AceShowbiz - Colin Firth and Livia Giuggioli's breakup and make-up stayed hidden until a few years later, but that didn't make it less shocking. In 2018, they revealed they had gone through a private separation several years prior but then reconciled. This was made public at the same time they were legally battling Italian journalist Marco Brancaccia, who was accused by the pair of harassing her with "threatening" messages.
In a bombshell confession, Livia admitted to having had an affair with Marco during the period she and Colin separated. "The King's Speech" actor and the Italian producer at the time joined forces to fight against their stalker, but the scandal eventually took a toll on their marriage as they announced they decided to separate in December 2019, ending their 22 years of marriage. The former spouses remain close and often work together as she dubbed him "the best partner in crime ever" in his 60th birthday tribute.
