Alicia Silverstone’s marriage is ending after twelve years, as the actress' rep confirms she has split from husband, Christopher Jarecki.
“They still deeply love and respect each other and remain very close friends but have mutually decided to separate after being together for 20 years. They have a son together who they will continue to co-parent,” Silverstone’s rep shared in an official statement to the press.
The Clueless star and Jarecki began dating in 1997. They dated for eight years before getting married in a Lake Tahoe ceremony in 2005. Their son, Bear Blu Jarecki, was born in 2011. Silverstone made headlines when her son was a toddler for feeding him like a bird, meaning she chewed up food then spit it into the boy’s mouth. The video went viral and caused some serious backlash for the actress.
Both Silverstone and Jarecki are vegans and advocates promoting a vegan lifestyle. She has even written two vegan cookbooks, The Kind Diet and The Kind Mama, with the help and support of her husband. Being an activist for animals and living a vegan life has become the actress' second act in life.
Before becoming known as Alicia Silverstone’s husband, Christoper Jarecki was best known as the front man for the punk band S.T.U.N. He also had his own radio show for a while, A Musical Journey with Christopher Jarecki, where he discussed the music industry. However, since meeting his soon to be ex-wife, Jarecki has also become a huge animal rights activist.
Since news they were ending their marriage broke, Silverstone has been flooding social media with photos of her and Bear on a Hawaiian vacation. She has not mentioned the split, nor has she been seen with Jarecki in public since last fall. He has not commented on the end of their marriage either, on social media or in a statement. Fans can next see the actress in the new Paramount Network show American Woman.
Another celebrity couple has called it quits after 20 years together. Alicia Silverstone and Christopher Jarecki are the latest Hollywood couple to part ways. 2018 is only just beginning, but Hollywood splits seem to be making headlines every day! Here is hoping this is not a trend for the year, yikes.
