Mandy Moore and Ryan Adams announced Friday that they are “mutually” ending their nearly six years of marriage. The “License to Wed” actress reportedly filed for divorce from her musician husband citing “irreconcilable differences.”
A representative for the couple reportedly said that they had begun proceedings for their divorce, which was filed in a Los Angeles court. During the time of the filing, the 40-year-old Grammy nominated singer was in New York for a guest appearance on "Late Night with Seth Meyers," Radar Online reported.
“Mandy Moore and Ryan Adams have mutually decided to end their marriage of almost six 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,” the couple’s representative reportedly said in a statement.
Moore and Adams began dating in 2008 and married in 2009 in Savannah, Georgia, a month after they announced their engagement. The two do not have any children together.
Moore, who rose to fame after the release of her first album “Candy” in 1999, previously dated tennis player Andy Roddick.
In September 2014, Adams hinted that the couple was facing some marital problems.
When asked about his marriage during a radio interview in Australia, Adams hung up the call after saying he does not like sharing "about my personal life."
Later, he told Buzz Feed about the incident, saying: "I just hung up 'cause I was on the radio getting asked about my wife. I was really nice about it the first time, and I'm sorry, but I won't repeat myself. The deal is, I'm a private person and I'll be a gentleman and say I'm not talking about my marriage ever. I'll never talk about it. Ever."
