Twilight series actress Nikki Reed and musician husband Paul McDonald announced they intend to divorce.
According to People, who exclusively revealed the split, Reed’s rep said that they have decided to call it quits. “They have been living separately for the past six months due to work obligations.”
The rep added that Reed and McDonald still plan on releasing their debut album, titled I’m Not Falling, together later this year. “They remain best friends and look forward to their continued journey together.”
The couple got married in October 2011 at a small, quiet ceremony in Malibu, reports E! News. They first met earlier in 2011 during the premiere of Red Riding Hood.
E! notes that only last year, the 25-year-old actress had explained that both compromise and having some independence was good for marriage.
Reed said that she supported him while McDonald toured in 2012 and he joined her for promotional work she was involved in. She then added, “Independence is also really important in our relationship. … We don’t just hang out together; he separates and goes to the music studio and he works and then I work too.”
