Alice Evans has accused Ioan Gruffudd of “ghosting” her after the breakdown of their marriage.

The actor, 50, revealed earlier this year that the couple were parting after 13 years of marriage, sharing in a now deleted tweet: “Sad news. My beloved husband/soulmate of 20 years, Ioan Gruffudd, has announced he is to leave his family, starting next week.

“Me and our young daughters are very confused and sad. We haven't been given a reason except that he 'no longer loves me'.”

She has now posted a string of messages on Twitter claiming that Gruffudd has been ghosting her for months.

The star shared an email - which she said was from the actor and was regarding one of the couple’s daughters – and said she hadn’t spoken to him in a long time.

She added that it was “his choice”.

“I am not proud of myself for sharing this,” she went on.

“But please know it wasn't a calculated move, it was an act of desperation.

"There is only so much the human spirit can take."

She continued: “And I have been living like this, alone, in a pandemic, for 9 months. I still don't know why the love of my life and my best friend suddenly decided to end our marriage and then ghost me.

“I know my reaction to his initial announcement was not calm or dignified in any way.

“I did my fair share of crying, screaming, accusing. I begged and begged for at least some sort of running discussion, for the kids’ sake. That's my way of reacting to such a life-changing event.

"So he ghosted me.

"I have been ghosted for almost 10 months now.”

Evans and Gruffudd, 47, met on the set of 102 Dalmatians in 1999 and tied the knot in Mexico in 2007.

The pair have two daughters together – Ella, 12, and Elsie, eight.

After their split was made public, a representative for Gruffudd released a joint statement for the couple, which said: “As you can imagine, this is an incredibly difficult time for our family and we remain committed to our children.

“Thank you for respecting our privacy.”
