Ronan Keating splits from wife

May 21, 2010

Ronan Keating has split from his wife.

The Boyzone singer – who has three children, Jack, 11, Marie, nine and Ali, four, with his model wife Yvonne – announced the couple are “amicably” separating after 12 years together.

A statement released to BANG Showbiz said: “With great sadness Ronan and Yvonne Keating today announce their separation. The separation is amicable and they will continue to work together in order to provide the best for their children. The family ask for privacy at this difficult time.”

Earlier this week, Ronan admitted he was surprised Yvonne had stayed with him for the last 12 years, and admitted he can be jealous if she goes out without him. He said: “I can’t believe Yvonne has stuck with me for so long. I still get incredibly jealous. The green-eyed monster rears its ugly head and brings out all my insecurities. “I don’t like it if Yvonne is out without me. I just can’t help it.”

Seems Ronan will have to get used to Yvonne going out by herself a lot more often now. Sadly seems another celebrity marriage over and done with.

On news just in it seems that Ronan was brought undone by Yvonne allededly finding saucy text messages on his phone hidden in a bag.

Yvonne – who has been married to the Boyzone star for 12 years – confronted the singer about the secret phone, leading to a confession of an affair with dancer Francine Cornell. A source told the Sun newspaper: “Yvonne confronted Ronan with a phone – there was nothing he could say.

“She ordered him to leave the family home and told him the marriage was over. She’d heard whispers and rumours about him cheating with Francine during the tour. The dancing on stage was very raunchy, but she’d got used to that over the years and trusted him.

“When she saw the texts on the secret phone she was devastated. She realised he’d been lying. The bottom just fell out of her world. Ronan could only admit what had happened and take it. They agreed to put out a joint statement about their separation.”

Doesn’t anyone stay faithful anymore?
