Report: Rosie O'Donnell and Partner Split

We’ve heard rumors for months that Rosie O'Donnell and her longtime partner Kelli Carpenter were on the rocks. But now there may be truth to the story, straight from the horse’s mouth.

In an interview with USA Today, Rosie made a tearful statement about the current state of her marriage. She said, "We're a family, we remain a family and we're working on the issues.”

She also noted that the couples’ four kids together—Parker, Chelsea, Blake, and Vivienne—are their priority. "They're adorable and wonderful and they are by far a priority," O'Donnell said.

"Kelli and I love each other very much and we are working on our issues. Those are the only words I am ever going to say. Ever. And that is something that has been agreed upon by all parties. But everything's fine and everybody's good and we're still both raising them together. We will both continue to parent them and we're friendly and everything's all right."

Sounds to us like it’s been splitsville for a while for Rosie and Kelli. It must be hard trying to keep this from the spotlight, and make the kids happy at the same time. We wish them the best during this tough time!
