Nikki Reed & Paul McDonald: The Reason Why They Decided To Separate

Sadly, the reason for their split is what you might expect. “It came down to the normal marriage failures of money and career. He wasn’t making money and she wasn’t flourishing with her career after Twilight,” our HollywoodLife.com source revealed exclusively.

Nikki and Paul “ended up having to deal with that while being together at all times. They never did things for love anymore, it became a job for them to be together because it became all about work,” our source continued.

Nikki Reed & Paul McDonald ‘Definitely Took Each Other For Granted’

That’s so sad! It must have been incredibly stressful for them both. Don’t forget that Nikki once told HollywoodLife.com shortly before their nuptials that every time they had dinner together, it felt like a date, and that he was a huge romantic.

Our source who revealed the reasons behind their split also told us that Nikki and Paul “definitely took each other for granted and never fixed it while it was happening and that led to where they are now, separated.”

So sad!
