I must admit, I totally forgot that Meg Ryan and John Mellencamp were ever dating. They totally were! They’ve been together since 2011! Some people were even saying they were going to get married! That last bit unfortunately isn’t going to happen now, however, because just as quickly as their love was bestowed upon us (or me, since I forgot), it’s been cruelly ripped away: they’ve broken up.
“It was the distance,” a source tells PEOPLE. “She lives in New York and he resides in Indiana. It was the long distance that ultimately was the cause.”
The pair – who were last spotted together in May – became an item in late 2010, shortly after Mellencamp’s split from wife Elaine after 18 years of marriage.
Ah, what a shame. But wait – Mellencamp lives in INDIANA? That’s a bit random. Not necessarily a city you’d pick if you were in the height of your music career, I would think, but hey, to each his own.
