Mandy Moore and rock star husband Ryan Adams have called it quits just short of their six year mark.

The couple carried out a secret wedding in 2009 in Savannah, Georgia. They got married only four weeks after they announced their engagement.

Mandy Moore and Ryan Adams released a statement announcing the sad news.

“Mandy Moore and Ryan Adams have mutually decided to end their marriage,” her rep said in the statement. “It is a respectful, amicable parting of ways and both Mandy and Ryan are asking for media to respect their privacy at this time.”

It was only this past March that Mandy Moore and Ryan Adams celebrated their anniversary with their friends, the result being, of course, Instagram pics with captions like, “Celebrating love w the greatest friends and family last night. Feeling incredibly grateful today,” and “The best five years….”.

The best 5 years....

So what happened to bring the empire that Mandy Moore built with Ryan Adams crumbling to the ground?

Well, that's for them to know and us to find out. And we may never find out, because they are notoriously private about their life together.

In fact, Ryan Adams is known for being quite zealous about keeping his private life out of the spotlight.

Adams hung up during an interview with a Melbourne radio station in September last year because he was asked about it.

He said, “Okay, so I just hung up because I was on the radio getting asked about my wife,” he explained afterwards in an interview with BuzzFeed.

He added, “I was really nice about it the first time, and I’m sorry I won’t repeat myself. The deal is this: I’m a private person and I’ll be a gentleman and say I’m not talking about my marriage ever. I’ll never talk about it. Ever.”

What do you think could have possibly come between Mandy Moore and Ryan Adams?
