    Oh for heavens sake!

    Wow. They seemed so in love. Sad to see them split.

  • Alaia

    Didn’t think this would happen so soon (or at all, how naive I am), but apparently before he deleted his twitter he alluded to the end of their relationship. It got people talking, for sure.

  • nikky

    I did not see that coming

  • Anna

    That’s so sad…of all couples I thought they’d last.

  • mer

    NOOOOOO!! My favourite couple! They were supposed to be together happy forever!

  • Evan rachel wood

    I’d rather F#uck a women.

  • Luiza

    MUAHAHAAHHAHA I never liked Jamie with ERW.

  • Jamie Bell

    I’d rather F#uck a man. or anything else!

  • ShineOnYouCrazyDiamonds

    Does anyone care about Marriage, Family, or traditions anymore?

  • talia

    Did not see that coming

  • sexyback

    They are both ugly. Who cares.

  • Uh

    She must be calling Marlyn Manson now AHHAHHAHA

  • James

    This is just wrong. I mean who leaves a mother of your 10 months old child? And who leaves a marriage after one and a half year? What’s wrong with people?

  • Jim

    Jamie, call Genesis Rodriguez!!! U guys are the best couple ever!

  • Oi


    A lot of people do that. And who said he was the one that left her?

  • TFS

    Not surprised at all.

  • Yep

    Jamie is better off.

  • just me

    Shouldn’t have gotten married or had a child at all. Sometime its best to stay single. Even low key couple break up no one is spared. He was in the jumper movie. Shouldn’t have a child unless you are really ready. People just in get pregnant for no reason or marry too. Had a baby too quickly.

  • oops

    @Uh: Probably. He can give her the attention she needs so badly.

  • too bad

    She has a bad track record when it comes to relationships and even hooked up with a married guy at one point. So, no, not surprised.

    Hopefully they’ll be civil for the kid’s sake.

  • Perfect Couple

    If you went by their twitter accounts, you’d think they were all lovey dovey. Social media can be very deceptive.

  • GGGive

    Howw??? didn’t see this one coming… they always show their love on twittter theyyy we’re cutee

  • Adoring Fan

    @Evan rachel wood: Maybe she’ll hook up with Ellen Page? They’d be a cute couple.

  • sweetness

    Noooooooooooooooooo!..but why???

  • whatever

    Didn’t she cheat on him with Manson the first time they dated? I think they were just too young and she is rather immature.

  • lucas

    Evan is kind of slutty. She dated Jamie from 2004 to 2006. She broke up with Jamie to be in a miserable relationship with Marilyn Manson… at first, while he was still married with Dita Von Teese.

    That tom boy must be alone forever. I just hope Jamie to move on. He is so sweet and smart, check he’s interviews on youtube!!! ;)

  • Big deal….

    They look alike. I bet Clooney will last as long with his look alike.

  • Liz

    There should be someone who bans marriages between celebrities. It’s a shame for their baby and (that goes to all these Hollywood breakups) a shame for the institution of marriage. Just a shame. Stop getting married and having children if you can’t keep a family. All part of this new liberal way of life. “Let’s get married, have a kid and if we don’t like each other let’s just call it quits whenever”. This just shows how shallow and thoughtless these so-called celebrities can be. And I’m not refering to Jamie and Evan in particular, because maybe they belonged in that 2% of Hollywood couples that may actually had decent problems in their marriage. But out of all the divorces we hear about in Hollywood, how many do you think resulted from actual, decent, real-life relationship/marriage problems? Like I said above: I give it about 2%.

  • Alaia

    @James: What are you living in the 50s? It’s better they split up now and not in ten years time leaving them both miserable with a now 10/11 year old caught in the crossfire.

  • @29

    @Liz: Exactly the vows taken are supposed to be sacred, but are just meaningless for these celebs

  • Notafan

    I’m really sad to hear about this one. :(

  • Fbomb

    Well they got married because she got knocked up, right? So why is it a surprise?

  • Correct


    You are correct nowadays people give a ratz about that cause they say we live in modern times and those things are like not important anymore, otehr things are more important for those who do not care about that anymore.

  • Liza

    First Nikki Reed splits with her hubby, now this! The girls of “Thirteen” are not having a good year :(

  • Sophia

    She’s gay is why. Maybe she can be with Ellen Page, they’d be cute.

  • dee

    Im genuinely upset about this, I thought it was kinda cool, how they used to date and then broke and got back together and got married and had a baby, it all seemed so real and romantic ….guess not so much….sucks for the child though.

  • Lena

    After NEARLY two years? It’s pretty pathetic when JJ has to add the words “NEARLY” to extend a marriage. Is NEARLY two years supposed to be a long time in marriages? I hardly think so. But, to me, it’s typical. People get married because they are “so in love.” But is what people feel always marriage material love? Or that heavy handed romance love feeling of just feeling or wanting to feel like you just “get the other person and the other person just gets you” when, in fact, that is not true, but instead what you are feeling is the euphoria of having a great time and great sex? Seriously, I have seen lots of marriages at the end and people going through divorces over the years. And if there is one thing that I take from everything I have heard and seen, is that (in my opinion) there are human patterns. And, to me, the patterns are pretty common and span across relationships of all types. One of the patterns that I think is prevalent is that people get sexually involved way too quickly which can sometimes create false intimacy. That can sometimes create a bond that deters objective analysis of compatibility. It also can create a sense of ownership and urgency which causes people to ignore red flags that really should be deal breakers. I remember standing in line in the clerk’s office watching people get married. It took like only a few minutes; as opposed to the sometimes years to finalize a divorce. I personally believe that sex is not something people should just do after dinner and a movie. And, I personally think that people should do some serious compatibility analysis before allowing themselves to fall in love or fall into bed. So, people say, you can’t help who you fall in love with. But, from where I sit, and listening to people throughout the years, and the patterns I believe I have seen, I think that people often talk themselves into love after physical intimacy. And, I think that people would be less inclined to do that if they weren’t physically intimate so early on. And, if people are compatible then intimacy can grow when it is time to physically connect. That’s just me. Just my opinion.

  • Mercy

    I hope it is not because of my gf Ellen Page

  • Amy


    Maybe they were having an affair. ;)

  • Niagirl

    I saw it coming.

  • West

    ERW . What a bitch . She is breaking Jaime Bells heart . And breaking up her lovely little family . All so she can go off and have sex with other people . Ladies or fella’s it doesn’t matter . She should have thought about that before getting married and having a child . What a confused individual .

  • toni

    I think it’s impossible for actors to understand how hard it is to be married when they are always working out of town and are away from each other most of the time. You people shouldn’t judge. No one should judge each other.

  • Pepsi

    They were married about 1 1/2 years. It’s lame that the media is trying to extend it to 2 years.
    I figured they’d divorce but this was still pretty quick.

  • Weddednono

    when are people going to learn marriage is really only necessary for those living in very strict countries or gold diggers.
    what other logical reason is there for this primitive ceremony

  • @west

    who do you think you are/ going around throwing ALL the accusations at ERW?
    what makes you think he is not somehow to blame as well?
    or do you just hate other women.

  • @Liz

    you sound very arrogant .
    i know of more than a few non celebs who have been together 9+years then gotten pregnant-married and within 3 months separated then divorced .
    believe me it’s no more common for famous people to go though short marriages than for the public.

    your “im a member of the public so am therefor superior” act doesn’t really cut it.
    idk maybe your jealous of the money or the attention maybe your just a bored housewife and so therefor hates celebrity’s.
    however nothing you say makes you more important than anyone else.

  • Gina

    Not surprised. She always seemed to have one foot in the door and out the other.

  • Stillwaiting…

    For the day Aaron Taylor-Wood files for divorce, that would be a hoot. Let’s see how long until he snaps out of Sam’s feminist hold.

  • Cla

    Sad news :( I loved them together!
