Sacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fisher Announce Divorce

April 5, 20243 Mins Read

Sacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fisher are getting divorced.

The couple announced Friday in Instagram Stories on their respective accounts that they had filed for divorce in 2023 and were sharing the news now.

“After a long tennis match lasting over twenty years, we are finally putting our racquets down,” their matching statements read over a photo of them in tennis outfits. “In 2023 we jointly filed to end our marriage.”

“We have always prioritized our privacy, and have been quietly working through this change,” the statement continued. “We forever share in our devotion and love for our children. We sincerely appreciate your respecting our family’s wish for privacy.”

Cohen and Fisher met at a party in 2000 in Sydney. In an interview with The New York Times, the Borat star recalled their first encounter, noting, “She was hilarious. We were at a very pretentious party, and me and her bonded over taking the mick out of the other people in the party. I knew instantly. I don’t know if she did.”

The two got engaged in 2004 and announced they were expecting their first child in 2007. They tied the knot in Paris in March 2010 and welcomed their second daughter that summer. They had their third child and first son in 2015.

The news of Cohen and Fisher‘s split comes on the heels of Rebel Wilson calling the Dictator actor an “asshole” and said he tried to stop her from writing about him in her memoir, Rebel Rising. The two starred alongside each other in The Brothers Grimsby.

“It felt like every time I’d speak to SBC, he’d mention that he wanted me to go naked in a future scene, I was like, ‘Ha, I don’t do nudity, Sacha,’” Wilson recalled in her memoir.

She added that a production assistant told her that she needed to film an additional scene for the film, which Cohen co-wrote and produced. When they were shooting, he allegedly “pulls his pants down … SBC says very matter-of-factly: ‘Okay, now I want you to stick your finger up my ass.’ And I’m like, ‘What?? … No!!’ I was now scared. I wanted to get out of there, so I finally compromised: I slapped him on the ass and improvised a few lines as the character.”

Cohen denied Wilson’s allegations in a statement by his rep shared with The Hollywood Reporter that read, “While we appreciate the importance of speaking out, these demonstrably false claims are directly contradicted by extensive detailed evidence, including contemporaneous documents, film footage, and eyewitness accounts from those present before, during and after the production of The Brothers Grimsby.”
