Mandy Moore and Ryan Adams confirmed their split this weekend. Here’s the statement from her publicist:
"Mandy Moore and Ryan Adams have mutually decided to end their marriage of almost 6 years. It is a respectful, amicable parting of ways and both Mandy and Ryan are asking for media to respect their privacy at this time."
No reason has been offered so far. But, um, you know. You’re not blind. Apart from that though, was it a surprise?
I’ll never forget how he broke up with her about 7 or 8 months or so before they got engaged because he was pissy about the attention their relationship was attracting. You remember? He actually wrote a letter to the tabloids, bitching about the scrutiny. And at the very the end, he cited his desire to “remain punk as f-ck” as a reason for ending their relationship.

Later he grovelled his way back into her heart. But, God, didn’t that leave such a stench of vain asshole in your mind?
