‘Twilight’ star Nikki Reed and her husband, ‘American Idol’ Season 10 finalist Paul McDonald, have decided to separate after just over two years of marriage.
How sad! Nikki Reed, 25, and husband Paul McDonald, 29, have announced their separation after just over two years of marriage. Nikki is best known for her role as Rosalie Cullen in the mega-successful Twilight franchise, and Paul was thrust into the spotlight as a finalist on American Idol Season 10. But don’t worry; they’ll continue to make beautiful music together. Read on for all the details!
Nikki Reed And Paul McDonald Announce Split
It looks like their split has been in the pipes for a while; Nikki’s rep told People that the pair “have been living separately for the past six months due to work obligations.”
The rep continued that Nikki and Paul “will continue to share their love of music, and are still working on their debut album, I’m Not Falling, releasing in 2014. They remain best friends and look forward to their continued journey together.”
It’s great to hear that the split is amicable — however, we can’t imagine how awkward that studio time is going to be, moving forward.
Nikki Reed And Paul McDonald Met In 2011 And Married Later That Year
Nikki and Paul met on the red carpet premiere of Red Riding Hood in March 2011. A total whirlwind romance, they fell in love and married shortly thereafter on Oct. 13, 2011.
Not long before the pair tied the knot, Nikki once told HollywoodLife.com exclusively that “[Paul] really is into taking me on dates… So every night he is like, ‘let’s go on a date!’ I’m like, ‘dude we are in our backyard,’ and it feels like a date! Every time we have dinner, he takes all the pictures from around the house and sets up the table with all the pictures and candles and all of the flowers.” It’s too bad that these two couldn’t work it out — it seems like the pair were once incredibly in love.
