LATEST: Neighbours of movie star KATE WINSLET say she dumped husband JIM THREAPLETON weeks ago. The TITANIC (1997) star today (4SEP01) announced that the couple have split after three years of marriage.
But neighbours say the sexy actress moved out of their family home in Surrey, south England, several weeks ago - taking daughter MIA to her former home in North London. Her London neighbour MARTIN LOUIS, a 48-year-old barrister, says, "She is staying here. I see her almost every day. I think she has been here for about six weeks. "
Winslet and Threapleton - a film director - are believed to have split after weeks of bitter rows, but her spokesman ROBERT GARLOCK insists the separation was a friendly one. In a statement he says,
"No other parties are involved in this amicable and respectful separation. Their daughter Mia will remain first priority for both of them. " (IG/WNWCAN)
