Twilight Saga” star Nikki Reed has separated from her husband, “American Idol” star Paul McDonald, after two years of marriage.

The pair released a statement to “People” revealing that they’ve already been leading separate lives for some time.

“After much consideration, Nikki Reed and Paul McDonald are ending their marriage,” a rep for the actress tells “People.” “They have been living separately for the past six months due to work obligations.”

Aside from being a couple, Reed and McDonald also work as a musical duo, and their debut LP, “I’m Not Falling,” is expected to bow later this year.

“They remain best friends and look forward to their continued journey together,” the statement continues.

The duo previously released “All I’ve Ever Needed,” a duet that ran over the end credits of the final “Twilight” film, “Breaking Dawn – Part 2.”
