It's been a tough summer for celebrity couples. Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are done, Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale have called it quits, and even Kermit has moved on from Miss Piggy to a pig named Denise. Now it seems that another celebrity couple has broken up: Jon Hamm and Jennifer Westfeldt are officially over, thus ending a sad summer of celeb splits.
Jon and Jennifer (ugh, even their names seem perfect together) were one of the longest-lasting couples in Hollywood. Though they never tied the knot, the couple was together for 18 years, which was long before Jon became Don Draper. The couple gave a joint statement to People Magazine regarding the split, stating that they would continue to be "supportive of each other in every possible way moving forward." (BRB, sobbing.)
Since the couple doesn't have any kids, I highly doubt we're going to have a repeat of Ben and Jennifer's "Nanny-gate" - in fact, the low-key couple kept so much of their relationship out of the press that it's likely we won't hear much about their split following their tasteful announcement. It's a shame that Jon and Jennifer are parting ways, but at least they are doing so amicably - they've been in one another's lives for so long that staying supportive of one another is likely the only thing that feels appropriate.
Here's hoping that the summer of broken hearts gives way to a far happier fall.
