“The great @michaelsheen & I consciously uncoupled over Christmas. I mean, not ‘over Christmas’ — like that wasn’t the fight that ended it,” the comedian tweeted on Monday, February 5. “No fight. We just live in different countries & it got hard. Felt we should just tell y’all so u stop askin, ‘How’s Michael/How’s Sarah?’” (Silverman’s wording is a nod to Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin use of “conscious uncoupling” when they announced their divorce back in 2014).

“As a comic always working & on the road I have had to decide between motherhood & living my fullest life & I chose the latter. Men don’t have to do that. I’d so love to be a fun dad, coming home from the road & being my best fun dad self,” Silverman wrote at the time. 

She continued, “So this is just a lil f–k all y’all bc u can’t be a woman w/out sacrifice & that’s the fact jack. And I [love] my comedian brothers that acknowledge this truth. They’re my family & for a lot of us women comic sisters, our only family.”
