Meg Ryan, John Mellencamp split
Just call him John Melancholy. Okay, that was lame. What we’re trying to say is Meg Ryan and John Mellencamp are over.
According to People, Megencamp, who had been dating for three very private years, have called it quits. In the end, the Sleepless in Seattle actress, 52, and 62-year-old musician couldn’t decide where to shack up.
“The distance got to be too much,” a source tells Us Weekly.
Mellencamp lives on a farm in Indiana. Ryan lives in New York. We really should have seen this coming. The Small Town singer oft has spoken of his contempt for city dwelling.
“I’m too sensitive to live (in New York),” he told Rolling Stone last year. “I can’t see poor people. I can’t see the suffering. I can’t see the trash on the streets.” He swore he’d never leave Indiana, telling the mag, “I’m going to die here.”
