The Real Reason Tobey Maguire Is Getting Divorced

Spider-Man star Tobey Maguire and his wife, jewelry designer Jennifer Meyer, married in September 2007 in Hawaii, according to People, after having dated since 2003. The couple went on to have two children, daughter Ruby and son Otis. But sadly, like an abundance of Hollywood marriages, they split up in 2016. 

In a press release given to People announcing their initial breakup, Maguire and Meyer stated: "After a lot of soul looking and consideration we now have made the choice to separate as a pair. As devoted mother and father, our first precedence stays elevating our youngsters along with enduring love, respect and friendship." At the time, an insider cited by the outlet claimed that Maguire, a.k.a. Leonardo DiCaprio's bestie, and Meyer had been "living separate lives for a while." Meanwhile, another source alleged to Us Weekly, "The choice to end the marriage was not sudden. They are committed to remaining friends for their children and wanted to make sure of that. They went back and forth on this decision but realized this is where the relationship is, and they simply grew apart." 

Four years have passed since the couple's separation, and per TMZ, Meyer officially filed for divorce on Oct. 30, 2020. So, why has Tobey Maguire's wife finally decided to call it quits for good? Keep on scrolling for details.

It was time for Tobey Maguire and wife Jennifer Meyer to move on

At the time of their initial split, an insider revealed to People that actor Tobey Maguire is "extremely private and prefers to stay home," while wife Jennifer Meyer is a "very social" person. "They haven't been happy together for a long time," the source went on to allege, "but they are great parents and they love their children."

Since calling it quits in 2016, both have been linked to different partners: Maguire with model Tatiana Dieteman, with whom the paparazzi spotted him out and about in photos published by the Daily Mail in May 2020. The previous year, Meyer was said to be romantically involved with NBA agent Rich Paul, but it's unclear if they're still together, per Extra

Despite their apparent differences, Meyer honored Maguire in an Instagram post on Father's Day in 2020, giving props to the actor for being an amazing father. "To the best baby daddy," she captioned a sweet family photo. "All I can say is no matter what happens in life, to relationships etc.... choose a dad for your kids that you can count on forever. This one right here is my best friend and the greatest dad to our babies. I'm sorry Tobey, I know you hate Instagram, but every once in a while I like to brag to everyone about how special you are. Happy Father's Day." 

Relationships and divorces can be tough, but it seems that Tobey Maguire and Jennifer Meyer already have the co-parenting part down pat.
