Their partnership went beyond marriage, but now Nikki Reed and Paul McDonald have decided to separate.

According to a rep for the "Twilight" star, "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."

However, they're not breaking off completely, as the spokesperson adds, "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 young couple got hitched back in 2011, after a whirlwind relationship, engagement, and marriage that took place within seven months.
