Cheyenne Jackson Confirms Split From Husband

With marriage equality comes divorce equality. Given the rash of celebrity gay and lesbian weddings as of late, you’d think everyone was in an euphoric blissful state. Not so. Cheyenne Jackson is the latest hitched LGBT celeb to announce his split from his partner. Jane Lynch also recently announced her divorce from her wife Dr. Lara Embry.

The 38-year-old Glee and 30 Rock actor confirmed his breakup to Entertainment Weekly. “Cheyenne Jackson and his husband Monte Lapka have mutually decided to divorce,” the two said in a statement to EW. “The couple have been together for 13 years, and were married in New York state two years ago. It is an amicable parting and understandably, a private matter.”

According to US magazine’s sources, the couple have been “living separate lives” for some time now. Based on Queerty.com’s findings, it sounds like Jackson is going through some sort of mid-life crisis. He’s allegedly moved in with his new much younger boyfriend in West Hollywood. He’s also altered his look, now sporting a handlebar mustache and new “prison tattoos.” Check out his new ink below.

The couple during happier times below. The first one is from their wedding day a couple of years ago. Hopefully, for their daughter Zora and dog’s sake, they remain civil and can co-parent without any drama.

    Marriage is mostly for women, straight and gay. Men not so much.
