Back in January we learned the happy news that fashion designer Marc Jacobs got married to his longtime boyfriend Lorenzo Martone and today we are hearing that the couple have reportedly split! Thus far, there has been no official confirmation from either party but according to the New York Post, they’ve reportedly been telling friends privately that they are over. Could it be? Are Marc and Lorenzo really dunzo?
Fashion world power couple Marc Jacobs and Lorenzo Martone have split — for now. “They’ve both been telling people that they broke up,” friends said. Martone shot down rumors this month that he’d moved out of the Chelsea Merchantile apartment he shared with Jacobs, but sources say he’s planning to go soon. Martone wasn’t with Jacobs in Provincetown last week for the wedding of Jacobs’ business partner, Robert Duffy. Jacobs served as best man. A rep for Jacobs said, “We don’t comment on Marc’s personal life.” Martone also declined to comment.
Considering Jacobs’s track record, I can totally see how the end of his relationship might come this quickly … but I’m having a hard time believing that the couple — who have been dating for years now — would decide to split so soon after they took the official plunge and got married. I guess we’ll have to wait and see if this break-up report really pans out but I’m hoping it’s just a nasty rumor. It’d be a shame for another celeb marriage to Peace the Spork Out like this :(
