Meg Ryan behind John Mellencamp marriage break up?

Following the announcement last week of rocker John Mellencamp’s split from his third wife, it now appears that actress Meg Ryan may be the reason. Ryan, 49, and Mellencamp, 59, were seen as early as last October walking arm-in-arm in New York City. Recently, they’ve been spotted on Martha’s Vineyard, an island off the coast of New England. In New York they’re reportedly regular customers at the Gourmet Garage grocery store (they enter and leave separately to avoid photographers). A source told people.com: “She usually comes in by herself or with her daughter [Meg adopted a daughter from China in 2006]. I thought that was her husband because they seemed comfortable and familiar with each other, just like an old married couple.” Meg split from husband Dennis Quaid in 2001 after her affair with Russell Crowe made headlines. Mellencamp’s track record reveals that he was involved with other women prior to the breakup of both of his previous marriages. Meg has a son, Jack, with Quaid. Mellencamp has five children from his three marriages.

    Interesting I totally forgot she is a little tramp. Once a cheat always a cheat. I never liked her as an actress either.

    His third wife took up with him while he was married to his second wife, so she should have expected this.

    Wow you’re pretty harsh. Guess you forgot that Quaid was no angle and also an addict. People are humans and I think she has paid the piper for her past transgressions, especially being so openly dumped by Russel Crowe.

    Personally I am happy for her. Life is short and if you can find your soul mate, claim him:)

    People like you are the reason marriages don’t last … if your soulmate is with someone else, leave him alone!

    If it is meant to be, let the other relationship fizzle out.

    I really hate when people say life is too short, so go for it…. yes it is short, but that does not give anyone the right to break up a marriage or hurt someone else just to make themselves feel good for the moment … AS IF either will stay faithful, they are both dogs!

    Once a cheat always a cheat is right; she has no respect for her own relationships, and apparently has none for others’ either.

    The old fashioned word was ‘slut’

  6. Marganne • January 6, 2011 @ 1:27 PM

    Was Meg Ryan married to Antonio Banderos at one time?

    If I were a man and saw that face on a pillow next to mine first thing in the morning I would be scared as hell.

    Um, if she’s a slut, so is he. Why is it primariliy women who get so maligned most of the time. He could still choose not to be with her. He’s a big boy. And he also has a history of cheating. He obviously can’t keep it in his pants. Pot, kettle. Let’s spread the blame around. If this is true, they both deserve it.

    We really have no right to judge these people. We do not know what is going on in their relationships or if any of this is really true. Until you are privy to this type of information it is truly deplorable to call someone names, especially names like those. You are all discpicable human beings.

    All the movie stars jump from bed to bed ,what else is new?
    Marriage is not special to some ,they can afford to fool around ..just make a movie with a guy & their in love..
    only sincere people make it last..that’s Hollywood..

  11. Wendy • January 6, 2011 @ 2:06 PM

    We can be thankful we are not in their shoes…our “sins” don’t get front-page interest.

  12. Thomas Bell • January 6, 2011 @ 2:35 PM

    Uhmm.. Who Cares?????

  13. Annie • January 6, 2011 @ 3:00 PM

    It takes two to tango…their life and their mistakes. Just cause they are in the spotlight does not give us the right to judge them

  14. Cathy • January 6, 2011 @ 3:52 PM

    I totally agree — Who cares?????

  15. Tracy • January 6, 2011 @ 3:54 PM

    shawn slept with vanessa while his Beth was at her moms helping her recover from hip surgery. these people live down the street from me. I bet this interested you as much as this is just as much as hearing about which celebs are sleeping with each other!

  16. gbh999 • January 6, 2011 @ 5:21 PM

    This is a story of 2 skanks…

  17. LoveMyVamps • January 6, 2011 @ 5:34 PM

    Blah,blah,blah…who gives a “flying F**k!”
    I’ve always adored Meg Ryan and always will!
    She is talented, natural and really pretty!

  18. society's consciousness • January 6, 2011 @ 9:44 PM

    Are you on crack? Natural and really pretty..she looks like she got kicked in the face by a retarded donkey. Those blowfish lips are not natural or pretty. The only talent she has is playing how can I remain relevant.
    By the way deporable is an adjective ergo deporable boy/girl/person..not truly deporable you deplorable ass clown.
    dark1 equals stalker1. If you find him (soulmate), claim him. Did you get your name dark1 bc when you spend quality time with your soulmate its from the darkness the bushes provide. Try higher up when you snoop and switch your name to Rooftop Romeo..claim him. Claim a cab ride to the jail house you deplorable blowfish..burn

  19. Rita • January 7, 2011 @ 3:04 AM

    As society’s consciousness says about what dark1 said. I’ll elaborate on it to. Ya, just claim her at the checkout counter, eh?? What do you Think Ms Ryan would say about that?

  20. Jo-Anne • January 7, 2011 @ 8:23 AM

    judge? comment? opinion? all works here….

    news flash, infidelity is not reserved for celebrities, never has been, rampant everywhere

    meg isn’t the “reason” for the split, just the excuse for john to bail…

  21. Kathleen • January 7, 2011 @ 11:35 PM

    Yeh, I’m kind of surprised to hear that Meg got in the middle of a troubled marriage! However, more power to her for looping in Mellancamp–she could have done worse!!Only time will tell whether they don’t screw each other royally (no pun intended!) All in all, it’s their life, and what or how it works out will only be proven in time. Maybe they diserve one another! Finito!

    Ha,ha,ha such drama. Are you sure your not in the entertainment business??? ''First class act clown'' comes to mind, and not an very good one at that.

    Anyway, to answer your question. NO! I am not on crack. However, judging by your comment it sounds like you might be… You should really get checked! LOL!

  23. SharonS • January 10, 2011 @ 6:25 PM

    eh…in time they will probably cheat on each other

  24. TruthBeTold • January 14, 2011 @ 1:49 PM

    They deserve each other. The only question is which one will screw the other over first. Have fun cheaters!

  25. hayley • January 27, 2011 @ 12:28 PM

    everyone has a right to be happy and if you listened to jm’s latest cd, you can tell he’s anything but. maybe the split will amke them both happier. but as for meg ryan, are you kidding me?????????

  26. LoveMyVamps • January 30, 2011 @ 2:07 AM
