Remember early last year when we first heard that unlikely couple Michelle Williams and Jason Segel were a hot new item? Remember when they finally went public and let the world know that they were in lurve? Well, it looks like memories are all we have now that the couple have decided to break-up. According to a new report today, Michelle and Jason decided to call it quits earlier this month … which is a total bummer because even tho they seemed like an unlikely couple, I really loved them together. But, alas, it wasn’t meant to be … Michelle and Jason are dunzo.
Michelle Williams and Jason Segel are back on the market. The Oz the Great and Powerful actress, 32, and the How I Met Your Mother star, 33, quietly ended their romance earlier this month, sources tell Us Weekly. Though the two seemed happy together as recently as January, when they were photographed on vacation in Cancun with Williams’ BFF Busy Philipps, an insider tells Us that their romance couldn’t survive the long distance. (Williams lives in New York with daughter Matilda, 7, while Segel is based in Los Angeles, where his CBS sitcom is filmed.) Us Weekly broke the news of the couple’s undercover romance in March 2012. In June, a source told Us that Williams and Segel were “totally in love. Jason is obsessed with Michelle.” He had also taken a liking to his girlfriend’s daughter (with her late ex, Heath Ledger). “He’s been doing all sorts of ‘dad stuff’ with her, like drawing and playing music,” the insider said.
Boo. And another couple bites the dust. I’m tellin’ ya, long distance is really hard to make work. I suppose we can take comfort in the knowledge that it was prolly logistics that lead to the break-up rather than anything untoward or scandalous. I really thought these two made a great couple, it’s a shame that things didn’t work out. Sad.
