This is the real deal, the nightmare before Christmas. At least for the fans of who could very well be the most interesting celebrity couple: Helena Bonham Carter and Tim Burton. And for the couple as well, for sure.
Representatives of the couple have confirmed the break up, saying that, “Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter 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.”
So it’s not exactly right before Christmas, but you get the gist.
Naturally, fans have taken to Twitter to express their feelings about this news.
From total despair…

Don't know if I can feel sorry for #HelenaBonhamCarter regarding her divorce. I mean… she did kill Sirius.

Everyone’s throwing their two cents in.
What do you think about the Helena Bonham Carter and Tim Burton split? Is this indeed indicative of a sad, sad world with no hope for love, or is it “just one of those things”?
