Tim Burton and his long-term partner, actress Helena Bonham Carter, have split up after 13 years of relationship.
The film director and actress, who never married, have a son aged 11 and a 7-year-old daughter.
The couple first met when Tim Burton, 56, directed Helena Bonham Carter, 48, in 2001’s Planet of the Apes.
A representative for Helena Bonham Carter told People Magazine that they “separated amicably earlier this year and have continued to be friends and co-parent their children.”
“We would ask that you respect their privacy and that of their children during this time.”
Since working together on Planet of the Apes, Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter have teamed up on several blockbusters, including Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Sweeney Todd, Alice in Wonderland and Dark Shadows.
Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter together earlier this week at Cats the Musical at London Palladium.
For years the film director and actress lived in separate homes right next door to each other, something Helena Bonham Carter said worked well for them.

Isla Fisher stole the show from her husband Sacha Baron Cohen in daring plunging white gown by Willow with triangular cut out panels which accentuated her slim figure and red hair at the London premiere of Les Misérables.
But it must have got a little chilly as the pair posed up and ever the gentleman, Sacha Baron Cohen offered his wife a chivalric hand and helped her into her black jacket.
Although all eyes may have been on Isla Fisher, 36, her 6ft 2in husband perhaps had the best view of her daring satin gown as she shone on the red carpet.
Sacha Baron Cohen, who plays Monsieur Thénardier alongside Helena Bonham Carter, did his best to look dashing next to his stunning wife.
There was a general theme of innocence as star of the show Anne Hathaway wore a glamorous pearl Givenchy gown that boasted sequin detail and off the shoulder sleeves.
The floor-length gown fell perfectly over her figure, hugging her hips before flowing out around her feet but the real drama of the dress came from the back.
The gown boasted a dipped hemline that scooped to the small of her back, leaving plenty of skin on show.

Sacha Baron Cohen’s onscreen wife Helena Bonham Carter , who plays Madame Thénardier, looked just as quirky as usual in a black gown.
Isla Fisher recently said being “Mrs. Borat” can be rather embarrassing.
“I cannot tell you how embarrassing he is in social situations,” Isla Fisher said.
“To him, there’s no difference between the awkward gaffes he deliberately makes as a comic, and the terrible faux pas he innocently commits as my husband.”
