This just does not seem as a good year for celebrity couples. It is become almost impossible to keep counts about this year breakups. Another one in line is Jon Hamm and Jennifer Westfeldt split.

Even though two of them were not married they were in relationship for incredible 18 years.Two of them made joint statement to People magazine about their split: With great sadness, we have decided to separate, after 18 years of love and shared history.

We will continue to be supportive of each other in every way possible moving forward. It seems like the problems started after Hamm completed his 30-day rehab program for alcohol abuse, back In April. About that time rumors started to emerge about problems in their relationship, but couple denied it at the time. However from this perspective it seems it was the beginning of the end.

The couple started dating back in 1997 and stayed together till this year. Interesting thing about their relationship is that they never married and never had children together which was their choice. Jon Hamm and Jennifer Westfeldt starred together in the movie in 2011 called Friends with Kids.


Last year he gave interview for the People Magazine where he emphasized Jennifer’s role in his life, and explained how two of them manage to stay together for so long: “Our lives are entwined,” Jon said at the time. “It’s a long time [together]. I’m definitely the guy that repeats his stories! Mostly it’s just paying attention and keeping engaged and not succumbing to inertia or going through the motions.”
