Did Marc Jacobs and Lorenzo Martone Split?

Most rumors don’t sadden us as much as this one. According to the New York Post, Marc Jacobs and husband Lorenzo Martone are over.

A supposed “friend” of the couple tells the paper, “They’ve both been telling people that they broke up.” Sources also say Martone either has or will move out of the fancy Chelsea Mercantile apartment they share.

Jacobs played best man at business partner Robert Duffy’s wedding in Provincetown on Tuesday last week and the Boston Herald reports that he was accompanied by Martone, while the Post says Martone was not present.

In any case, Jacobs’s rep, naturally, declined to comment on the story. But it sort of worries us that Martone also declined, instead of putting the rumors to rest.

Martone, 30, who runs the ARC NY talent agency, went public with his relationship with Jacobs, 46, at the Met Ball in May 2008. The two announced their engagement early last year and tied the knot in St. Barths on New Year’s Eve, complete with cake toppers in their likenesses.
