The couple welcomed a daughter Matilda in October 2005 and bought a home together in Brooklyn, New York.
After reports of their break-up emerged over the weekend, Larry Williams admits he received a phone call from the actress’ mother, Carla, about the split.
Larry, 64, tells the Sydney Daily Telegraph, “We’ve known about their troubles for a while but it’s always a very difficult thing in life when these things happen.
“They are both very talented artists and they live with their hearts. I feel tremendously for her and for him and hope they will find what they want in life.
Larry is currently in Australia appealing a U.S. order to be extradited to face tax evasion charges.
