Goths all over the world are crying into their Christmas pudding (more than usual) with the news that Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter have broken up. As Carter's rep tells People, the pair "separated amicably earlier this year together and have continued to be friends." Together since 2001, Burton and Bonham Carter never married, instead choosing to live in neighboring London townhouses connected by an "elaborate walkway." The former couple will share custody of their two children.
