Jennifer Carpenter, lead actress on the drama “Dexter”, split from her co-star and husband Michael C. Hall before entering into a relationship with married rocker Seth Avett.
Avett, of the band The Avett Brothers, was still married to his wife Susan but just announced today they are divorcing.
Carpenter began dating guitarist Seth Avett back in 2011 while he was still married to his wife Susan, whom he married in 2008.
Seth Avett has just revealed in a message posted on The Avett Brothers’ website that he and his wife have split.
One insider said, “Shortly after Jennifer’s split with Michael C. Hall, she began seeing Seth. She would fly all over to his concerts to be with him. No one saw this affair coming from those closest to Seth, but he finally left his wife last winter to be with Jennifer.”
Jennifer Carpenter and Seth Avett were involved in a long secret affair that destroyed his marriage.
The source said, “No one saw this affair coming from those closest to Seth, but he finally left his wife last winter to be with Jennifer.”
In April, Seth talked about his wife Susan, making no mention of problems.
But an insider said, “Seth no longer sings “January Wedding”, a song about his wife, at their concerts anymore.
One source said, “The affair was really hard on Susan, and even the band. It was former band member Jacob Edwards and his wife that really put Seth on the spot for cheating. They didn’t agree with it whatsoever and were uncomfortable with the situation.”
Fans of The Avett Brothers are angry at Seth for his affair with the actress. One fan wrote, “Seth is a dog and Jennifer Carpenter is a homewrecker. Plain and simple. I hope he’s happy now. I hope Susan is ok. No one deserves to be lied to. Seth deserves nothing. Not even his fans.”
Another wrote, “Seth Avett is a pig for cheating on his wife and Jennifer Carpenter is a very ugly woman.”
