FOR BREAKING CELEBRITY NEWS EVERY DAY
& MIRANDA KERR
Back in January, as rumors swirled about her time apart from husband Orlando Bloom
, model Miranda Kerr told PEOPLE it took "communication, honesty ... and patience" to make a marriage work. Now Bloom, 36, and Kerr, 30, have run out of that last ingredient: On Oct. 25 the couple revealed they had separated after three years of marriage. "This has been a long time coming," says a source close to the pair. "They started out great. They were so in love. But they're so different. They realized it wasn't working anymore." While Kerr, ranked as the second-highest-paid model by Forbes, travels the globe, the more private Bloom, who moved out of their N.Y.C. apartment three months ago, is onstage as Romeo to Condola Rashad's Juliet. As for gossip about their chemistry, "We're friends," says Rashad. "I have a boyfriend!" The split "was announced when Orlando was ready," says Kerr's grandmother Ann. "They can get on with their lives." And they'll stay devoted to son Flynn, 2: "They both adore that little boy."
