John Mellencamp and actress Meg Ryan split

John Mellencamp and actress Meg Ryan have split up after three years.

According to an unnamed source, the pair called it quits "a couple of weeks ago.”

Mellencamp and Ryan became an item shortly after Mellencamp’s split from his wife of 18 years, Elaine Irwin Mellencamp.

Another source told People, "It was the distance. She lives in New York and he resides in Indiana. It was the long distance that ultimately was the cause." A Mellencamp insider told Closer Weekly that celebrity played an important part in the split: "I don't think he loved all the attention he got just from dating an actress. I bet he'll stay away from dating another famous person for a while." (CNN)
