Crushes don’t last for 18 years, right? After almost two decades together, Ben Stiller and Christine Taylor are calling it quits, Star can confirm.
“It was a classic case of a man whose fidelity has been under question accusing his faithful partner of cheating,” reveals a source close to the couple, who married in May 2000 after meeting on the set of a TV pilot called Heat Vision and Jack.
With a reputation for leaving “directors rocking in a corner,” Ben, 51, is as famously controlling on a film set as he is off, especially when it came to the 45-year-old Brady Bunch alum.
“Christine grew tired of the accusations,” says the pal. “Especially when he’d put two stunning blonde personal chefs on his payroll. It was one rule for him and another for her, but the one thing Ben didn’t count on was Christine having had enough.”
