got finalized on 3rd August 2016.
Barrymore and Kopelman are parents to two angelic daughters Olive, three, and Frankie, two. There was no rivalry over their daughter’s custody as their divorce statement had an agreement of co-parenting their daughters. They both said that their girls are their first priority.

During an interview, Barrymore and Kopelman said that they both were unhappy towards the legal separation of their family. They said:
'Divorce might make one feel like a failure, but eventually you start to find grace in the idea that life goes on.’
Barrymore also opened up saying that she feels like a failure as it is not like a breakup where you accept that things didn’t work out and move on, but divorce is the biggest failure.

You might be unaware that Kopelman is Barrymore’s third husband as she was previously married to Jeremy Thomas in 1994 at an early age of 19. Barrymore and Thomas got divorced within two months. After that, she married Tom Green in 2001, but sadly it also lasted for only five months.
