Sacha Baron Cohen and his Australian actor wife Isla Fisher have announced they are divorcing.

The pair, who live in Britain, have three children together. They had been married for 14 years.

The split announcement comes during a messy spat with Australian actor Rebel Wilson who has accused Cohen of sexually harassing her on set. Baron Cohen has denied the claims.

Baron Cohen and Fisher, who was raised in Perth, co-ordinated Instagram story posts on Friday (UK time).

Showing the two of them in tennis gear, they stated they had filed for divorce last year.

“After a long tennis match lasting over twenty years, we are finally putting our racquets down,” the post stated.

“In 2023 we jointly filed to end our marriage. We have always prioritised our privacy, and have been quietly working through this change.

“We forever share in our devotion and love for our children. We sincerely appreciate your respecting our family’s wish for privacy.”

The New York Post’s Page Six column quoted a source that said Baron Cohen had approached lawyers in Hollywood late in 2023 but the diverse was filed in the UK.

It’s been a rollercoaster week for Baron Cohen after Wilson said he had asked her to stick a finger up his anus for a scene during the filming of the movie Grimsby, which she out right refused.

Wilson devoted an entire chapter of her book Rebel Rising to her time working with Baron Cohen.

When promoting the memoir, the Pitch Perfect actor noted that he was the reason she has “a ‘no a**holes’ policy” with the people she works with.

A spokesman for Baron Cohen vehemently pushed back.

“While we appreciate the importance of speaking out, these demonstrably false claims are directly contradicted by extensive detailed evidence, including contemporaneous documents, film footage, and eyewitness accounts from those present before, during and after the production of …. Grimsby,” they said.
