Actress Toni Collette (“Hereditary”) has announced that she will be separating from husband, Dave Galafassi, after 20 years of marriage. The separation was announced on the artist’s Instagram this Wednesday (7/12) and was motivated by Galafassi’s infidelity.
The decision came a day after images emerged of Galafassi kissing another woman on a beach in Sydney, Australia. The Daily Mail published photos that also show Galafassi and the woman sitting together, holding hands in the water and exchanging several kisses.
On her Instagram, Collette shared a joint statement with her husband in which she said, “It is with grace and gratitude that we announce that we are divorcing. We are united in our decision and part ways with mutual respect and care.”
The text states that children Sage Florence (14 years old) and Arlo Robert (11 years old) are now her priorities.
“Our children are of the utmost importance to us and we will continue to thrive as a family, albeit in a different way,” she added.
He concluded, “We are grateful for the space and love you have given us as we have evolved and gone through this transition peacefully. Thank you so much.”
Before posting the split announcement, Collette shared a quote on Stories that said, “No matter what your current circumstances are, if you can imagine something better for yourself, you can create it.”
Collette and Galfassi got married in a Buddhist rite in 2003.
