Alright, this story is already annoying the shit out of me. Evan Rachel Wood and husband Jamie Bell have called it quits, which is a shame but it happens. The pair just had a baby last July, and it turns out, that might have been the beginning of the end of their relationship since apparently Evan is spending more time with the baby than she is having sex with her husband. The nerve!

From People:

“Nothing dramatic happened. They are friends and will continue to parent their son together. They have been friends for years and are happier this way than being married,” the source says.

The couple welcomed a son last July, and he became the focus, the source adds. “Evan loves being a mom. After her son was born, he has been her No. 1 priority. The marriage always came in second. They have different goals for the future and want to pursue them separately.”

As for Wood’s romantic future, the source adds: “Evan is very edgy and adventurous and wants to find a partner that she can share that with.”

What’s with grown ass men not being able to handle not being the center of their partner’s world? Obviously that intimacy and everything is important and parents still need to spend time with each other aside from raising kids, working, etc, but it just seems kinda ridiculous to me. If he was as invested in parenting as she is, he would probably feel just as exhausted and use the baby to strengthen their bond? I dunno, to be fair, I haven’t given birth personally, but I feel like it’s generally understood that kids are the first priority – especially when they’re little.
