Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr. have been going strong ever since they met on the set of I Know What You Did Last Summer in 1997. But behind-the-scenes, the couple’s 13-year marriage is reportedly falling apart because of money and work issues.
“They’ve been at each other’s throats for a year now,” a source told OK! magazine. “It’s been a long, slow decline for them. At this point, it’s pretty clear they’re together only for the kids.”
Trouble in paradise kicked off in when the 39-year-old actor received spinal surgery, making his wife the breadwinner for their two children Charlotte, 6, and Rocky, 3, for longer than she expected. “She felt sorry for Freddie when he was bedridden, but then she noticed that he was in no rush to get back into acting,” the insider revealed.
From playing video games all day to spending money on “childish things,” the 38-year-old “wants him to grow up.” The source added, “If he doesn’t, it will be the end of them.”
