Nikki Reed and Paul McDonald have split after just two years of marriage. The "Twilight" actress and "American Idol" contestant seemed to be doing well together but things just weren't working out for them romantically. Apparently they are still going to be close friends and are still working on music together. On March 29, Us Weekly posted a statement from Reed's rep:

"After much consideration, Nikki Reed and Paul McDonald are ending their marriage. They have been living separately for the past six months due to work obligations. They will continue to share their love of music, and are still working on their debut album, 'I'm Not Falling,' releasing in 2014. They remain best friends and look forward to their continued journey together," the statement read.

Nikki Reed and Paul McDonald met in LA back in 2011 when McDonald was a contestant on "American Idol." The two instantly hit it off, moved in together after a month and were married seven months after that. Many people wondered if their relationship would last because things moved to quickly. It's unknown exactly why the two decided to split but it sounds like it's for the best.

Reed and McDonald fans are looking forward to hearing the former couple's new album which has been a long time coming.
