Monica Bellucci has split from her French actor husband Vincent Cassel.

The Italian actress and her French actor husband wed in 1999 and have two daughters together, Deva and Léonie.

Monica’s publicist confirmed the pair are no longer together to Italian newswire service ANSA today.

At the time of going to press no further details were available.

Monica, 48, is currently shooting On the Milky Road in Serbia, while Vincent’s latest film Beauty and the Beast is in post-production.

Deva is the couple’s eldest child and was born in 2004. Last year, Monica explained her decision to become a mother later in life.

“It was the perfect time. In my life, I do things late. I need to be calm, and to know and feel things are right. I’m sure there are great 20-year-old mothers, but I wasn’t into children at that age. Now I feel differently. I can stay with them without feeling as if I’m losing something," she told Style magazine.

“I would have been disappointed,” she added when asked if she would have minded not having kids. "But it’s different for every woman. I have so many friends who don’t have children and are happy. Being a woman isn’t about having children. But for me, I needed to go through the experience.”
