It looks like Salma Hayek and François-Henri Pinault still have things to hash out about their separation and future of their daughter.

According to sources close to the actress, it was Salma who decided to end the relationship, fed up with her partner’s absence in the relationship. “It was the straw that broke the camel’s back. She couldn’t live like that anymore,” said a close friend to the site Esmas.com.

But unlike other celebrities, the couple is willing to maintain a friendly relationship and keep their daughter’s best interest in mind. “They’ve stayed friends because of their daughter. He’s enamored with the little girl, and he doesn’t want to miss out on raising her, so it doesn’t make sense for him and Salma to not get along,” confirmed the close friend.
