  • rADar

    I don’t usually believe the BI..but I saw one and they were the guess.

    sad.. just goes to show that you don’t know anything about these people. Wonder what happened. They seemed so happy.

  • flex

    Why many celebrity couples split after having babies? Look at Miranda and Orlando now.

  • tara

    So so sad…they were so great together. Nothing lasts anymore…
    god I hope we don’t see him with some 20-year-old bimbo next week.

  • Barbie

    This is awful news so sad for their cute little boys.

  • OK

    Come on people wake up! This is so common in planet Hollywood. Truth hurts…

  • helena

    NO :’(

  • Amanda

    Can no one in Hollywood hold it together?

  • alisa

    so the blind was right about him cheating??
    is no one faithful?

  • 4

    @AMY: It won’t ruin their lives forever, don’t be silly. Living apart is better than the children witnessing a loveless marriage or one with many arguments.

    Sad. You never know.

  • lil

    I don’t know why people are quick to dismiss Blind Items, a lot of them are true and get solved, even years later. The only reliable BI site is BlindGossip. They are usually right.

  • princess

    its not a matter of holding it together. in the average real world, people have no means (money) to leave the other person, thats why it happens alot in hollywood, cause they “can”. dont need to be stuck in a loveless marriage forever like some folks out there. be happy. leave if you gotta.

  • Yohji

    Well I’ve lost faith in humanity if these two can’t even stay together.

  • noob

    I’m absolutely heartbroken, I LOVE this couple so much.

  • willanka

    Sad, seemed solid. Although Lainey’s blind item kind of prepered me for this.

  • KissThis

    Sad :(

  • hm

    agree about blind item — just confirmed that there was no other person involved but im sure there was a blind a while back that said he cheated with christina applegate? (i suppose if the cheating didn’t break the marriage up it means that a third party wasn’t involved?)

  • @19

    But not all blind items are creating equal. I honestly think Lainey is about the only one that tends to be spot on. She was right about this, Heidi Klum, Uma Thurman.
    EVERY other blind is the typical story/claim/bs – secret gay, secret slut or drug mule. Only the names change.

  • Samm

    WHAT?! this cannot be possible!

  • MR

    Sad .

  • gillian

    they seemed so perfect for each other, that’s really sad… if they can’t make it who can?

  • minah

    There’s no hope for anyone now.

  • anumah

    I love reading this .I am an older successful single man at present .I need an older woman who can love me back .I also uploaded my hot photos on Ŵėalthyluv. Ϲ○М…under the name of Craig..the largest and best club for seeking CEOs, successful and sexy people.users over 30 .if you girls see this comment,i hope you will check my photos out there.maybe you are the one whom i’m looking for!!LOL

  • KissThis

    I really don’t think either of them would cheat. Would they? The rumor of him cheating with Christina Applegate seems completely false to me.

  • tammi

    @KissThis: i think he did. just because a couple seems happy on the surface doesn’t mean a thing. and now that one blind was solved i’m sure the others about them will be 2.

  • Meh

    what!?? oh no.

  • Boona

    WHAT!?! NOOOO!! This is so SAD. They are a perfect comedy team, and they have two sons! I will pray they overcome their troubles and reunite as a family.

  • Emma

    WHAT?! Celeb breakups are usually so routine, but this is shocking. Wow.

  • A

    This was lainey’s blind item last week! Damn she’s reliable. And according to her no third party involved!

  • elanor*

    @A: yes because the third party didn’t break them up.

  • Yadahoochie

    Its true: Hollywood destroys all life and everything good in it.

  • lana

    what? no…they were one of my favorites =(

    (@Amanda: sadly, no one can and no one will ever will.. I am praying for my two other favorite couples will last

  • Yadahoochie

    You can’t have two successful people in Hollyweird trying to do anything traditional!!! Silly rabbits!!

    Hollywood laughs at marriage and throws your life an eight ball, some hookers, and a cool million bucks and says, “Get the hell out of your stupid marriage, idiot!!” “So speaketh Moloch!!” Then POOF, it’s hooker Fridays and you’re knew deep in blow.

    And you don’t care.

  • Yadahoochie

    Christina Applegate isn’t a home-wrecker you tools. The woman beat cancer, you think she’s going to repay that good fortune by wrecking lives??


  • alana

    @Yadahoochie: firstly, grow up and secondly no one is calling her a home wrecker, it was on blind gossip which is why every person is phrasing it like a question.. and someone who has/had cancer is incapable of cheating? thats stupid and ignorant.

  • Sam

    So sad, seemed like such an awesome couple.

  • Amy


    Umm…she cheated on her husband. Your point is invalid.
