The former childhood star filed divorce documents in Manhattan yesterday, three months after the pair announced they were to separate.

Kopleman (39) is the father to Barrymore’s two children, Olive (3) and Frankie (2). While this is the first marriage for Kopleman, it is the actress’ third divorce.

The couple are planning to co-parent their children between Los Angeles and New York, where they were most recently based.

The couple wed in a back garden ceremony in her Californian home in 2012.

In a joint statement released in April the couple announced their break-up: "Sadly our family is separating legally, although we do not feel this takes away from us being a family

“Divorce might make one feel like a failure, but eventually you start to find grace in the idea that life goes on. Our children are our universe, and we look forward to living the rest of our lives with them as the first priority."

Speaking of the split in April a source told The Daily Mail: “She just didn't fit in”

When pregnant DrewBarrymore wed art dealer Will Kopelman, she wore a Chanel dress, designed by Karl Lagerfeld. She also wore Chanel fine jewellery. Her choice was no doubt informed by the fact that her new father-in-law was the former CEO of Chanel.
