“SNL” costars Fred Armisen and Abby Elliot have split up after having been together since last summer. The break up between the comedians on “Saturday Night Live” is considered “completely mutual” and that the Armisen and Elliot remain friends today.
Armisen had been married for 10 months. In May of 2010, Armisen split from his wife. After the split, Armisen gained comfort in the arms of Elliot, his coworker. Hmm? Was Elliot the reason for Armisen’s break up with his wife. Suspicious?
Because Armisen never reconciled with his wife, he did file for divorce in September of 2011.
Fred Armisen and Abby Elliot had a lot of laughs together, as a couple, but they began to drift apart after Armisen, 44, began working filming during this past summer. He apparently worked a lot of hours, while Elliot was away working at another location.
Relationships always take a lot of work. And it appears that celebrities have a difficult time maintaining those relationships. It is too bad that they couldn’t have worked together on a project over the summer.
A source that knows the relationship of Armisen and Elliot spoke about the break up. He said, “They’re still good friends. This wasn’t a bad breakup or anything.” Good news! Maybe there is still hope that the “Saturday Night Live” costars will hook back up again in the near future.
What do you think are Fred Armisen and Abby Elliot a match made in heaven or will the split be permanent?
