“Everyone in the family is distraught over this but the sad fact is they’re really not in a good place. At this point the word is that they’re literally on the brink of a divorce," the source told

“This isn’t a new problem, there have been some big issues for a while. They’ve been in counseling and they’re still going, but overall it seems to be the end of the road. They love each other very much and always will but they haven’t been the way they used to be for a while now. They used to be the most passionate couple, they couldn’t keep their hands off each other. But they haven’t been intimate in months and rarely even sleep in the same room these days. It’s not good."
