Whilst they seemed happy and at ease with one another, they were affectionate but not overly intimate with each other.Their divorce was finalized in December 2011 and the exes continued to work together on Dexter.Nobody slandering the other, no hostility, but for all appearances simply a transition back into friendship. Julia has denied those allegations and there doesn’t seem to be any solid evidence for this.It would, of course, be a sound reason for a break-up, but it would generate a lot more resentment and hurt between the exes than there has evidently been.
Especially when the colleagues in question work very closely together as was the case with Michael C.
It does happen, but perhaps a little less on TV shows than on movie sets.
But splitting up and getting a divorce all the while continuing to work together is pretty much unheard of. There was no negativity between Michael and Jennifer. Some unreliable rumors purported that Michael had a brief affair with Julia Stiles, who was on the show for one season.
Few women would continue to work and have a friendship with their ex-husband, if the reason for the divorce was cheating.
It is also said that Jennifer had wanted to start a family with Michael, who had been all for it up until he was diagnosed with cancer.
As late as November 2010 they were seen together looking like a happy couple, but only a month later they announced that they had filed for divorce and had been separated for some time.
