Hollywood star Thandiwe Newton ‘splits from husband Ol Parker’ after 24 years

Thandiwe Newton has reportedly split from her husband of 24 years Ol Parker following her dramatic exit from the Magic Mike franchise recently.

The 49 year old Hollywood actress, who has three children with the 52 year old director, is said to have flown from London to the US last week.

According to The Sun, her team is hoping to get her support as it is feared she's in "a bad place".

OK! Online has approached Thandiwe's representatives for further comment.

Earlier this month, the star made the decision to step away from her unspecified role in the new Magic Mike movie. Salam Hayek is said to have come in as her replacement.

Warner Bros said she had “made the difficult decision to step away from the production to deal with family matters.”

Meanwhile a source told PageSix that she had been "acting strange on set, she has been highly strung".

They continued: "Her apparent breakdown caused so much disruption, it became clear she couldn’t play the role.

“There is a lot going on in her personal life, she and her husband have separated. She seemed so stressed, she even brought her two pet rabbits to her hotel for emotional support.”

According to the publication, Thandiwe has also fired her UK agent as they shared: "She fired her UK agent of three decades, and then her US agent Gaby Morgerman flew in from Los Angeles to try to calm things down."

Now, it's believed the WestWorld star has been urged to seek help as they added: “Thandiwe’s team wants her to go to rehab for mental health support.
