Helena Bonham Carter and Tim Burton Break Up After 13 Years Together

It's over for Helena Bonham Carter and Tim Burton.

E! News confirms the two have called it quits after 13 years together. The pair, who never married, have two children together, son Billy, 11, and daughter Nell, 7.

"Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter separated amicably earlier this year and have continued to be friends and co-parent their children," Burton's rep tells E! News in a joint statement. "We would ask that you respect their privacy and that of their children during this time."

The 56-year-old director and the 48-year-old actress met in 2001 while filming "Planet of the Apes," which Burton directed.

After coupling up, the pair also continued their working relationship, teaming up for films such as 2003's "Big Fish," 2005's "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory," 2007's "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street," 2010's "Alice in Wonderland" and 2012's "Dark Shadows."

In October 2013, the duo found themselves at the center of infidelity reports after a very grainy photo appeared in the New York Post that reportedly showed the director kissing a mystery blonde.

Carter, meanwhile, instantly jumped to her partner's defense as speculation began to swirl and immediately slammed the report.

"This is absolutely nonsense," a rep for the actress told E! News at the time. "The pictures were taken whilst they were out and the large group includes family, friends and work colleagues."

Carter and Burton are known for their unconventional ways, as they reside in two adjoining houses in Belsize Park, London.

People was first to report the news of their split.
