Will Kopelman: Five Things to Know About Drew Barrymore's Soon-to-Be Ex-Husband

Posted on

Drew Barrymore and husband Will Kopelman have decided to call it quits, multiple sources confirm to PEOPLE.

The former couple – who tied the knot in June 2012 – has two daughters together, Olive, 3, and Frankie, 23 months.

“They’ve had marriage issues for a while,” says a source close to the family. Kopelman, another source adds, is “devastated” by the divorce. Page Six first reported the split. Reps for the couple have not yet commented.

In the wake of their divorce, here are 5 things to know about Kopelman:

1. He’s a New York City native.
Kopelman grew up in the Big Apple and graduated from Boston University in Massachusetts.

2. Coco Chanel connection? Kind of.
The 38-year-old is the son of former Chanel CEO Arie Kopelman. It just so happens that his mother’s name is Coco. His sister is author Jill Kargman, who’s written books such as Momzillas and The Ex-Mrs. Hedgefund. His grandfather is a World War II vet – and Kopelman wears his dog tags.

3. He’s got aim.
Not only is Kopelman an avid snowboarder, but he likes to shoot guns, too. He takes aim at targets at the shooting range, though, not animals. A source previously told PEOPLE his passion for shooting comes from watching “lots of Miami Vice” when he was a kid.

4. He’s a movie buff.
Kopelman is a movie fiend who loves all Woody Allen, David Lynch and Steven Spielberg movies.

5. He’s a top art advisor.
Kopelman is a successful consultant with high-profile clients from Robert Pattinson to Death Cab for Cutie’s Ben Gibbard to Silicon Valley billionaires.
