After 13 years of marriage Modern Family star Julie Bowen and her husband, Scott Phillips have called it quits, according to People magazine. Seems like their marriage had been on the rocks for quite some time because she was once reported as saying that she was 'tired to divorce'.
In 2016, Julie explained why her hubby hadn’t joined her at the Emmys - which also happened to be the day of their 12 year anniversary – saying: "He’s come every year, he’s been so supportive and this year he was playing in a tennis tournament and I wasn’t nominated as an individual so I said, ‘What do you want to do on our anniversary?’ I mean it’s such an honor to be nominated and to go, but it’s tough to be a purse holder."
The couple were last photographed on the red carpet at the Los Angeles LGBT Centre 47th Anniversary Gala Vanguard Awards in September 2016. The gorgeous actress, who describes herself as a “fair-to-middling wife,” on Twitter shared this seemingly lighthearted anecdote about marriage at the Los Angeles LGBT Center’s Gala Vanguard awards in 2016: “We watch all these people get married and split up and go, ‘Wait, did they get married after us or before us?'” she told Us Weekly. “We outlast all these people. The answer: We’re too tired to do anything else!”
The 47-year-old actress married Phillips, a real estate investor, in September 2004. The duo has three children and she joked to the magazine that managing Oliver, 9, and twins John and Gustav, 7 was quite exhausting. “It isn’t easy getting four males to sit down at a table,” she says. “They just drool and eat. They’re like, ‘I’m just going to walk back and forth, drop crap on the floor while I’m eating.’ I’m like, ‘Sit!’ Gussy, he eats everything and he’s hungry after. He’s always eating so much!”
According to People, Bowen and Phillips were last spotted together with their three sons at a Harlem Globetrotters game in Los Angeles in February 2017.
Although sad, it’s possible this separation is a long time coming. Scott and Julie have been “living separate lives for a while now,” a source with In Touch shared in December of 2017.
They have “tried to keep it together for their three sons,” the insider said, and added that this relationship is “hanging by a thread.” Sadly, it now seems that thread has finally broken.
