Michelle Williams ‘splits from husband’ after less than a year of marriage

Michelle Williams has split from her husband less than a year after they married, it has been claimed.

The Brokeback Mountain starlet, 38, tied the knot with indie musician Phil Elverum, 40, in a very private ceremony last July.

But sadly they split at the beginning of this year, according to reports.

Michelle is notoriously private about her personal life and hasn't commented on the split.

It is said to be an amicable break-up and the former couple are still friends.

"Michelle and Phil separated at the beginning of the year," a source told People .

"It was an amicable split and they remain friends."


Last July the actress revealed that she'd married in secret in the Adirondack Mountains region in New York earlier that month.

She told Vanity Fair at the time: "Obviously, I've never once in my life talked about a relationship, but Phil isn’t anyone else.

"And that’s worth something. Ultimately the way he loves me is the way I want to live my life on the whole."

"I work to be free inside of the moment. I parent to let Matilda feel free to be herself, and I am finally loved by someone who makes me feel free."


Michelle's most public relationship before meeting Phil was with the late Heath Ledger , with whom she shared daughter Matilda, now 13.

The couple were together from 2004 to 2007 and remained close friends until Heath's untimely death in 2008.

Michelle said she "never gave up on love" after he died.

A representative for Michelle Williams has been contacted for comment.
