Christian Slater's marriage split
13:30 24 January 2005
Christian Slater has split from wife Ryan Haddon.
The Hollywood actor moved out of the couple's London home into a small one-bedroom apartment at the weekend after four-and-a-half-years of marriage.
Slater and Ryan, 32, moved to the UK last summer after the heartthrob landed the lead role in West End play 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest'.
It is believed Ryan struggled to adjust to life in the capital and is now allegedly planning to move back to the US with the couple's two children, according to Britain's Sunday Telegraph newspaper.
However, the 35-year-old actor is said to be enjoying life in London and plans to further his stage career there.
A spokesman for Slater has confirmed the split saying: "They are having a trial separation."
According to a friend, the split has left Ryan and her estranged husband completely devastated.
The pal said: "Christian loves England but Ryan never really felt at home. They are both very sad."
The star met Haddon in 1998 and they married two years later, after he convinced he had overcome his battle with drink and drug addictions.
However, Slater has been spotted out partying frequently since relocating to London, and has been linked to string of lapdancers in the last 12 months.
