The statement said: “It is with a heavy heart that we want to let you know that we separated some time ago last year. We are telling people now because speculation is unhelpful at best, and dangerous at worst. As we think is obvious, we continue to fully support each other; there is no acrimony, no story and no one else involved.”

“We have never played out our relationship publicly, so we don’t feel it’s too much to ask for privacy. We also ask people to be mindful that there are two children involved, and their welfare is our main concern now. Thank you. X”

The couple married in 2011 and have one child together, 3-year-old Tom.

Johnny has another child from a previous relationship.

Comedian Johnny retweeted the statement from Maia’s account.
