    It's over for Nikki Reed and Paul McDonald.

    The Twilight star and the American Idol musician are separating after two years of marriage, People confirms.

    "After much consideration, Nikki Reed and Paul McDonald are ending their marriage. They have been living separately for the past six months due to work obligations," the actress' rep told the magazine.

    "They will continue to share their love of music, and are still working on their debut album, I'm Not Falling, releasing in 2014. They remain best friends and look forward to their continued journey together."

    Reed and McDonald first met at the Red Riding Hood premiere in March 2011 and shortly afterwards, confirmed they were indeed dating. After a whirlwind romance, the couple tied the knot in front of close family and friends during a private ceremony in Malibu in October 2011.

    The 25-year-old opened up to E! News last January about her marriage and revealed that compromise is key.

    "Last year Paul was on tour and I went to 30 shows, and yeah, it was a big deal, and this year I'm doing all this promo and he flies with me," Reed said.

    She added that embracing time on their own is also important in their relationship.

    "Independence is also really important in our relationship. [Paul] goes off and does his music and stuff like all day every day. We don't just hang out together; he separates and goes to the music studio and he works and then I work too."
