Fans of Chris Pratt and Anna Faris have furiously turned on one of his former co-stars to accuse her of being the reason for the pair splitting.
The Hollywood couple shocked many when they announced their split on social media in the early hours of Monday following eight years of marriage.
But fans were quick to theorise that Oscar winning star Jennifer Lawrence, 26, could be a contributing factor in the couple’s decision to divorce.
Chris and J-Law starred opposite each other in the 2016 Sci Fi drama Passengers – with some fans making the leap to suggest the pair grew too close on set.
Other theories include Chris’ punishing work schedule – he recently said he had spent months on the road, forcing him to take half a year off.
Taking to Twitter following the announcement of the split, many have accused J Law of getting between the two.
One tweeted: “I can’t believe Chris Pratt and Anna Faris are splitting up this is all Jennifer Lawrence’s fault.”
Another wrote: “Jennifer Lawrence broke up Chris Pratt’s marriage lol”.

While others are predicting the two will become an item, with one writing: “watch chris pratt and jennifer lawrence be a thing.”
Chris and Anna’s joint statement regarding their separation made no reference to any third party being behind the split.
They said: “We are sad to announce we are legally separating. We tried for a long time, and we’re really disappointed. Our son has two parents who love him very much and for his sake we want to keep this situation as private as possible moving forward. We still love each other and will always cherish our time together.”
And while there appears to be no basis for trolls accusing J Law of being a factor in the break up, the suggestion that the actress had embarked on an affair with Chris as they filmed Passengers was already vehemently denied last year.
Anna spoke to Fox News about the rumours – admitting they had left her feeling ‘insecure’ and said she would often believe gossip about other A List stars when it was reported.
“This has been blindsiding to us. We have an incredible relationship. [But] it has been weirdly stinging,” Anna said last December.
For many, the concept of true love died on Monday 7 August 2017 with the announcement that Anna and Chris’s marriage was over.
Fans were shocked as the pair always seemed to represent a truly solid relationship – something rare at the best of times, let alone in a Hollywood love story.
