Ioan Gruffudd confirms split from Alice Evans as they ‘remain committed to their children’

Ioan Gruffudd has confirmed his split from wife Alice Evans, after claims he walked out on their family.

102 Dalmatians star Evans took to Twitter yesterday to announce that her husband of 13 years was ‘leaving the family’, and expressed her confusion at the situation.

In a now-deleted tweet, the actress wrote: ‘My beloved husband/soulmate of 20 years, Ioan Gruffudd, has announced he is to leave his family, starting next week. Me and our young daughters girls [sic] are very confused and sad.

‘We haven’t been given a reason except that he ‘no longer loves me’. I’m so sorry.’

While Gruffudd did not comment on the tweet, the pair issued a joint statement to People, reading: ‘As you can imagine, this is an incredibly difficult time for our family and we remain committed to our children. Thank you for respecting our privacy.’

Gruffudd, 47, and Evans, 49, met on the set of 102 Dalmatians in 2000, when Evans was in a relationship with Olivier Picasso, the great-grandson of Pablo Picasso.

They began dating, and in 2007, the couple got married in Mexico after Evans gave her beau an ‘ultimatum’.

The Fantastic Four actor told the Independent: ‘Alice has been very patient with my procrastinating with my male ways!

‘She did give me somewhat of an ultimatum – a gentle nudge – which was the best thing she could do, really.’

The pair went on to have two daughters together, Ella Betsi, 11, and seven-year-old Elsie Marigold.

Following Evans’ tweet about her husband leaving her, she claimed that Gruffudd was the one to delete the post.

The Vampire Diaries star tweeted: ‘Hi there. I didn’t delete the tweet from a few hours ago about him leaving.

‘He did. From my account. And hell yes when I am being gaslit […] then hell yes I will wash my linen in public.’

This tweet has also been deleted.

Over the past few years, Gruffudd has spent time away from his family with work, having filmed the ITV drama Liar in the UK and the drama Harrow in Australia.

Evans and their daughters reside in Los Angeles.
