Actress Laura Dern and singer Ben Harper filed for divorce in October 2010, but were giving their relationship another go after being spotted together at the Golden Globes in February. Now, it’s been confirmed that the couple, who dated for five years before marrying in 2005, have split again.
“They’ve called it quits for the second time,” a friend of Dern told reporters. “They came to this conclusion last month. It was handled with the utmost respect and love; there were no crazy fights.”
“When they got back together earlier this year, they were happy,” the source added. “There’s a lot of love there, and they both really wanted it to work, but they just couldn’t work out their differences. They couldn’t meet in the middle.”
They have two children together:Â son Ellery, 10, and daughter Jaya, 7.
Darn! Another one bites the dust…
