The celebrity couple have been dating long distance and it became just “too hard” to handle it. Read on for more details on Sarah Silverman and Michael Sheen split…
The breakup came after Michael’s decision to move back to the UK put a strain on their romance. It’s sad that Sarah Silverman and Michael Sheen decided to end things.
In a light-hearted tweet, Sarah told her followers on Monday:
“The great @michaelsheen & I consciously uncoupled over Christmas. I mean, not ”over Christmas” – like that wasn’t the fight that ended it. No fight. We just live in different countries & it got hard. Felt we should just tell y’all so u stop asking, ”How’s Michael/How’s Sarah? (sic)”
Michael, whose ex is Kate Beckinsale, decided to go back to the UK after his 19-year-old daughter Lily was accepted into University. And, that Sarah referred to him as her ”on-again, off-again lover” because of the lack of time they got to spend together.
“I call him my on-again, off-again lover because we’re apart by oceans. Or, well, one ocean. You know me, I’m a loner, so it’s OK. His daughter turned 18 and he wanted to go home. He was here to be with his nearest daughter, now she’s off, she’s gonna start her own life …”
Yeah, NOT smart. She did it to herself, and if he was contemplating on staying or leaving Sarah made the choice easy for Michael.
Before the breakup Sheen previously said:
“Our relationship now is probably better than it ever was. And it helps that she [Kate] actually likes Sarah more than she likes me. The only way it doesn’t work out is that now I have not only Sarah, but also Kate and my daughter Lily, who all just make fun of me and embarrass me at any given point.”
We wish them the best of luck. Sorry to hear about the split you two.
