First it was Tom and Katie.  And if you haven’t already heard, the gossip world was rocked again recently with the split of one of the most well-known, iconic pairings of our generation.   Mike and Ike have gone their separate ways, and more details are slowly leaking out. 

The news first broke on their Facebook and Tumblr pages. 

I know it’s hard to believe, but yes – Mike and I are over.” said Ike in a recent blog post.  “It is what it is. We just …don’t work anymore. Some call it creative differences? Whatever.”

Mike’s take? “We don’t agree on the candy. My red, his red, my lime, his lime, my box ideas, his box ideas. So over it. Instead of all this hassle, now I’m just gonna jam.”

Going forward Ike will pursue his love of art and Mike will focus on music.  In fact, Mike has already produced a music video.  The timing of the release suggests that he took a page out of Katie Holmes’s break-up handbook and his plans were well laid weeks before the official break.   Check the video out here:

I asked Mike straight-up about whether or not he had been plotting to leave in a recent exclusive, and whether or new tracks were laid down alongside “Strawberry or Die” before Ike had any idea.

“I don’t want to get into that.  Before.  After.  What’s the difference?  Me and Ike, we were done when he ditched me on our launch anniversary for some Parisian broad.  Flew the redeye to Paris and came home a week later talkin’ about all these French artists, and how he wanted to paint one day…” 

Ike wasn’t immediately available for comment. 

Meanwhile, Hollywood has been reacting to the break.
This is big.  It could even affect the markets.
