Yikes – another showbiz couple have decided to call it quits! Singer Ronan Keating and his wife Yvonne have reportedly ended their marriage.
The Boyzone singer and his former model wife are thought to have called time on their union in November, and are currently making plans for separate living arrangements. They have apparently not made an official announcement for the sake of their three children, Jack, 13, Missy, 11, and Ali, six. Ronan and Yvonne’s marriage suffered following his reported dalliance with dancer Francine Cornell on a Boyzone tour in the summer of 2009, and although they appeared to work things out, friends say the damage was irreparable.
A close pal of the couple has said: ‘They broke up in November and that was that. There was no going back. The damage to Ronan and Yvonne’s relationship was never repaired despite many attempts. They nearly sorted it out last year but it just didn’t last.
Ronan, 35 and 37-year-old Yvonne married in a private ceremony in 1998, shortly after the death of his beloved mother Marie from cancer and although they have split, their relationship has remained amicable.
