Paulina Porizkova and Ric Ocasek Split Up…a YEAR Ago!

Who knew? Supermodel Paulina and hubby broke up a year ago!

Many are surprised by the shocking revelation this week that supermodel Paulina Porizkova and Ric Ocasek have broken up. The model and rocker husband and wife were together for 29 years! And they were one of the longest standing rock and roll couples around!

But what might be even more surprising is the fact that they broke up a year ago!  Paulina first met Ric when she appeared in a music video for his band, “The Cars”, way back in 1984.  She was only 19-years-old then and appeared in the video, “Drive”.

Today, they apparently still spend time together and are happy. They have two sons, Johnathan and Oliver, and she told her fans that they will still continue to see family photos of her, Ric and the kids together even though they are no longer together as a couple.

Paulina wrote on her Instagram, “Our family always has been – and still is – a well-built car. When the four of us are together, we can go wherever the road takes us. But as a bicycle, my husband and I no longer pedal in unison. So, we’re ditching the bicycle. Ric and I have been peacefully separated for the past year. The photos of our happy family are, in fact, happy family photos; we are just no longer a couple. The love we have for one another is so wide and deep it’s practically tangible, and that sort of love can never disappear. Expect to keep seeing happy family photos. As I’m sure you can understand, out of respect for our children and each other, we’ll not be commenting further (here or elsewhere) at this time.”

We wish the best for Paulina, Ric and their family!
