That must make the concerts a bit awkward.



Jennifer Carpenter seems to have moved on from her divorce from Dexter co-star Michael C. Hall -- by hooking up with folkie rocker Seth Avett, who just happens to be married. Or is for the time being, at least, because he's announce he's getting divorced.

“Shortly after Jennifer’s split with Michael, she began seeing Seth. She would fly all over to his concerts to be with him,” a source told Radar Online. “No one saw this affair coming from those closest to Seth, but he finally left his wife last winter to be with Jennifer.”

Avett announced his separation from wife Susan on the band's website Tuesday: "My wife and I have decided to end our marriage," he wrote about his wife since 2008. "We have been separated for some time. As I'm sure you will understand, this is a very difficuly and painful time for us and out families. I want to wholeheartedly thank you for respecting out privacy in this matter and I ask sincerely for your prayers, support and understanding."

Well, if they've been separated for awhile that's not as bad. It also explains why Carpenter has been raving on Twitter about all those Avett Brothers concerts she's been attending.
