After nearly 9 years of marriage, the 39-year-old actress filed for divorce on Friday in Los Angeles County Superior Court. It appears that the filing was really a formality, though. The two actually announced their separation on Instagram back in August 2021, with Kate adding that things will always be amicable between them:
“Our hearts are full because we’ve never been more in love with and grateful for one another than we are at this time. Michael and I have always made the decision to love one other throughout the last ten years. We still grip each other’s hands firmly as we did on the day of our wedding. Now, with more boldness, our eyes gaze into one another longer. We have learned to accept the fact that our love will always be there as a result of learning to let go. The link does not just stop existing. As the love grows, so does the heart.
“We know the 4 am calls are coming. Songs will be exchanged to communicate only what songs can do. We laugh as we plan for our next movie together and are excited to share our latest collaboration. We believe the most epic love stories are those which transcend expectation. Our greatest honor has been to experience love like this, and to continue to marvel at the beauty of love’s evolution. What happens when we reach the end of something and realize … we are just at the beginning. This is love. And we will drink that down.”
Kate has moved on with actor Justin Long since the news. While collaborating on a film in Arkansas in May 2021, the two initially ignited relationship rumours. In January 2022, a source later verified the couple’s connection and said they had been dating for some time:
They have been seeing each other for a while. They had gone on a few excursions together in secret. They both like travelling.
The insider continued, saying that although they aren’t concealing their relationship, they are “just very low-key and secretive about it.”
Their relationship has taken a serious turn recently. So much so that, on Chelsea Handler’s show, Justin acknowledged that he had “never experienced anything like this before… This has never happened to me. So, you know, I want to preserve and safeguard it. Even mentioning that he had discovered “the one,” he said to Nick Viall:
“I had reached a point where I felt at ease with myself. Though I wasn’t aware of it at the time, I was prepared for the one. I also met the other. I located.”
Meanwhile, Kate recently gushed about the Dodgeball actor in a birthday tribute, expressing her affection for him as follows:
“You were born today, and the world lit up brighter than it had ever known, and years later you met a girl whose life had been upended/rearranged, but you were patient and with time she fell in love now she has a glow (one that had been forgotten long ago), and she is so appreciative *more than you’ll ever know. Happy Birthday, @justinlong! You give me a smile so wide it hurts my face xx I want to express my gratitude for bringing me calm ever since we first met.
It appears like Kate wants to formally close the door on her relationship with Michael in order to go forward with her adoring relationship with Justin. Because they don’t have any children and separated amicably last year, it appears that their divorce won’t be as difficult.
