Jon Hamm And Jennifer Westfeldt Split, Because No Couple Is Safe This Summer

1st Annual PEOPLE Magazine Awards - Arrivals

Fall needs to hurry up and get here already, not only because I have way too many new sweaters in my closet and I need to wear them, but also because something is happening this summer that is causing every celebrity couple to break up. The latest victims are Jon Hamm and Jennifer Westfeldt, who have announced that they're splitting after 18 years together.

They released a joint statement to People about the breakup:

“With great sadness, we have decided to separate, after 18 years of love and shared history. We will continue to be supportive of each other in every way possible moving forward.”

Apparently there have been rumors that this split was on the horizon for months, although People reports that the couple was seen “canoodling” as recently as July 22 at the premiere after-party for the new Wet Hot American Summer series. They didn't give a reason for the split, but one can't help but recall that earlier this year Jon completed rehab for alcohol abuse. However, Jon credited Jennifer with supporting him at the time, and in April the couple denied that they were breaking up.

Whatever the reason for their split, other celebrity couples need to start taking preventative measures to make sure they're not the next victims this summer. Maybe they should do a little investigating to determine if Jon and Jennifer ate anything suspicious recently that might have messed with the part of their brains that makes breakup decisions.

Or perhaps they had a run-in with a witch who put a hex on them. Maybe that's the connecting thread between all the couples who've split this season. Quick! Everyone look through paparazzi photos of all the couples and check for old crones in the background. Let's solve this thing and save the rest of the celebrity world from breaking up… until a few years pass and they break up anyway.
