Dang it, this one seemed like it had staying power, too. “Mandy Moore and Ryan Adams have mutually decided to end their marriage of almost six years,” reps for the now-exes say in a statement. “It is a respectful, amicable parting of ways, and both Mandy and Ryan are asking for media to respect their privacy at this time.” OK, two things: First, there’s no need to brag about how laid-back and easygoing your breakup is. We get it, you’re so cool. And second: Adams and Moore — or at least their reps — get major points for correcting using “media” as the plural noun that it is. To help you cope with this news, think back to when they first got together and how much that seemed to make absolutely no sense. Good times.
Adams, for his part, seemed pretty chipper performing on “The Late Late Show” before word of the split go out:
