'Twilight' Star Nikki Reed & Husband Paul McDonald Are Separating

nikki reed paul mcdonald separateMore sad news in the world of celebrities "consciously uncoupling." Twilight actress Nikki Reed and American Idol musician Paul McDonald are splitting up.

The couple, who married in October 2011, have been living apart for months, according to People.

"After much consideration, Nikki Reed and Paul McDonald are ending their marriage," Reed's rep told the magazine exclusively. "They have been living separately for the past six months due to work obligations." 

Even though they have separated, the pair are in the middle of doing an album together -- and that will go forward as planned.

"They will continue to share their love of music, and are still working on their debut album, I'm Not Falling, releasing in 2014," the rep said. "They remain best friends and look forward to their continued journey together." 

Reed, 25, played vampire Rosalie Hale in all three Twilight Saga movies. The film Thirteen, which she co-wrote with the director and starred in, was based on her own experiences as a teen.

McDonald, 29, was a finalist on season 10 of American Idol.

The couple met at the premiere of Red Riding Hood in March 2011 and tied the knot only seven months later. Before they got married, Reed gushed about how romantic McDonald was; more recently, she talked about how important it was for Hollywood couples to put each other first.
