David Schwimmer Personal Life
In 2007, Schwimmer and British artist Zoë Buckman began a relationship. In June 2010, Schwimmer married Buckman in a small private ceremony. In 2011, the couple had a daughter. The couple announced in April 2017 that they were “taking some time apart”.
In June 2006, Schwimmer won a US$400,000 defamation lawsuit against Aaron Tonken, a former charity fundraiser. Tonken claimed Schwimmer had demanded Rolex watches in order to appear at his own charity event, a claim that Schwimmer had denied.
Schwimmer is an active director of the Rape Treatment Center in Santa Monica, which specializes in helping victims of date rape and child rape. He has also campaigned for legislation to ban drugs such as Rohypnol and GHB. In November 2011, he gave the Scottish charity Children 1st permission to screen his film Trust to commemorate World Day for Prevention of Child Abuse and Violence against Children.
In 2012, he rebutted two longstanding rumors: one that he appeared as a soldier on a train in Biloxi Blues (1988), saying, “No. I don’t know why that’s on IMDb, but I never was in that”, and the other that he is related to dancer Lacey Schwimmer, saying, “No, not at all. Please set the record straight. I guess it’s a natural assumption because we have the same last name, but no. I’ve never even met her”.

The Friends star was not home at the time of the incident, TMZ reported, which came when Rosa fell from a ledge between Schwimmer’s property and a neighbor’s.
Rosa might have been under the influence of any drug and lost his footing, authorities told TMZ.
Police told the outlet that Rosa used a brick to break a window in order to get someone’s attention to be physically removed from the area.
