Joey Fatone’s long romance with high school sweetheart Kelly Baldwin is over.
The couple, who had been married for eight years, have reportedly been living apart since February.
Joey Fatone and Kelly Baldwin had been together since high school and throughout *NSYNC’s success in the late 90s.
The former couple have two children – Briahna, 12, and Kloey, 3.
Joey and Kelly have been trying to keep their martial problems out of the public eye for the sake of their children.
An insider reveals, “They pretend Joey is traveling for work, but really he just stays with friends.”
Kelly, who married Joey in 2004 after 10 years of dating, has moved on and is even dating someone new.
Star magazine spoke to Kelly Baldwin and she didn’t deny their split. She did say, “I really don’t want to talk about this.”
The news comes after Joey Fatone recently reunited briefly with his former boy band members – Justin Timberlake, JC Chasez, Chris Kirkpatrick and Lance Bass – at Sunday night’s MTV Video Music Awards.
Fatone has been plagued with cheating rumors. In fact in 2007 he was rumored to be doing the horizontal mamba with his “Dancing With the Stars” partner Kym Johnson.
A source close to the DWTS show said, “Joey was acting like a bachelor. [Joey] flirted with women as if he was a single guy and he never wore his wedding ring. When everyone wanted to go home at the end of the night, he desperately tried to keep the party going.”
